TEEN triathlete Hayley Stanford started the new season in style last weekend, winning two major events at the Yarrawonga Multisports Festival.
The 15-year-old, who featured last Saturday on the Bendigo Advertiser's Women in Sport page, took out the National Aquathlon Championships open female title that afternoon.
The event involved a 2.5km run, 1km swim and another 2.5km run.
The following day, she was victorious in the junior elite section of the sprint distance triathlon (750m swim, 23.8km ride, 5km run).
Stanford, who lives in Gisborne and goes to school at Sacred Heart College in Kyneton, collected a total of $600 in prize money from the two races.
The funds will come in handy as she prepares to compete in the elite 2013-14 Scody Australian Junior Triathlon Series, which starts in Runaway Bay in Queensland in December.
