Year 9 Rangi Ruru student, Lily Greenwood, is the 2019 U13 New Zealand Secondary School Triathlon Champion.

 

Lily won the national title on Friday in New Plymouth after a hard-fought race. She was 4th out of the swim, battled to be 3rd off the bike and then came through winning by nearly a minute off the run.

 

The prizegiving was on Saturday.

 

This talented athlete has now taken the triathlon trifecta winning the Junior Girls Individual title at the South Island Secondary Schools Triathlon in Oamaru in early March, followed by success at the Canterbury Secondary Schools Triathlon Champs a week later, where she took out the U14 individual title.

 

Lily has also won the Canterbury Secondary School and South Island Secondary School Junior individual titles this year, completing an impressive triathlon trifecta this year.

 

Lily credits her success to Rangi cycle coach Marc Prutton’s training programme, and the Canterbury Tri Club.
