Newport Proud of their Iron Athletes

The very best from around Australia were lined up for the last round in the 2019/20 Nutrigrain Iron Series at North Cronulla on Sunday January 19.  Our local iron athletes brought home fantastic results.

In a last-minute change, Zach Morris and Emily Doyle were called up to race only a few days before the competition which meant we had 6 Newport athletes competing.  They joined Lizzie Welborn, Max Brooks, Jackson Borg and Charlie Brooks at the Survival Round.

Lizzie Welborn did not disappoint.  This final round offered her a chance of getting her first podium finish in the series since she first qualified.  Following a training season fraught with disruptions from suffering glandular fever to changing clubs from North Bondi to Newport, the 21-year old manage to pull it together this season.  The result was a well-earned third place for Lizzie Welborn.
