Rahul Jegatheva is the National Champion for Aquathlon (400m swim and 3km run) In the 15-16 year old category! By more than a minute over 2nd. Inaugural winner of the 2017 Australian Open Schools Aquathlon Championships, which is part of the Australian Schools Triathlon Festival.

The event was held in April in Penrith at the Sydney International Regatta Centre.

In the video you see him finishing behind the 17-18 year old senior winner, Jackson Gray of NSW, but he actually beat him by quite a margin. The seniors started in a different wave, one minute ahead of the Rahul but he almost ran down even the senior winner!

Rahul was the only one who managed a time of under 16 minutes across all ages.

A great lead-in to the world championships in Penticton August!
