Barry Lipp and Norm Abel represented Australia at the 2022 World Triathlon Age Group Championships in Abu Dhabi late last month.

Despite illness and injury in the lead-up, the pair – who won medals at the Maccabiah Games in July – both performed well in the intense heat.

Lipp came 29th in the men’s 60-64 division in 2 hours and 42 minutes, while Abel finished 20th in the men’s 65-69 category in 2 hours and 57 minutes.

The former was also in Abu Dhabi to attend the World Triathlon Annual Congress, in his capacity as deputy chair of the tribunal of the triathlon world governing body.

Next up for Lipp and Abel will be the Maccabiah Pan American Games, to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from late December, 2023.
