16-year-old Rebecca Spence is shaping up to be one of NZ’s star triathletes. The Rangitoto College student won the elite junior title at the ITU Duathlon World Championships in Newcastle, Australia, just two weeks after claiming silver at the Triathlon World Champs in Japan. “It’s been a dream month for me for sure,” said Spence. “It’s really special.” NZ won 11 medals, 4 of them gold, in Newcastle.
