Triathlon ACT Committee 2013-14:
The Triathlon ACT Committee is responsible for overseeing the organisation of triathlons, duathlons and related events. Each year the committee is elected at the Annual General Meeting and serve a term of one year. The current committee consists of the following people:
- President: Steve Hough
After competing with teams in triathlons for a couple of years, I completed my first solo triathlon in 1999. Having found that my fast-twitch fibres no longer existed, I decided that I was best suited to triathlons that gave me plenty of time to finish so I’ve done quite a few ½ ironman races and 3 Australian ironman triathlons since then (the last one was the 2009 Oz Ironman in Port Macquarie). Short and multi-day adventure races also caught my interest in the mid ‘90s. After being a committee member and vice president of the Vikings Tri Club for several years I found myself on the TACT committee (still not sure how that happened) and then vice president. I very much enjoy working with a great bunch of people on the TACT committee and in theTACT office. During that time I also developed a keen interest in the organisation and running of triathlons. After a period of learning how to set up and run a race, including jointly managing the Australian Duathlon Championships in 2007, I “flew solo” as a Race Operations Manager a couple of years ago and have enjoyed a regular stint as a ROM each winter and summer season.
- Vice President: Alex Gosman
Coming of a running and swimming background I have been doing triathlons in one form or another since the mid 1980’s but have always found the bike a challenge. Not helped by only having a selection of second hand $20 bikes. It is only over the last few years that I have become “serious” about cycling under pressure from my hyper competitive children although I still remain a danger to any peleton I join and my ability to fix a puncture remains limited. I generally participate in the local season and a few interstate events as well as oceans swims (eg Cole Classic). I was chuffed to have been actually penalised for drafting at husky last year as i have never been fast enough previously on the bike to draft (Not that i was drafting of course).
As I age my claim to fame as a triathlete increasingly becomes “being the father of Hayley and Michael” which is not a bad thing really. I have been a long standing member of Bilbys and really love the friendship the sport offers. I am also the President of Athletics ACT and hope to see more scope for co-operation and promotion between the two sports and look to focus on raising participation particularly at the junior level where triathlon has alot to offer.
