Emma Jackson caused a great amount of excitement as she meet young aspiring triathletes at the Beerwah Pool last week. About 40 youngsters who train and compete in triathlons in Beerwah and beyond had the opportunity to be inspired by Emma, a current Olympian and Under 23 World Triathlon Champion.
Emma encouraged the students to work hard to achieve their goals but to have fun while training and learning how to be great triathletes. Of course, not all aspire to being World Champions but it was fantastic to see everyone having a go and loving their triathlon experience.
Jacqueline Roach and Ella Childs also enjoyed seeing Emma’s World Championship medal and gear she had competed in at the Olympics. Emma will be competing in the Mooloolaba Triathlon so be sure get along and cheer her on.
