Junior athlete awards
Athlete of the month - 2012
As the junior section continues to grow with different athletes at different sessions, Jon has decided to have three Athlete of the Month awards; one for swimming (both sessions), one for Saturday's bike and one for Monday's run.
The A of M award is designed to encourage all athletes to attend sessions regularly, motivate and enjoy their triathlon experience and is awarded each month with the loan of a cup and a cycle shirt (to be returned in good condition).
We will have our Annual Awards presentation again later in the year.

Alice HoolahanAlice has recently returned to regular training since a five month break due to illness. She has had to start back at a very easy level, aiming to complete 20 minutes of exercise and has showed a lot of maturity and discipline in building herself back to full fitness.
It's great to see Alice back training and with a smile on her face, she is one of the five remaining members who have been with CPT from day one.
