Amelia shared her experience and feeling with her mum. she said:
"I was a bit nervous while waiting for the swim wave to start because I never swam in open water before and I do not know what its like. I felt something touched my feet in the lake and lots of weeds under the water. I was scared the fishes going to eat me. The swim marshal told me only gold fishes live in the lake and not going to eat me. I did not want to give up and continued with the swim. I enjoyed the cycling and I like to practice more on turning. The run was a bit hard because it was hot.
Mum...I now know what a triathlon is like and I like to do it again. "
