After initially resorting to iso-style events in a bid to promote self-improvement, Broome Tri Club is busy getting ready for the resurrected Cable Beach Triathlon. The club’s biggest annual event, which will be held on August 30, was initially called off because of COVID-19 restrictions, but has been put back on the sporting calendar as WA has gradually eased restrictions. Club president Jude Millard said everyone at the club was really excited to be able to hold the triathlon. “We’re really pleased to give people the opportunity to participate in this community event now that restrictions have eased for us to be able to hold the event,” she said. “There will be three categories for adults, which are the enticer, sprint and Olympic distances, and we will have the kids’ triathlon, which will be novelty distances on the beach for younger children.” It will not just be locals getting among the action on August 30. Some professional triathletes will be making the trip to Broome to compete. Ms Millard said Blake Kappler, David Bryant, Kurt Wesley and Dimity-Lee Duke would be competing in the triathlon. “They’re coming up for varying periods of time and there will be opportunities for people to take part in clinics with them for various skills,” she said. “David, who is a Paralympian, also works as a dietitian, so we’re hoping to get him working with the Broome Barracudas and the Broome Sports Association’s Talent Development squad to give them a few tips and tricks. “We’re hoping to give people the opportunity to train with the pros in the week leading up to the triathlon.” Ms Millard said there would be a ticketed sundowner event on August 29 at Broome Lotteries House at which people would be able to join a Q&A session with the pro athletes.
