Yesterday, the first Junior Challenge Workshop provided children between the ages of 6 and 13 with a unique opportunity to get a taste of the world of triathlon. With 20 enthusiastic participants from the Kaiserwinkl region and under expert guidance, the workshop was a great success.
A Diverse Program for Aspiring Athletes
The workshop kicked off with an introduction to running technique, where participants received valuable tips to improve their running skills. This was followed by playful transition training to prepare the young athletes for the challenges of an aquathlon. However, the highlight of the day was undoubtedly swimming in the idyllic lake. The children had the chance to showcase their swimming abilities either in freestyle or breaststroke. Prior to the swimming training, they also received important information on water safety rules and emergency tips.
We would like to express our special thanks to Eva Dollinger, who enriched the workshop with her expertise and passion. As a former professional triathlete, who achieved second place twice in the Challenge Kaiserwinkl-Walchsee, she brought valuable experiences and motivated the young athletes to give their best.
Additionally, we would like to thank the water rescue team for ensuring the safety of the children during the swimming training.
The 1st Junior Challenge Workshop in Walchsee was an unforgettable day for everyone involved. The enthusiasm and dedication of the participants overwhelmed us as organizers. We are grateful for the opportunity to introduce young athletes to the world of triathlon and to instil in them the joy of sports.
We look back with pride on the successful 1st Junior Challenge Workshop in Walchsee. We are already looking forward to future events and inspiring even more young people to embrace the world of triathlon.
The Junior Challenge Kaiserwinkl-Walchsee on July 1, 2023, will once again offer the chance to witness the greatness of these young athletes on the sports stage. Join us and experience the fun, challenges, and rewards that the sport of triathlon has to offer!
