Children’s ‘tryathlon’ (1st of 3)

Children’s ‘tryathlon’

The Weetbix ‘tryathlon’, held throughout New Zealand, encourages children to become physically active. This is the 2007 Devonport event. As well as swimming up to 200 metres, competitors run and cycle several kilometres to complete the tryathlon. The emphasis is on trying one’s best and having a go.
