Shane Barrie.

Shane grew up Surf Life Saving and only made the switch to triathlons in 2007 when he was recognised in National Talented Identification and Development Program. In this time Shane has approached the sport with enthusiasm and determination. His favourite quote "Hard work isn't easy" is reflective of the attitude he has to his training and competitions. This attitude has seen Shane go from strength to strength, achieving solid results in competitions around the world.
