Mikayla and Ryan Waters with Steve Willis

Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon ambassador Steve ‘Commando’ Willis made a special visit to the University of the Sunshine Coast today to encourage participation in the TRYathlon that will be held at USC on Sunday 22 April.

Steve engaged with a dozen local children who will take part in the annual swim-cycle-run event, that for the first time, will be held on the beautiful USC campus.

The TV celebrity provided the children with tips on how to prepare for a TRYathlon, including physical, mental and nutritional aspects, and then put them through their paces with a series of simple exercises.

Steve answered questions about training, including one about running that saw the children challenge Steve to a 400m run around the athletics track.

At the TRYathlon, children will take part in small groups according to age and gender. Those in the 7-10 age group will do a 75m swim, 3km cycle and 500m run, while those in the 11-15 age group will do a 150m swim, 6km cycle and 1km run.
