2012 Mooloolaba Triathlon Photos

Hi all

Last weekend I enjoyed attending the 2012 Mooloolaba Triathlon Festival, which included the main Sunday morning event, the 2012 Mooloolaba Triathlon. Weather permitting, the Swim Leg is in the Coral Sea, so I always find photographing the exit of the swim leg through the surf to be plenty of fun. Here are some pics:
