2016 success for our ITU Youth, Juniors & U23 Development programs

Posted on Posted in Blog

From year to year our program has continued to evolve, & mature. From a coaching perspective Mick Delamotte always reflects upon each season to evaluate & consider what needs to change, what can we improve on & how can this be acheived. “In the 15 odd years I have been coaching in Triathlon, this, my first as a full time professional Coach, I have never experienced a year like this. Focussing on the tremendous work put in by my athletes, supported by committed families who have not only supported their kids but also bought into the culture, values and methodologies of my coaching, we have, in an understated way, had a pretty ‘cool’ year.”

1 x Junior Sprint Age Group WORLD CHAMPION
2 x U23 (Sprint & Standard) CONTINENTAL CHAMPIONS
2 x Elite (Sprint & Standard) Continental Silver medals
2 x Aquathlon Open NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
1 x ITU Junior X Tri NATIONAL CHAMPION

Multiple outright & Age Group category wins in Youth, Junior, Age Group & Elite categories across the globe.
Multiple selections in State & National Teams

The above feats are extraordinary and have come from within, they are HPT athletes. Whilst many know the individuals, we wanted to highlight our international & domestic success holistically, as each athlete, coach, service provider and support staff member has contributed to the individual success that brings about titles like the above. Importantly, behind each of the above titles, comes a daily training environment with committed athletes, training purposefully.

“It is critical that we recognise that not all our athletes are, or strive to be World Champions, but each athlete has a role to play in being a positive contributor to an environment that ‘spits out’ the above results. Everyone should take pride in their individual achievements in 2016 & everyone should feel as sense of pride in knowing they contributed to phenomenal results that have been achieved by HPT athletes in 2016.”
