For Oliver Larcombe (Year 13), 2021 has been a triumphant year winning several medals at various triathlons around the country. However, it was the win at the New Zealand Secondary Schools Triathlon Championships in March that gained Ollie a spot to compete at the 2021 U19 Junior World Championships in Bermuda this year. The team is made up of the best three males and females in New Zealand. Sadly, due to the arrangements of the MIQ facility, Ollie and his teammates are unable to participate in the overseas
race, as they cannot secure accommodation on their return home.
Looking ahead to the 2022 World championships in Montreal, Ollie is determined to make the U19 New Zealand Triathlon team once again so he can finally secure an international race.
