Trialetes, trampolinist favoured
WINNING The Morning Bulletin/CHR Senior Sport Star award for June was another surprise victory for Rockhampton triathlete Grant Tidbury.
Tidbury is still a newcomer in the triathlon ranks, but that did not stop him qualifying for his first Australian triathlon age team in June.
In his first serious attempt at the standard distance team, Tidbury booked a start in Hawaii during October.
However, the selection road was just as rocky as some of his qualifying races. He was in, then out, then in again, then out again, and finally he cemented his Australian start.
Tidbury collects $200 for winning the monthly award and is now in the hunt for the $3600 overall prize.
The Morning Bulletin/ Frenchville Sports Club Junior Sport Star for June is trampolinist Riley Glazebrook.
Glazebrook, a Victoria Park trampolinist, scooped the pool at the national championships in June winning his 11-12 years men's individual trampoline, double mini trampoline and synchronised trampoline events.
Each junior monthly winner receives $250 and is eligible to win the overall prize of $3000.
Nominations are now open for the July monthly junior and senior sport star winners.
