Matt Kerr has been making his mark on the Australian Triathlon scene taking out another convincing win. This time at the Noosa Triathlon, a short (!) Olympic course consisting of a 1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run. Targeted at the sprinters and not really the Ironman endurance crew, Matt went into the race knowing it was going to be fast and was using the race as a training run leading up to future events.
Matt had a great swim and worked hard in the bike leg to bank some time as he knew he would be up against some fast runners in the last leg. After infiltrating the Pro group that lead off 5 mins ahead of the Open field, he crossed the line 1st on Podium with the next competitor some 3 mins behind him, so a great win.
In the next few weeks Matt is working towards a half Ironman in Hervey Bay as a lead up to the Western Australia Full Ironman in Busselton. He is keen to get this one under his belt so he can hopefully qualify for Kona 2022, just in case Taupo doesn’t go ahead in March 2022. Then it’s back to NZ and into MIQ 18th Dec for the summer series here for a solid lead up to the NZ Ironman in March.
All the best for Hervey Bay Matt, we look forward to hearing how you get on.
