Gibbs trio set their sights on Bendigo kids TRYathlon

THREE sporty siblings from the Gibbs family are preparing to take part in the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon.

Matilda, Harvey and Solomon will be among the 900 competitors expected to take part in the event on March 2.

Everyone that competes in the event will receive a medal for their participation.  

In the lead up to the TRYathlon the trio are completing a diary entry each week, detailing their training regime.

 Matilda Gibbs, 15-years-old.

On Wednesday I had another City 2 Surf training session, which meant running another eight kilometres before school.

On Friday I swam in the Girton Grammar Senior School Swimming Carnival. 

On Sunday I went for a long 12 kilometre bike ride with Mum and Solomon. There were lots of hills during the ride and it was very tiring.

Thank goodness that netball training hasn't started yet!

Harvey Gibbs, 14-years-old.

This week I did more training for the City 2 Surf.

I am still enjoying it, even though it is really hard, especially before school starts!

On Friday I swam in the Senior School Swimming Carnival.

I even took part in the synchronised bombing event.

On Saturday my tennis matches at the Bendigo Tennis Centre were cancelled because of the rain.

But I still managed to play tennis on Sunday.

Dad has got a beard like Pat Rafter, but that's where the similarity ends. I won 6-3.

Solomon Gibbs, 10-years-old.

I had the Junior School swimming trials last Tuesday and I have qualified for three events, which take place this Friday.

I had basketball training on Thursday, which was fun and then a match at the Schweppes Centre on Friday night. We won!

On Sunday I went on a really long bike ride with mum and my sister, Matilda. I'm hoping that the TRYathlon bike stage won't be as far! Or as hilly!
