This event proved to be one of Liam’s most successful races and he is more motivated than ever to continue his dream of making it to the Tokyo Paralympics.

In 2013 Kerryn became an upper limb amputee after contracting a life threatening bacteria called necrotizing fasciitis following a bicycle accident. It was devastating news for a sports fanatic like Kerryn. Prior to her amputation Kerryn had been participating in many triathlons from Sprint distance to Ironman, Fun Runs from 5k to Marathon, and Cycle events from 20km to 2000km!
Following Kerryn’s amputation she was determined to regain her fitness and health so Kerryn set about re-learning to ride, run and swim. Although there have been many challenges along the way, Kerryn is now back competing as a Para-Triathlete. In 2015 she represented Australia at the World Para-Triathlon Championships in Chicago, winning a silver medal in her class, giving her number 2 ranking in the world. An incredible achievement only 2 ½ years after becoming an amputee and almost losing her life!
Being fit and healthy and once again participating in sport has empowered Kerryn with the confidence to believe she can still achieve anything she wants to in sport and life.
Kerryn is also the founder of START foundation, assisting others with amputations to achieve their own sporting dreams.
Ross made the decision to move to from sprint distance triathlons to the longer course triathlons; and has regularly completed the IronMan 70.3 event.
Ross competed in Geelong 70.3 doing his fastest time ever in the swim for that distance race and fastest bike & run.
He is always looking for a new way to push himself and planning his next Olympic distance race.
Ross plans on adding another bungee jump to his belt while in Cairns… adrenaline junkee, or what?!
