After discovering an interest in triathlons earlier this year, the 21-year-old attended Arena Joondalup’s recent open day and was the lucky winner of its 12-month gym membership.

‘I’m completely blown away ” triathlon is an expensive sport and having this kind of access to such a great facility is just a dream come true.

‘Triathlon involves a huge amount of training both on- and off-season and the complex offers everything I need to get into my best form.’

The series starts with a triathlon on December 14 in Hillarys.

Kristie said she hoped to continue triathlon training to compete in an Olympic-distance triathlon and marathon.
