My Beach

With series points tight, more than 120 athletes from 12 clubs lined up on Sorrento Beach this morning set to do battle in the third and final round of the WA Ironman Series.

First to hit the water were the U17’s and, backing up his wins in the first 2 events, it was North Cottesloe’s Johann Szymanski who, with a dominant performance, took out the event & series win. Fremantle’s Archie Davis finished out the series with three 2nd placings while Trigg Island’s Liam Foley’s consistency saw him round out the series podium, despite being pipped for third in today’s event by City of Perth’s Jackson Blom.

In the female arena, coming into the 3rd and final race it was a three-way tie for points between City of Perth’s Sophie Baron-Hay, Mullaloo’s Jenna Stummer & Trigg Island’s Mikaela Innocent. It was Baron-Hay who held on for the win and series honours, with Stummer claiming another 2nd to finish out the series in 2nd. City of Bunbury’s Kate Lockley, debuting in the series, finished in 3rd but a 6th in today’s event was enough to see Trigg Islands Mikaela Innocent close out the series in 3rd.

Next up were the Youth and showing his consistency, it was City of Perth’s Jules Fredonnet who rounded out the series with 3 wins and series honours, ahead of North Cottesloe’s Jackson Anderson. Kristian Seidl (North Cottesloe) finished today’s event in 3rd ahead of club mate Tex Cross, who secured enough points to finish the series in 3rd.

In the female event, North Cottesloe’s Rubie Turner, Lexi Menin and Abie Loraine battled it out for the lead. Ultimately, it was Turner who took the win, giving her a clean sweep and the overall series as club mate Lexi Menin finished out the event and series in 2nd. While North Cottesloe’s Abbie Loraine took 3rd in today’s event ahead of Sorrento’s Harriet Chin, it wasn’t enough to knock Chin off the podium as she finished out the series in 3rd.

In the Open male event, Trigg Island’s Will Savage wrapped up a strong series with the hat trick ahead of City of Perth’s Max Anderson-Loake, whose 3rd in today’s event behind club mate Matt Colliss was enough to secure him  2nd in the series ahead of Colliss in 3rd.

With the women, as we’ve seen throughout the series, the lead switched back and forth but ultimately it was Trigg Island’s Macarah Mallis who took her 2nd win and the series title, ahead of Mullaloo’s Soraya Lee, and City of Perth’s Nikita Fredonnet.
