Doughty returns in style

Super-mum Kate Doughty made a spectacular start to her 2019 season, winning the PTS5 class at the ITU Paratriathlon World Cup in Devonport last weekend.

Rio Paralympian Doughty won the race in convincing fashion from Hungary's Petra Levay and Australia's Molly Wallace.

Doughty said she felt she had the race under her control across the three legs and was happy with how her comeback to the sport was coming along.

"I always like racing in Devonport and the conditions were perfect for the swim, bike and run," Doughty said.

"I was making sure I was remaining calm and it took really good rhythm, I am not back at full training capacity and it was great to win here.

Face to Face Again | Carol Cooke AM

February 10th, 2021

This week for the first time in almost a year I had a speaking gig, in person, face to face. In the last year I have done a number of gigs but because of Covid-19 they have all be virtual. That’s okay but it certainly isn’t the same as being face to face with your audience. To be able to gage their body language, their facial expressions, or how much you have them interested in your story is so much easier when you are in the same room and not looking at them on a screen.
