Triathlon Australia Collection




This file contains the July 1999 Redcliffe Tri Club newsletter, titled “Tribune.”

The newsletter contains race results, advertisements and the President’s report. The newsletter profiles two club members, Kirsty Jackson and Andrea Colbert and includes a story from the “Redcliffe & Bayside Herald” about triathlete Geoff Heydon in his preparations for the world long distance championships in Sweden.

The newsletter features two club members, Mary Jackson and Irene, who completed the Brisbane half-marathon, while each pushing a child with cystic fibrosis in a wheelchair. They wanted to give the children the experience of participating in a marathon.

Dr Hunt used these documents in her research for the book Multisport dreaming: The foundations of triathlon in Australia published in 2014.
