MOST RECENT

After a great season, we are excited to have a number of Jarasport athletes qualify for the ITU Age Group World Championships on the Gold Coast in September!
Over the next few weeks we will be sharing more on our athletes, starting with GLENN HALUPKA
Age Group: 30-34
Occupation: Engineering Associate
What do you love about Triathlon?: That despite the fact that it's just you out there slogging it away, you always get lots of support from fellow racers, team mates and spectators. The cheering always pushes you on when you're smashed, and makes you realise what you're really capable of.
Proudest Achievement to Date: A week ago I would have said crossing the finish line at Port Macquarie Ironman 70.3, but that was recently trumped when I found out that I'd been selected to represent Australia at the Age Group World Championships!
Next Goal: I have some small(ish) goals throughout winter to keep me going, including standing on the podium after an Individual Time Trial. But ultimately the big one is to race well at the World Champs and get out of the water in a reasonable time.
Favourite/Best Leg: Definitely the bike, no hesitation. It's where I'm the most comfortable. I might have a look of horrible pain on my face when I'm pushing hard, but I'm loving every second of it.
Favourite Course/Event: There's different aspects about a few that I like. I'd say that as a whole, despite being turned into a duathlon and having a crash on the bike, the Australian Sprint Championships on the Gold Coast in February 2018 was the most fun and had an amazing atmosphere.
Favourite Session of the Week: I love a good thrash on the bike at Tour de Burbs. Hill climbs, sprints and break aways, it feels like a little race every week!
Favourite Motivational Quote: I remember regretting putting this on my high school yearbook, but it feels relevant to me now, "If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough" - Mario Andretti, retired racing driver.
CONGRATULATIONS GLENN! We are so proud of your achievements to date, and can’t wait to see what you are capable of come September! 🏊‍♂️🚴‍♂️🏃‍♂️⭐️

Last weekend saw many of our main squad girls tackle their first Olympic distance triathlon at the #2xutriathlonseries 🏊🏻‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️ and we also had a large number of girls using this race as a key training day towards #im703busso in 3 weeks time! 🤗 😘#racedayisgettingclose #trichicks #trichickstribe

SMILE! It’s FRIDAY! 😃 Flashing back to Good Friday, where we went for a dip with our friends at @daveyblack_fit 🏊‍♂️ What a great triathlon community we have in Melbourne! #jarasport #jarasportcoaching #swimbikerun #2xutriathlonseries #challengemelbourne #ironman #ironman703 #triathlon #triathlontraining

Yesterday I found out that I qualified to represent Australia at the ITU world championships. 🇦🇺
.
.
Jan 2017 I did my very first triathlon. For a long time I’d thought it would be fun to do a tri (back when I lived on the Gold Coast), but it seemed like a huge task to do. I clearly remember being a little scared with my first triathlon being a club distance (1km swim, 30km bike, 8km run), whether I’d be able to go the distance. Up until that point the longest event I’d done was city2surf (once) which in my mind was a massive endurance effort (56mins 🤣).
.
.
In May 2017 I heard about the Gold Coast hosting the ITU world championships and you could represent your country in your AG, I thought ‘hey I could do this!’.
.
.
I started training in earnest around mid June and entered the first qualifying event at Townsville. I arrived in the best shape I’ve been in my life and managed an 8th finish... this was going to be tougher than I’d thought.
.
.
Shortly after this event, I ask @tford14 to coach me, as I really needed someone to give me guidance and also accountability since I train solo. Each qualifying race I went to, I was stronger and faster.. but the competition also picked up. I just gave my best and didn’t give up. The qualifying was a lot tougher than I’d hoped! I’ll get my latest race report up for the 2xu race shortly 😁
.
.
Being on the list to represent Australia on the Gold Coast, my childhood home, means a lot to me. I’m looking forward to racing in front of friends and family, plus all the other Aussie supporters! I can’t wait to experience the atmosphere, and seeing how much more progress I’ve made. 🤙

If you are wondering why the majority of T1 times at @2xutriathlonseries on Sunday were 3:00min exactly, I have queried it with Oz Timing and it was because the transponder mat failed to pick up swim exit times, so they took your start time to T1 exit time, and took out a default 3min T1.

Never stop pushing until you cross that line.

I made an overtake 20m from the finish for position in my AG. 😁 #neverstoppushing #alltheway #throwback

My swim leg at the #2xutriathlonseries race over the weekend wasn’t particularly fast, but did I enjoy it?
.#congratulations #sports #triathlon .
💯% I did!

Having a run between the 2 laps was a first for me, and hearing and seeing your supporters cheers you on was 👌#support

A huge part of prepping for this ironman 70.3 has been overcoming my fear of swimming, specifically in the ocean. I’ve never been a swimmer and for the better part of the last 10 years I’ve avoided anything that involved swimming or water based activities. The anxiety I get as soon as my feet can’t touch the ground, the feeling of not having complete control and the fear of not being able to get myself back in are the mental barriers I face each ocean attempt. 4 months on and Sunday was my first real test, with other people around me I got through 1.5km in the ocean. I’m not where I need to be just yet and I still have some obstacles to overcome but if you want something bad enough you will fight for it. #justdontquit

Honestly 🤦🏻‍♀️ Every race pic I look like I’m in pain, hating life and wanting to kill someone. To be honest I probably am in pain but I’m totally loving life I promise!! I’m focused 🤨 #gameface @entrixsport @momentumendurance @2xutriathlonseries
