Moffatt bounces back
A YEAR ago Woolgoolga’s world champion triathlete Emma Moffatt was worrying whether she was going to be fit enough to compete in the 2010 world championship series.
Having suffered a terrible shoulder injury in a bike accident near her Gold Coast base, Moffatt managed to bounce back to defend her world crown.
There are no such worries for the 26-year-old this year.
Ahead of the opening round of this year’s series in Sydney on April 9 and 10, Moffatt is flying and has recently claimed her second national sprint championship.
“It’s a nice title to have, it’s not the main goal of this season but it’s a great way to start the year and hopefully I can continue and be consistent,” Moffatt said.
In the lead-up to the Sydney race, Moffatt will be competing in the annual Mooloolaba triathlon, the second largest triathlon in Australia, which is being held in a fortnight.
