Coach Patrick Kelly and his team are representing Canada at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival. The team has completed the draft-legal sprint triathlon, and they'll compete in a relay event today.

In the Men's race, the Canadian team of Matt Sharpe, Aaron Thomas and Cole Stewart led the swim pack, and kept the pace high as the lead bike pack of 11 stayed at away from the rest of the field. Onto the run, Great Britain's Jonathan Brownlee (younger brother to Alistair Brownlee) took the win, with Matt 9th, Cole 10th, Aaron 12th.

In the Women's race, Christine Ridenour made the front pack of 5, which stayed away and entered T2 with a ~0:45" lead. On the the run, Aussie Holly Aitken took the win, which Christine holding on to 5th, and Kyla and Alex Coates finishing 7th and 8th.

Congrats to coach PK and the athletes, and best of luck in the relay.
