Jason Clark - Vice President (Elected Director)

Jason is the Program Leader – Facility Operations at the Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre. Jason has only been in the sport of triathlon for six years, but fell in love with the challenge it brings, signing up for his first full Ironman before he’d completed his first Triathlon! Jason prefers the long-distance format – he trains and tries to compete in at least one full Ironman per year. When Jason saw a vacancy on the Triathlon Tasmania Board in 2018, he thought he could be of assistance after sitting on the Triathlon South Committee for several seasons. Jason is currently the Vice President of Triathlon Tasmania and brings knowledge, motivation, a fair playing field as a Technical Official and a laugh to triathlon! Jason loves being involved and helping out where he can.
