BATTLING Stifling heat and strong wins, Coffs Harbour's Richard Pearson has claimed a podium finish at the Queensland Long Course Triathlon Championships in Goondiwindi.

An inspired performance from Pearson saw the coffs triathlete deliver against some of the Australia's best to finish third overall.

Dubbed the Hell of the West, the event sees triathletes take on a torturous 2km swim, 80 km cycle and 20km run.

Sticking with the lead pack at the end of the swim, Pearson maintained his slick pace throughout the cycle stage before finishing strong in the run to steal a place on the podium.

The result justified a long six month of intense training for Pearson who will travel to the US for competition later this year.

It was a great day all round for Coffs Harbour representatives with solid performances from Clint Rowlings, Aaron Newman and Mark Garner.

With the BCU Coffs Harbour triathlon quickly looming closer as well as the Triathlon of South West Rocks, local triathlon is on the rise.
