Moffatt is now on track for Sydney
WOOLGOOLGA’S world champion triathlete Emma Moffatt appears likely to be at the starter’s line in Sydney this Sunday for the world championship triathlon series opener.
The 25-year-old has been in doubt for the race, that starts and finishes at the Sydney Opera House, since suffering a shoulder fracture in a January bike crash but some strong swim sessions have Triathlon Australia (TA) confident about her status.
TA will probably know in the next day or so whether Moffatt is a definite starter in Sydney as she starts her world title defence.
“We’re yet to make a decision on Emma – that could take up to 48 hours – but at this stage she looks okay,” said TA high performance manager Michael Flynn.
“The final decision rests with Emma and we’ll give her every possible chance.”
The women’s team is already without Olympic champion Emma Snowsill, who is not yet at race fitness after recovering from injury and illness in the last few months.
