Kate Schultz earns silver at age group world champs

THE world triathlon age group championships have a silver lining for Kate Schultz.

Schultz claimed second in the women's 35-39 age group at the ITU Age Group Standard World Championships at the Gold Coast. She was on the only Coast age group athlete to secure a podium position where more than 2000 athletes competed today over the standard distance encompassing a 1.5km swim, 40km cycle and 10km run.

The Mooloolaba athlete produced a swim of 21min 4sec, and then rode at close to 40km/h for a time of 1hr 1min 27sec in the bike leg, before finishing with a run of 41min 45sec.

She was about two minutes behind Kiwi Fiona Crombie who claimed the age group win.
