									KZN Triathletes & Duathletes excellence is recognised

Saturday evening saw the 2008 KZNTA AGM and Awards evening take place at the Fulton
School in Winston Park. It was fantastic to see the AGM gain the support of over 80
interested athletes set on supporting and growing Triathlon and Duathlon in KwaZulu Natal.

The Awards dinner which took place after the AGM, was also a huge success, with athletes
families and friends making the first Awards dinner a special one. Ironman Athlete Lawrence
Van Lingen was the nights MC, where he welcomed the athletes to the first event Awards
dinner and proceeded to handout Awards and Medals from the long list of outstanding
achievements done by our KZN Athletes.

Starters, dinner and the athletes favourite “Chocolate Brownies” was served to fill the
tummies as the awards were handed out. The development of KZNTA was also briefly
discussed and ideas from the athletes were noted and encouraged. One thing that really
surprised me and was pleasing to see, was the number of junior athletes we had collecting
awards and colours. KZN has a shortage of junior athletes in multisport events and to see the
ones that we have already competing and doing so well is really encouraging.

Eight year old Timothy Hayward (U8/9) scooped his Triathlon Colours as well as the Award
for being the top athlete in his Age Category. Francois Mienie was also awarded his Colours
for both Triathlon and Duathlon, quite an achievement for the same year.

Top female age grouper of the Year went to Helen Buley, with Triathlon stalwart Ken Curr
claiming the Men’s top triathlete’s award. The “True Grit” award, given out to sheer
determination and pushing yourself beyond the norm, was given to AWAD athlete Oswald
Kydd, who successfully completed amongst other events, the 2006 & 2007 Ironman Triathlon
as well as the Durban Ultra Triathlon.

Thank you to everyone who attended the AGM and Awards Dinner, good luck in your training,
keep safe out on the road and we look forward to you having a highly successful 2008
season.
