Auroa School Triathlon 2016


It's the Triathlon!  let's go!


Clap!  Mr Chittenden clapped his clappers to start the race. It was Friday. All of Auroa school (and others) were at the school Triathlon. The Triathlon was at Auroa school and on the field. The Triathlon is a yearly event.

When we were running I felt so quick, to be fair I was doing only one lap. I was doing the small Triathlon and Mario ( my brother) was doing the mini Triathlon. I thought I was doing good. It was fun.

When we were biking I did 1km. I thought I might lose until suddenly…..  Alicia, Sacha! I passed 2 people, I started to feel excited.

I quickly got off my clothes and ran to the swimming pool. When we were there I grabbed a flutter-board and swam. I was doing one width.


Once I had finished I had an ice-block, sausage and a drink. I felt happy. I thought I did something amazing.
