Annual Report 2009/2010
THE PATRON OF TRIATHLON AUSTRALIA
Mr Phil Coles
As Patron of Triathlon Australia I am thrilled to have witnessed the
outstanding development of the sport since its first Olympic recognition at the Sydney 2000 Games.
It was at a meeting with President Juan Antonio Samaranch in
Paris during the 1994 IOC Congress that he first expressed his
wish to add two new sports to the Sydney Games programme. He
asked for my thoughts on the matter and I immediately suggested
Triathlon and Taekwondo. I considered Taekwondo worthy of inclusion because of its long history and large participation base. On
the other hand I believed Triathlon to be a wonderful candidate as a new sport which
offered an excellent concept for exciting television coverage, with appeal to all age
groups. Happily President Samaranch agreed that these two sports would be the
perfect additions for Sydney 2000.
As my interest in triathlon grew I became more involved in promoting the sport,
serving for a number of years as Secretary General of the ITU.
In 2000 the Sydney Olympic Games Organising Committee scheduled Triathlon as
the first event on the programme. As a result the world was able to thrill to the
spectacle of great athletes competing in an exciting new event with the beautiful
backdrop of Sydney Harbor and the Opera House. What a wonderful showcase for
Triathlon‟s Olympic debut.
Since that time world Triathlon has gone from strength to strength and Triathlon
Australia has produced a steady stream of outstanding and competitive triathletes.
Triathlon Australia is to be congratulated for its outstanding achievements.
I am very proud to have played a part in Triathlon‟s developmental journey and am
extremely honoured to be recognized as the Patron of Triathlon Australia.

Annual Report 2009/2010
PRESIDENT‟S REVIEW
Mr Peter Hedge
Australians again dominated the world stage during this year and our congratulations go to Emma Moffatt who was crowned World Champion in the
Gold Coast as the Series winner of the ITU World Championship Series in
2009 and to Craig Alexander who was again crowned Ironman World Champion in Hawaii.
It was also my great pleasure to present the Australian Triathlete of the
Year Award to Craig Alexander at a ceremony in Mooloolaba earlier this
year.
The Triathlon Australia Hall of Fame was established during the year. The
inaugural inductees where Greg Welch, Michellie Jones and Miles Stewart.
These legends of our sport were deserving recipients of the inaugural awards.
Our country hosted the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships in all three
ITU disciplines towards the end of 2009. The Sprint and Olympic distance World Championships were held on the Gold Coast and the Long Distance World Championships were held in
Perth. The events were an outstanding success and a credit to the organisers and the athletes
who participated.
Our sport returned to the site of the Sydney Olympic Games triathlon event when in April this
year we hosted the inaugural round of the ITU World Championship Series in Sydney. The
Sydney event is now a permanent feature in the ITU World Championship Series and will be
the cornerstone event for a weekend of triathlon activity including an Olympic distant age
group event in the centre of the city of Sydney. Such an event would not have been possible
without the significant support from Events NSW and our event delivery partner for this Sydney event, USM Events. The significant contribution of this event to the profile of our sport
cannot be underestimated.
The 2010 World Championship Series will be decided at Budapest later this year and Australians are again lining up for the podium.
One of the most significant achievements this year for the future development of our sport was
the finalisation by the Board of the 2010 – 2015 strategic plan for Triathlon in Australia. This
strategic plan was the result of significant time and effort from the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) working collaboratively with the volunteer and executive resources from amongst
our State and National associations. The document is available for all members to view on our
website. I commend this document to you as it serves as a guiding principle for our sport at
every level to align our interests and focus our energy to achieve a common goal.
The inaugural whole-of-sport conference titled “Share the Vision” in June 2010 has been hailed
by attendees as a watershed event aimed at bringing all the relevant stakeholders of our sport
together to share the vision outlined by the strategic plan, and to start working together to
ensure our sport develops for the benefit of all members.
As with all good strategic plans the ability to execute requires the appropriate structure and
resourcing to be established and this has been a priority of the current Board during its first
term in office.
A number of new subcommittees were formed and new blood introduced to existing committees. As a sport we are indeed indebted to those dedicated individuals who tirelessly support
these committees.
Our deepest appreciation to Frank Stapleton and those from his National Technical Committee
6
Annual Report 2009/2010
who retired at the end of the financial year and congratulations to Jacqui Kenny and her newly
appointed team who took office as our new National Technical Committee at the end of June.
For the first time in many years a National Calendar Committee was formed and achieved the
objective of publishing a national calendar by the end of June this year. This committee will be
continuing to develop initiatives to manage and communicate this most important tool to our
members. Tony Newham as the inaugural Chairman and his team are to be congratulated on
their achievements.
Basic governance initiatives have also been a priority for the current Board. The newly formed
Finance and Audit Committee chaired by David Ferrier has achieved extraordinary results in
completing last year‟s accounts during the year and subsequently finalising the June 2010 audited financial statements attached with this Annual Report. Our sincere appreciation to David
Ferrier for his work in this area.
A significant project born out of our clearly defined strategic objectives has been a whole-ofsport IT/web database project. David Hislop initiated this project and as our inaugural Chair
formed a committee to develop our needs and specifications. Luke Littler, the current President of BRATS Triathlon Club, stepped up to the mark as work commitments took David away
from us and has continued to lead an outstanding group of individuals from across all States in
the development of this project . With National and State co-operation it is anticipated this
project will be completed during the forthcoming year. I am excited at the significant benefits
and opportunities this project presents for our sport and to each of us as individual members.
The executive resources within our national office have undertaken significant change during
the year. We have seen the departure of Andrew Hamilton after five years in the role together
with Karen Higgs, Jerry Wiltshire and Katrina Brown from the office. Our sincere appreciation
is extended to each of these individuals for the time and effort they have committed to the
development of our sport during their time with the Association.
A number of significant appointments have been made within our executive ranks. It is with
extreme delight that the Board was able to secure the appointment of Anne Gripper as the National Chief Executive Officer of our National Federation. Anne‟s appointment followed an executive search process which presented to the Board Selection Committee an outstanding
short-list of candidates. Having recently returned from a senior role with the International Cycling Union in Lausanne, Anne commences in her new role with Triathlon Australia in the middle of September 2010 and will bring an unprecedented level of experience to this vital role
within our organisation.
Pending the appointment of our new CEO, Alexandra Fehon assumed the role of our Senior
Executive Officer since March 2010. We are all deeply appreciative to Alex for stepping into
this role. Alex has done an extraordinary job with the assistance of all executive officers from
each State association and with the support and guidance of many National and State Board
members.
As the National sporting federation for Triathlon, we are privileged to be associated with the
Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) and to receive support for our high performance athletes
from the ASC, incorporating the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). During the year the Crawford Report was a significant document addressing the issue of government funding for high
performance and development programs for sports within Australia. Through submissions by
the AOC and many other important national sporting bodies an outcome was achieved for
sports in Australia such as triathlon which is positive compared with the initial Crawford recommendations. As a National sport, we are grateful to all those who engaged in the debate and it
is at times like this that you realise the importance to us as Triathletes of being part of a
strong Association with direct links to the AOC and ASC.
There was much speculation and discussion amongst triathletes surrounding the decision by
the newly appointed Board not to proceed with the scheduled 2010 Challenge Series. It was of
course the only financially responsible course of action at the time.
7
Annual Report 2009/2010
The continuation of our Australian championship events however remained paramount. Our
thanks and congratulations go to all those event organisers who partnered with our National
and State Associations during the year to host Australian championship events and to ensure
the pathways for our athletes to be recognised at a national level and represent Australia on
the world stage were maintained.
Vibrant relevant Australian championship events are so important to our sport for many reasons. This includes the creation of opportunities for our high performance athletes to hone
their skills in a competitive environment worthy of their participation. Furthermore the opportunity to enable our age-group athletes to participate in world-class events and provide opportunities to qualify to represent their country at world championship level is of great importance.
As a National association, the desire to develop a sustainable world-class national series has
remained on the Board agenda during this year. I am excited to confirm that arrangements
are currently being finalised to deliver a national series incorporating guaranteed prize money
for our professional athletes and television coverage for the event, two important criteria to
continue the development of our sport within the country at the highest level. The announcement of these races will be made during the forthcoming year and with the ongoing collaboration of the National and State associations I envisage the racing and triathlon opportunities will
continue to develop and evolve in line with our whole-of-sport strategy.
We continue to conduct an outstanding high performance and athlete development program
under the guidance of our Director of High Performance, Michael Flynn and our National Talent
and Development Manager Craig Redman. This is an area that the Board has identified as
having a great deal of potential for our sport. New partners and additional support from the
ASC should realise opportunities to develop the “pathway to podium” concept within our sport.
With the lead up to London 2012 and the announcement of the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016,
planning is well underway to identify and develop our next generation of medallists on the
Olympic podium.
In addition to our Olympic pathways one of the attractive features of our sport is its diversity.
From events aimed at promoting community health and wellbeing amongst our youth, sponsored by such organisations as Sanitarium, through to the ironman events now being developed by event organiser, WTC, our National, State and Club associations all play an important
role in ensuring the safety and fairness of such events for all our member participants.
Our sport only thrives through the many volunteers and executives who promote and support
the ideals and objectives of our Triathlon associations across the country. From those who rise
at 4am to ensure a safe and fair competition for their fellow members, to those who work in
the back office lobbying government and council authorities to allow us to use public roads and
facilities to enjoy our sport I extend our thanks and sincere appreciation on behalf of all Triathletes.
If we wish to have a strong and effective Triathlon Association in Australia which represents
our needs and warrants the attention and support from our community then we all must form
a cohesive and inclusive National Triathlon Association and be committed to supporting our
Association, unconditionally.
Finally, I wish to acknowledge and sincerely thank the Directors and staff of our National and
State Associations, and our affiliated Club committees, for their commitment and efforts during
the year and to everyone for sharing the vision for our sport of Triathlon in Australia.

Annual Report 2009/2010
MESSAGE FROM THE AUSTRALIAN SPORTS
COMMISSION
The Hon. Warwick Smith AM, Chairman
Board of the Australian Sports Commission
It is an honour to serve as the new Chair of the Australian Sports
Commission (ASC) Board at this challenging and exciting period for
our national sporting system.
The ASC and national sporting organisations (NSOs) have long spoken of a shared ambition to strengthen relationships between all
system partners involved in Australian sport.
Aligned with this ambition, the Australian Government is now encouraging a whole-of-sport reform agenda, aimed at establishing a
more collaborative, efficient and integrated sports system.
Through new direction for sport „Australian Sport: the Pathway to Success‟, the ASC
will work closely with sport to achieve its main objectives; boost sports participation
and strengthen sporting pathways while striving for international success.
The reform agenda seeks for the ASC to assist to provide stability and support for all
sporting organisations in their pursuit of a shared, common purpose; creating a better sporting pathway for all Australians, from the grassroots up.
The ASC will implement the new direction, and this includes collaboration with all
NSOs to allocate a record amount of new sports funding – committing an extra $195
million over the next four years.
This funding is in addition to the current ongoing baseline funding for NSOs. Also, the
ASC will assist sporting organisations with access to coaching and officiating programs, governance support, planning and education opportunities and assistance
with becoming more inclusive – particularly in the areas of Indigenous sport, sport
for people with a disability, sport for people from culturally and linguistically diverse
backgrounds and women‟s sport development programs.
This is the first time key sport partners, such as state and territory institutes and
academies of sport and state and territory departments of sport and recreation, have
collaborated on a Commonwealth funding decision in the interests of Australia's
sporting future.
This is an exciting time for all of us involved in Australian sport. With significant new
funding from the Australian Government, sports will be better positioned than ever
before to lead the drive for higher participation levels and strong success on the
sporting field by promoting the unique nature of their sport, creating a legacy and a
lasting impression for communities across the country.
The ASC will continue to work with all NSOs, the state and territory institutes and
academies of sport and state and territory departments of sport and recreation, reinvigorating access to, and participation in, sport across the community and driving
Australia‟s continued sporting success.

Annual Report 2009/2010
NATIONAL DUATHLON SERIES REPORT
Duathlon has played a minor role in our sport in Australia,
yet remarkably Australian athletes have performed very
well on the International Duathlon scene, often self
funded. The Australian medal tally at past World Duathlon
Championships was impressive, with 7 individual Elite Gold
medals, 4 Silver medals and 4 Bronze medals.
The Australian Duathlon Series aims to create an Australian wide competition that provides opportunity for Duathlon competitors to travel
and experience events in each state.
The Series combines a number of the larger
Duathlon events together into one single
competition. Much like the ITU Duathlon
Series, this Series gives competitors the
opportunity to compete together across
many different locations around the country. As no two events are the same in any
state, competitors are treated to a wide
variety of courses and conditions throughout the series.
While the Australian Duathlon Series is still running with 4 events left to go, there
has been a lot of interest in the Series by both competitors and locals alike. A lot of
positive feedback has also been received from completed events due to the quality of
event conditions and the high level of competition in no small part due to some big
names taking part in some of the events.
Race reports from the Gatton Grunt, TriNSW Duathlon and the Barossa Duathlon all
had a common theme to them; each provided an excellent course and the majority of
competitors had a great day out with elite Duathletes like Raf Baugh looking forward
to the events next season.
In 2011, the Series can only get bigger after the
amount of feedback by people involved, especially those who were interested in what other
events are on the calendar during the year.

ITU TRIATHLON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
SERIES GRAND FINAL, GOLD COAST
GOLD COAST SHINES IN WORLD SERIES GRAND FINALE
The eyes of the triathlon world focused on Australia in September when
the first ever grand final of the inaugural Dextro Energy Triathlon – ITU
World Championship Series was held
on the Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast proved to be a highly
desirable destination for international
athletes, securing a record Australian
age group team of 1,100 athletes
managed by Triathlon Australia. Perfect weather and a fast course saw outstanding
racing across all categories, with Australia collecting a number of age group medals,
and Emma Moffatt being crowned female Champion.
As the contracted event organiser, USM Events illustrated their scope and expertise
in delivering an entire multisport festival, enhancing Australia‟s reputation for hosting
world-class sporting events.
The opening ceremony and parade was attended by all 42 countries participating and
around 3,000, during which Emma Moffatt and Brad Kahlefeldt took the oath on behalf of all the Australian athletes. Welcoming speeches were made by Marisol Casado,
the President of the International Triathlon Union and Garth Prowd, the Event Chairman. In closing, the New Zealand men‟s team treated the crowds to a traditional
Haka. An ITU reception on race eve, featuring a welcome by Ron Clarke, Mayor of the
Gold Coast City Council, also hosted the sport‟s dignitaries and major partners.
The Australian team dinner in the giant on-site marquee incorporated Triathlon Australia‟s inaugural inductees into the Triathlon Australia Hall of Fame, with Greg Welch,
Michellie Jones and Miles Stewart duly recognised as champions of our sport.
We thank all those involved in this memorable event, including sponsors and exhibitors, caterers and competitors, the Australian team support staff at both elite and
age group level, and the hundreds of officials and volunteers.

ITU LONG DISTANCE TRIATHLON WORLD
CHAMPIONSHIPS, PERTH
GOING THE DISTANCE IN PERTH
Australia‟s rich tradition of hosting world championships continued when the 2009
ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships were held in Perth on October 25.
To put on a long course race in the middle of a capital city was quite an achievement
and one which required much planning and cooperation from Government and event
partners. Eventscorp, the tourism arm of the WA Government, were the major event
partner, providing an attractive event-specific website, branding requirements and
logistical support. Triathlon Australia, as event host, sub-contracted the operational
component to Tri Events who implemented a safe and visually spectacular course.
Langley Park, with its flat and scenic green space, proved a wonderful race site, enjoyed by locals but especially appreciated by the large international contingent. Support events in the form of an aquathlon, schools‟ event and sprint distance triathlon
added to the atmosphere and ensured the Village Expo was well attended.
An official on-site welcome and showcase of nations was well received by competitors, as was a sell-out closing ceremony that included an Aboriginal dance troupe.
More than 750 competitors from around the world took part in the long course event,
which was in line with projected numbers. They completed a 3km swim, 80km ride
and 20km run in and around the picturesque Swan River and surrounding roads and
parklands.
Reigning World Ironman champion Craig Alexander was the event ambassador and
proved to be a true professional and immensely popular figure in completing numerous speaking engagements, promotions and media commitments over the course of
the weekend.

ITU TRIATHLON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
SERIES, SYDNEY
SYDNEY WORLD SERIES OPENER A HIGHLIGHT
Australia hosted one of the
premier triathlon events in
the world when the opening
round of the Dextro Energy
Triathlon – ITU World Championship Series took place
on the steps of the Sydney
Opera House on April 10.
The ITU utilised Sydney as
the perfect place to launch
the 2010 Dextro Energy Series. A group of the sport‟s
current stars joined ITU
President Marisol Casado and Olympic legend Edwin Moses - chairman of the ITU‟s
official charity, The Laureus Foundation - at a press conference overlooking Sydney
from the Intercontinental Hotel a few days prior to the event.
An official function hosting dignitaries and event partners at Government House on
the eve of the race afforded Triathlon Australia the opportunity to welcome guests,
launch the event and wish our elite competitors well.
Race day saw Sydney a solid spectator base, spectacular television coverage and
fast, exciting race. New Zealand veteran Kiwi Bevan Docherty and rising Chilean star
Barbara Riveros-Diaz were crowned the event‟s inaugural champions.
Only elite races were scheduled in this initial year. However, 2011 will see the introduction of age group races on what will surely be one of the most spectacular triathlon courses in the world, giving thousands of competitors the chance to ride over the
Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The race was the culmination of much behind-the-scenes work from Triathlon Australia, the International Triathlon Union and Events NSW, and USM Events and Triathlon
Australia looks forward to hosting this ground-breaking event for many years to
come.

COMMITTEE REPORTS
2010 Sydney ITU WCS Committee
“On behalf of the entire triathlon family, I’d like to say that we are thrilled to return to Sydney. On September 16, 2000, I saw hundreds of thousands of passionate fans line the streets
of Sydney to witness triathlon’s debut in the Olympic Games. Spurred on by the encouragement of the spectators, our top athletes showcased the true essence of triathlon – passion,
intensity and charisma – attributes that continue to add to the sports growing popularity.”
Marisol Casado: ITU President & IOC Member
Following a near ten year break of hosting triathlon, on April 9 2010, the Sydney Opera House
forecourt provided an absolutely stunning theatre for the series opener of the 2010 World
Championship Series. With the impressive backdrop of the Sydney Opera House, Harbour
Bridge and the city skyline, Sydney was the ideal venue to launch the 2010 season for the ITU.
So much so the arrangement between the ITU and Triathlon Australia was brokered in late
September 2009 in haste to commence proceedings along with strong support from Event
NSW.
Not since the 2000 Olympic Games has an Elite Olympic distance event of this magnitude been
staged. Certainly the pressure was on from September 2009 to commence planning and arrangements to execute an event of similar success. In all 17 government agencies required
engagement and approvals on the course that comprised of 2 x 750m laps in Farm Cove, 8 x
5km laps along Macquarie St, Cahil Exp and College St, and 4 x 2.5km laps of Macquarie St
and Cahil Exp.
During earlier phases the Triathlon Australia Board was very much conscious of conducting a
tendering process to determine and further a partnership in assisting Triathlon Australia with
managing the event based on having similar discussions with members during the 2009 AGM.
Via a process USM was appointed the Race Director to work with Triathlon Australia , the ITU,
Event NSW and respective agencies. Since their appointment in December 2009, USM had
conducted an immense amount of work under the circumstances. The success of the event
would not have been even half of what it was without the undertaking and support of USM.
Strong support was also delivered through Triathlon NSW in delivering a 200+ volunteer army,
and a lure of guaranteed entry to the 2011 Age Group event.
The diligence of the sub-committee and leadership provided by an impartial chairperson was
another important element in the delivery of the event. So much so the event budget produced
a surplus, produced a management plan that was executed ahead of schedule and delivered
infrastructure to suit the strict requirements expected of the ITU.
Further to the event and actual race day the sub-committee arranged press conferences and a
series launch announcement of a new partnership between the International Triathlon Union
and the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, the charitable arm of the charitable arm of the
Laureus World Sports Academy also attended by Laureus World Sports Academy Chairman
Edwin Moses. Customs House provided the Event Hub and central base for proceedings, race
briefings, media centre. A VIP function was also held at Government House for event sponsors,
Laureus members, elite athletes, officials, supporters and the opportunity to welcome triathlon
back to its rightful home – Sydney.
The Sydney race was broadcast live and aired worldwide in more than 100 countries on five
different continents. Live streaming via the ITU website also provided coverage to an extended
audience that viewed the sunny skies and near perfect conditions on the day.

Annual Report 2009/2010

IT/Database Working Committee
Mission Statement
“To implement an IT Infrastructure solution for the overall benefit of Triathlon in Australia”
Project Committee
The IT Services Committee has been designed and selected specifically by Triathlon Australia
Board to govern a project that will upgrade the IT and Database systems currently used. It has
been recognised that the current systems fall short of many requirements, and therefore need
to be re-developed on a national scale to improve their efficiency and functional capabilities.
The project aims to source and implement a new IT infrastructure system. The committee has
identified the 5 key functional areas that must be addresses by this project;





Membership Database
Website
Event Registration
E-Commerce
Data Storage
The committee is comprised of a cross section of individuals representing various areas of Triathlon in Australia to ensure a fair representation for as many key stakeholders as logistically
possible.
It is critical to note that everyone on the committee is not only representing their areas, but
more importantly is responsible for ensuring that every aspect of this project is undertaken
with the focus of – “Is it in the best interest of Triathlon in Australia”.
Project Status
The committee has so far convened various ‟workshops‟, discussing best practise processes,
functional requirements, business rules, and the tender proposal evaluation process.
A tender process has been undertaken by the committee and the proposals are currently being
evaluated.
Based on the evaluations and the presentations, the committee will then make their recommendations to the Board of Triathlon Australia with their proposed solution.
Following approval by the Board to proceed, the committee will produce a communication, implementation and training strategy and will work with the chosen vendor./vendors with the aim
of going live with a new database and website solution next year.

2009/2010 High Performance Athlete Selection
Committee
The Triathlon Australia/Australian Institute of Sport (TA/AIS) High Performance program made
many significant changes in the 2009/2010 year. After the success of the 2008 Beijing Olympic
Games and with a new direction and structure for both the ITU and Triathlon Australia, there
was real need to review the TA/AIS program moving forward.
With the ITU changing the International racing calendar and introducing an ITU World Championship Series to replace the traditional single World Championships, the period was definitely a
time of adjustment and change. Athletes and coaches would need to adjust to the concept of
preparing for a consistent performance throughout all key ITU races in each year but still very
much capable of winning the event as identified as the years ITU biggest race, the ITU World
Championship Series final.
A key factor in ensuring that we kept ahead of our opposition was the TA/AIS HP leadership
group defining the program vision, philosophy and key performance indicators. Then it was far
easier to ensure that the key people were put in place for the specific roles in the areas of
identification, development and performance of athletes and coaches. This concept would allow
athletes, coaches and key staff to look at the plans of all athletes so to ensure that the changing environment of international competition was at the focus of the elite end.
Program Vision
“To further develop a sustainable high performance culture and environment that provides
Australian triathletes and coaches with the opportunity to be continuously successful at major
ITU international competitions from 2010 and beyond.”
Program Philosophy
“To ensure that the critical elements of the Triathlon Australia High Performance program are
athlete focused, coach driven and based on service support with a key focus on performance,
continuous improvement, innovation and urgency.”
Program Target
“To qualify three male and three female athletes that are capable of winning the 2012 London
Olympic Games triathlon event.”
Program Key Performance Indicators
“To win two GOLD medals at the 2012 London Olympic Games.”
In addition to those 4 year objectives, annual targets were set with those being: to win a
medal in each female and male event at every ITU World Championship through the 2009 to
2012 period. In addition to this the AIS and SIS/SAS programs each have specific KPI‟s that
are agreed on at the beginning of each year.
Key results for 2009
Emma Moffatt
 2009 ITU Elite Woman World Champion and winner of the ITU WCS series final on the
Gold Coast.
 Winner of 4 other ITU WCS and WC races in 2009 and placed 2nd in 2 other ITU WCS

Emma Moffatt and Emma Snowsill during the 2009 ITU season.
Performance
The TA High Performance team set high standards for athletes for the ITU 2009/2010 season
and used this level as guide when looking at athletes for nomination in the AIS and SIS/SAS
for 2010. These standards include a tier 1 expectation of a top 5 finish in the ITU WCS and
selected ITU WC races of the required quality. The tier 2 level for the first year would be athletes capable of helping to achieve the 4 year objectives of the TA/AIS HP program. So for the
ITU 2009 competition season Australia had 2 males and 3 females who were good enough get
these results. These athletes were:
Emma Moffatt
Courtney Atkinson
Emma Snowsill
Brad Kahlefeldt
Annabelle Luxford
On the domestic scene the younger athletes were based in their home environments being
supported by either Head or assistant coaches. These athletes had been focussing on the ITU
Asian circuit and basing themselves in Europe, allowing them to accumulate ITU ranking
points.
The next group of athletes and coaches to leave the shores during 2009 were the athletes selected for the TA Young Guns tour, based in Varese, Italy at the AIS European training centre.
This was key for young athletes in preparing them for the life of the professional triathlete and
that was
Improvement
Triathlon Australia continues to work with the three SIS/SAS programs and each of the SSO
development programs to ensure that the long term goals of each program are realistic and
that each of the programs fits into the National athlete and coach pathway. The improvement
needs to be based on the International performance standards as recognised by what is required to win at the key events within the ITU calendar.

Annual Report 2009/2010
National Calendar Committee
The board of Triathlon Australia recognised that there would be significant benefits in bringing
key people within the sport together for the purpose of developing an annual national event
calendar. For the first time in the 2009/2010 year, a National Calendar Committee was established. The key benefit of the committee is to provide the opportunity to reduce the incidences
of major races accruing on the same weekends, as well as coordination all State race calendars. Additional benefits would be gained by providing a process for discussion of broader issues affecting the sport.
National Calendar Committee in 2010
The objective of the calendar committee is to publish on the Triathlon Australia website a calendar of triathlons scheduled for the coming season by 30 June each year. In 2010 this objective was met for the first time with success, providing an additional service to Triathlon Australia members. This avoided any clashes of major races, and ensured that there are no major
races scheduled for the same weekend in the 2010/11 season.
National Calendar Committee in the Future
While continuing to meet the objective of the committee in the future, there is the opportunity
for the committee to add greater value to the triathlon community by providing a forum for
those putting on races to interact and share knowledge. In the future the committee will take
on the responsibility of providing this forum.
National Technical Committee
The National Technical Committee is appointed by the Board from 1 July to the 30 June each
year. The committee is empowered to maintain and recommend changes, where appropriate,
to the Race Competition Rules (RCR), sanction documents and all related technical processes;
to develop and maintain currency of technical official training programs across all levels to be
used by each STTA; and ensure that the Race Competition Rules are applied consistently at all
events.
National Officiating Accreditation Scheme Accreditation of the L1 and L2 Technical
Officials Programmes
The National Officiating Accreditation Scheme (NOAS) was established in January 1994 to assist national sporting organisations develop a group of skilled officials. While there is no formal
levels structure for the NOAS, a General Principles Training program is available for use by
NSOs. The NOAS aims to develop and implement programs which will improve the quality,
quantity, leadership and status of sports officiating in Australia. Extensive work by the Director
of Officials and National Technical Committee members has resulted in the accreditation and
ongoing delivery of NOAS L1 and L2 programmes throughout Australia. Level 3 and NTO are
to be completed by the end of the 2010-2011 season.
NOAS training programs include the following components:
 General Principles – fundamentals of officiating and event management
 Sport Specific – technical rules, interpretations, reporting and sport specific roles for officials
 Officiating Practice – practical officiating and application of officiating principles.

Notes to the Financial Statements
For the Year Ended 30 June 2010

Statement of Significant Accounting Policies
(a)
General information
The financial statements are general purpose financial statements that have been prepared in
accordance with Accounting Standards (including Australian Accounting Interpretations) and the
Corporations Act 2001.
Australian Accounting Standards set out accounting policies that the AASB has concluded would
result in financial statements containing relevant and reliable information about transactions, events
and conditions. Material accounting policies adopted in the preparation of these financial statements
are presented below and have been consistently applied unless otherwise stated.
The financial statements cover the economic entity of Triathlon Australia Limited as an individual
parent entity and Triathlon Australia Limited and the controlled entity as an economic entity.
Triathlon Australia Limited is a Group limited by shares, incorporated and domiciled in Australia.
The following is a summary of the material accounting policies adopted by the Group in the
preparation of the financial report. The accounting policies have been consistently applied, unless
otherwise stated.
(b)
Basis of Preparation
Reporting Basis and Conventions
The financial statements have been prepared on an accruals basis and are based on historical costs,
modified, where applicable, by the measurement at fair value of selected non-current assets,
financial assets and financial liabilities.
(c)
Comparative Figures
Where required by accounting standards comparative figures have been adjusted to conform with
changes in presentation for the current financial year.
(d)
Inventories
Inventories are measured at the lower of cost and current replacement cost. Inventories acquired at
no cost, or for nominal consideration are valued at the current replacement cost as at the date of
acquisition.
(e)
Property, Plant and Equipment
Each class of property, plant and equipment is carried at cost or fair values as indicated, less, where
applicable, accumulated depreciation and impairment losses.
Triathlon Australia Limited
ABN 67 007 356 907
Notes to the Financial Statements
For the Year Ended 30 June 2010
Plant and equipment
Plant and equipment are measured on the cost basis less depreciation and impairment losses.
The carrying amount of plant and equipment is reviewed annually by directors to ensure it is not in
excess of the recoverable amount from these assets. The recoverable amount is assessed on the
basis of the expected net cash flows that will be received from the asset’s employment and
subsequent disposal. The expected net cash flows have been discounted to their present values in
determining recoverable amounts.
Depreciation
The depreciable amount of all fixed assets, excluding freehold land, is depreciated on a straight-line
basis over the asset’s useful life to the Group commencing from the time the asset is held ready for
use.
The depreciation rates used for each class of depreciable assets are:
Class of Fixed Asset
Plant and equipment
Depreciation Rate
10 – 40%
The assets' residual values and useful lives are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at the end of
each reporting period.
Asset classes carrying amount is written down immediately to its recoverable amount if the asset’s
carrying amount is greater than its estimated recoverable amount.
Gains and losses on disposals are determined by comparing proceeds with the carrying amount.
These gains or losses are included in the statement of comprehensive income. When revalued
assets are sold, amounts included in the revaluation reserve relating to that asset are transferred to
retained earnings.
(f)
Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand, deposits held at call with banks, other short-term
highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less, and bank overdrafts. Bank
overdrafts are shown within short-term borrowings in current liabilities on the statement of financial
position.
(g)
Employee Benefits
Provision is made for the Group's liability for employee benefits arising from services rendered by
employees to the end of the reporting period. Employee benefits that are expected to be settled
within one year have been measured at the amounts expected to be paid when the liability is settled,
plus related on-costs. Employee benefits payable later than one year have been measured at
present value of the estimated future cash outflows to be made for those benefits. In determining the
liability, consideration is given to employee wage increases and the probability that the employee
may not satisfy vesting requirements. Those cash outflows are discounted using market yields on
national government bonds with terms to maturity that match the expected timing of cash flows.
Triathlon Australia Limited
ABN 67 007 356 907
Notes to the Financial Statements
For the Year Ended 30 June 2010
Contributions are made by the entity to an employee superannuation fund and are charged as
expenses when incurred.
(h)
Financial Instruments
Initial recognition and measurement
Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised when the entity becomes a party to the
contractual provisions of the instrument. For financial assets, this is equivalent to the date that the
entity commits itself to either purchase or sell the asset (i.e. trade date accounting is adopted)..
Financial instruments are initially measured at fair value plus transactions costs except where the
instrument is classified ‘at fair value through profit or loss’ in which case transaction costs are
expensed to profit or loss immediately. Financial instruments are classified and measured as set out
below.
Derecognition
Financial assets are derecognised where the contractual rights to receipt of cash flows expires or the
asset is transferred to another party whereby the entity no longer has any significant continuing
involvement in the risks and benefits associated with the asset. Financial liabilities are derecognised
where the related obligations are either discharged, cancelled or expire. The difference between the
carrying value of the financial liability, which is extinguished or transferred to another party and the fair
value of consideration paid, including the transfer of non-cash assets or liabilities assumed is
recognised in profit or loss.
Classification and subsequent measurement
Finance instruments are subsequently measured at either fair value, amortised cost using the effective
interest rate method, or cost. Fair value represents the amount for which an asset could be exchanged
or a liability settled, between knowledgeable, willing parties. Where available, quoted prices in an
active market are used to determine fair value. In other circumstances, valuation techniques are
adopted.
(i) Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss
Financial assets are classified at ‘fair value through profit or loss’ when they are held for trading for
the purpose of short term profit taking, or where they are derivatives not held for hedging purposes,
or when they are designated as such to avoid an accounting mismatch or to enable performance
evaluation where a group of financial assets is managed by key management personnel on a fair
value basis in accordance with a documented risk management or investment strategy. Such assets
are subsequently measured at fair value with changes in carrying value being included in profit or
loss.
(ii) Loans and receivables
Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that
are not quoted in an active market and are subsequently measured at amortised cost. Loans and
receivables are included in current assets, except for those which are not expected to mature within
12 months after the end of the reporting period, which are classified as non-current assets.
(iii) Held-to-maturity investments
Triathlon Australia Limited
ABN 67 007 356 907
Notes to the Financial Statements
For the Year Ended 30 June 2010
Held-to-maturity investments are non-derivative financial assets that have fixed maturities and fixed
or determinable payments, and it is the entity’s intention to hold these investments to maturity. They
are subsequently measured at amortised cost. Held to maturity investments are included in noncurrent assets, except for those which are not expected to mature within 12 months within 12 months
after the end of the reporting period, If during the period the company sold or reclassified more than an
insignificant amount of the held-to-maturity investments before maturity, the entire held-to-maturity investment
would be tainted and reclassified as available-for-sale.
(iv) Available-for-sale financial assets
Available-for-sale financial assets are non-derivative financial assets that are either not capable of
being classified into other categories of financial assets due to their nature, or they are designated as
such by management. They comprise investments in the equity of other entities where there is
neither a fixed maturity nor fixed or determinable payments. Available-for-sale financial assets are
included in non-current assets, except for those which are expected to be disposed of within 12 months after the
end of the reporting period.
(v) Financial liabilities
Non-derivative financial liabilities (excluding financial guarantees) are subsequently measured at
amortised cost.
Fair value
Fair value is determined based on current bid prices for all quoted investments. Valuation techniques
are applied to determine the fair value for all unlisted securities, including recent arm’s length
transactions, reference to similar instruments and option pricing models.
Impairment
At the end of each reporting period, the entity assesses whether there is objective evidence that a
financial instrument has been impaired. In the case of available-for-sale financial instruments, a
prolonged decline in the value of the instrument is considered to determine whether an impairment
has arisen. Impairment losses are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income.
(i)
Provisions
Provisions are recognised when the group has a legal or constructive obligation, as a result of past
events, for which it is probable that an outflow of economic benefits will result and that outflow can be
reliably measured. Provisions recognised represent the best estimate of the amounts required to
settle the obligation at the end of the reporting period.
(j)
Contributions
Triathlon Australia Limited receives non-reciprocal contributions from the government and other
parties for no or a nominal value. These contributions are recognised at the fair value on the date of
acquisition upon which time an asset is taken up in the balance sheet and revenue in the income
statement.
(k)
Revenue
Revenue from the sale of goods is recognised upon the delivery of goods to customers.
Triathlon Australia Limited
ABN 67 007 356 907
Notes to the Financial Statements
For the Year Ended 30 June 2010
Grant revenue is recognised in the statement of comprehensive income when the entity obtains
control of the grant and it is probable that the economic benefits gained from the grant will flow to the
entity and the amount of the grant can be measured reliably.
If conditions are attached to the grant which must be satisfied before it is eligible to receive the
contribution, the recognition of the grant as revenue will be deferred until those conditions are
satisfied.
When grant revenue is received whereby the entity incurs an obligation to deliver economic value
directly back to the contributor, this is considered a reciprocal transaction and the grant revenue is
recognised in the statement of financial position as a liability until the service has been delivered to
the contributor, otherwise the grant is recognised as income on receipt.
Interest revenue is recognised using the effective interest rate method, which for floating rate
financial assets is the rate inherent in the instrument.
Revenue from the rendering of services is recognised upon the delivery of the service to the
customers.
(l)
Intangibles
Software
Software is recorded at cost. Software has a finite life and is carried at cost less any accumulated
amortisation and impairment losses. It has an estimated useful life of between one and two years. It
is assessed annually for impairment.
(m)
Economic Dependence
Triathlon Australia Limited is dependent on the Australian Sports Commission for the majority of its
revenue used to operate the business. At the date of this report the Board of Directors has no reason
to believe the Australian Sports Commission will not continue to support Triathlon Australia Limited.
(n)
Goods and Services Tax (GST)
Revenues, expenses and assets are recognised net of the amount of GST, except where the amount
of GST incurred is not recoverable from the Australian Taxation Office. In these circumstances the
GST is recognised as part of the cost of acquisition of the asset or as part of an item of the expense.
Receivables and payables in the statement of financial position are shown inclusive of GST.
Cash flows are presented in the cash flow statement on a gross basis, except for the GST
component of investing and financing activities, which are disclosed as operating cash flows.
(o)
Rounding of Amounts
The Group has applied the relief available to it under ASIC Class Order 98/100 and accordingly,
amounts in the financial report and directors' report have been rounded off to the nearest $1.
Triathlon Australia Limited
ABN 67 007 356 907
Notes to the Financial Statements
For the Year Ended 30 June 2010
(p)
Impairment of Assets
At each reporting date, the Group reviews the carrying values of its tangible and intangible assets to
determine whether there is any indication that those assets have been impaired. If such an indication
exists, the recoverable amount of the asset, being the higher of the asset's fair value less costs to sell
and value in use, is compared to the asset's carrying value. Any excess of the asset's carrying value
over its recoverable amount is expensed to the statement of comprehensive income.
Where the future economic benefits of the asset are not primarily dependent upon the asset’s ability
to generate net cash inflows and when the entity would, if deprived of the asset, replace its remaining
future economic benefits, value in use is determined as the depreciated replacement cost of an
asset.
Where it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an assets class, the entity estimates
the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit to which the class of assets belong
Where an impairment loss on a revalued asset is identified, this is debited against the revaluation
reserve in respect of the same class of asset to the extent that the impairment loss does not exceed
the amount in the revaluation surplus for that same class of asset.
(q)
Classification of leases in financial statements of lessees
Leases of fixed assets, where substantially all the benefits and risks incidental to the ownership of
the asset , but not the legal ownership, are transferred to the entity are classified as finance leases.
Finance leases are capitalised, recording an asset and a liability equal to the present value of the
minimum lease payments, including any residual values. Leased assets are depreciated on a
straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives where it is likely that the entity will obtain
ownership of the asset. Lease payments are allocated between the reduction of the lease liability
and the lease interest expense for the period.
Lease payments for operating leases, where substantially all of the risks and benefits remain with the
lessor, are charged as expenses on a straight-line basis over the lease term.
(r)
Critical accounting estimates and judgments
The directors evaluate estimates and judgments incorporated into the financial statements based on
historical knowledge and best available current information. Estimates assume a reasonable
expectation of future events and are based on current trends and economic data, obtained both
externally and within the group.
Key Estimates
Impairment
The group assesses impairment at each reporting date by evaluation of conditions and events
specific to the group that may be indicative of impairment triggers. Recoverable amounts of relevant
assets are reassessed using value-in-use calculations which incorporate various key assumptions.
(s)
Income Tax
No provision for income tax has been raised as the entity is exempt from income tax under Division
50 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.

Adoption of New and Revised Accounting Standards
During the current year the company adopted all of the new and revised Australian Accounting Standards and
Interpretations applicable to its operations which became mandatory.
The adoption of these standards has impacted the recognition, measurement and disclosure of certain
transactions. The following is an explanation of the impact the adoption of these standards and interpretations
has had on the financial statements of [insert company name] Not For Profit (Reporting) Limited.
AASB 101: Presentation of Financial Statements
In September 2007 the Australian Accounting Standards Board revised AASB 101 and as a result, there have
been changes to the presentation and disclosure of certain information within the financial statements. Below is
an overview of the key changes and the impact on the company’s financial statements.
Disclosure impact
Terminology changes — The revised version of AASB 101 contains a number of terminology changes, including
the amendment of the names of the primary financial statements.
Reporting changes in equity — The revised AASB 101 requires all changes in equity arising from transactions
with owners, in their capacity as owners, to be presented separately from non-owner changes in equity. Owner
changes in equity are to be presented in the statement of changes in equity, with non-owner changes in equity
presented in the statement of comprehensive income. The previous version of AASB 101 required that owner
changes in equity and other comprehensive income be presented in the statement of changes in equity.
Statement of comprehensive income — The revised AASB 101 requires all income and expenses to be
presented in either one statement, the statement of comprehensive income, or two statements, a separate
income statement and a statement of comprehensive income. The previous version of AASB 101 required only
the presentation of a single income statement.
The company’s financial statements now contain a statement of comprehensive income.
Other comprehensive income — The revised version of AASB 101 introduces the concept of ‘other
comprehensive income’ which comprises of income and expenses that are not recognised in profit or loss as
required by other Australian Accounting Standards. Items of other comprehensive income are to be disclosed in
the statement of comprehensive income. Entities are required to disclose the income tax relating to each
component of other comprehensive income. The previous version of AASB 101 did not contain an equivalent
concept.
(u)
New Accounting Standards for Application in Future Periods
The AASB has issued new and amended accounting standards and interpretations that have mandatory
application dates for future reporting periods. The company has decided against early adoption of these
standards. A discussion of those future requirements and their impact on the company follows:

from AASB 9 [AASB 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 101, 102, 108, 112, 118, 121, 127, 128, 131, 132, 136, 139, 1023 & 1038 and
Interpretations 10 & 12] (applicable for annual reporting periods commencing on or after 1 January 2013).

assets. The company has not yet determined any potential impact on the financial statements.
The changes made to accounting requirements include:

simplifying the classifications of financial assets into those carried at amortised cost and those carried at
fair value;

simplifying the requirements for embedded derivatives;
•
removing the tainting rules associated with held-to-maturity assets;
Triathlon Australia Limited

Notes to the Financial Statements
For the Year Ended 30 June 2010
•
•
removing the requirements to separate and fair value embedded derivatives for financial assets carried
at amortised cost;
•
allowing an irrevocable election on initial recognition to present gains and losses on investments in
equity instruments that are not held for trading in other comprehensive income. Dividends in respect of
these investments that are a return on investment can be recognised in profit or loss and there is no
impairment or recycling on disposal of the instrument;
•
requiring financial assets to be reclassified where there is a change in an entity’s business model as
they are initially classified based on (a) the objective of the entity’s business model for managing the
financial assets; and (b) the characteristics of the contractual cash flows.
AASB 124: Related Party Disclosures (applicable for annual reporting periods commencing on or after 1
January 2011).
This standard removes the requirement for government related entities to disclose details of all transactions
with the government and other government-related entities and clarifies the definition of a related party to
remove inconsistencies and simplify the structure of the standard. No changes are expected to materially
affect the company.
•
AASB 2009–4: Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards arising from the Annual Improvements
Project [AASB 2 and AASB 138 and AASB Interpretations 9 & 16] (applicable for annual reporting periods
commencing from 1 July 2009) and AASB 2009–5: Further Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards
arising from the Annual Improvements Project [AASB 5, 8, 101, 107, 117, 118, 136 & 139] (applicable for
annual reporting periods commencing from 1 January 2010).
These standards detail numerous non-urgent but necessary changes to accounting standards arising from the
IASB’s annual improvements project. No changes are expected to materially affect the company.
•
AASB 2009–8: Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards — Group Cash-settled Share-based
Payment Transactions [AASB 2] (applicable for annual reporting periods commencing on or after 1 January
2010).
These amendments clarify the accounting for group cash-settled share-based payment transactions in the
separate or individual financial statements of the entity receiving the goods or services when the entity has no
obligation to settle the share-based payment transaction. The amendments incorporate the requirements
previously included in Interpretation 8 and Interpretation 11 and as a consequence these two Interpretations
are superseded by the amendments. These amendments are not expected to impact the company.
•
AASB 2009–9: Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards — Additional Exemptions for First-time
Adopters [AASB 1] (applicable for annual reporting periods commencing on or after 1 January 2010).
These amendments specify requirements for entities using the full cost method in place of retrospective
application of Australian Accounting Standards for oil and gas assets and exempt entities with existing leasing
contracts from reassessing the classification of those contracts in accordance with Interpretation 4 when the
application of their previous accounting policies would have given the same outcome. These amendments are
not expected to impact the company.
•
AASB 2009–10: Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards — Classification of Rights Issues [AASB
132] (applicable for annual reporting periods commencing on or after 1 February 2010).
The amendments clarify that rights, options or warrants to acquire a fixed number of an entity’s own equity
instruments for a fixed amount in any currency are equity instruments if the entity offers the rights, options or
warrants pro-rata to all existing owners of the same class of its own non-derivative equity instruments. The
amendments are not expected to impact the company.
•
AASB 2009–12: Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards [AASBs 5, 8, 108, 110, 112, 119, 133, 137,
139, 1023 & 1031 and Interpretations 2, 4, 16, 1039 & 1052] (applicable for annual reporting periods
commencing on or after 1 January 2011).
This Standard makes a number of editorial amendments to a range of Australian Accounting Standards and
Triathlon Australia Limited
ABN 67 007 356 907
Notes to the Financial Statements
For the Year Ended 30 June 2010
Interpretations, including amendments to reflect changes made to the text of IFRSs by the IASB. The
Standard also amends AASB 8 to require entities to exercise judgment in assessing whether a government
and entities known to be under the control of that government are considered a single customer for the
purposes of certain operating segment disclosures. The amendments are not expected to impact the
company.
•
AASB 2009–13: Amendments to Australian Accounting Standards arising from Interpretation 19 [AASB 1]
(applicable for annual reporting periods commencing on or after 1 July 2010).
This Standard makes amendments to AASB 1 arising from the issue of Interpretation 19. The amendments
allow a first-time adopter to apply the transitional provisions in Interpretation 19. This Interpretation is not
expected to impact the company.
•
AASB 2009–14: Amendments to Australian Interpretation — Prepayments of a Minimum Funding
Requirement [AASB Interpretation 14] (applicable for annual reporting periods commencing on or after 1
January 2011).
This standard amends Interpretation 14 to address unintended consequences that can arise from the previous
accounting requirements when an entity prepays future contributions into a defined benefit pension plan.
•
AASB Interpretation 19: Extinguishing Financial Liabilities with Equity Instruments (applicable for annual
reporting periods commencing from 1 July 2010).
This Interpretation deals with how a debtor would account for the extinguishment of a liability through the issue
of equity instruments. The Interpretation states that the issue of equity should be treated as the consideration
paid to extinguish the liability, and the equity instruments issued should be recognised at their fair value unless
fair value cannot be measured reliably in which case they shall be measured at the fair value of the liability
extinguished. The Interpretation deals with situations where either partial or full settlement of the liability has
occurred. This Interpretation is not expected to impact the company.
The company does not anticipate early adoption of any of the above Australian Accounting Standards.

Credit Risk — Trade and Other Receivables
The company does not have any material credit risk exposure to any single receivable or group of
receivables.
The following table details the company’s trade and other receivables exposed to credit risk (prior to
collateral and other credit enhancements) with ageing analysis and impairment provided for thereon.
Amounts are considered as ‘past due’ when the debt has not been settled within the terms and
conditions agreed between the company and the customer or counter party to the transaction.
Receivables that are past due are assessed for impairment by ascertaining solvency of the debtors and
are provided for where there are specific circumstances indicating that the debt may not be fully repaid
to the company.
The balances of receivables that remain within initial trade terms (as detailed in the table) are
considered to be of high credit quality, or have already been impaired.

Credit risk
The maximum exposure to credit risk, excluding the value of any collateral or other security, at balance
date to recognised financial assets, is the carrying amount, net of any provisions for impairment of those
assets, as disclosed in the balance sheet and notes to the financial statements. The entity does not have
any material credit risk exposure to any single receivable or group of receivables under financial
instruments entered into by the entity.
There are no material amounts of collateral held as security at 30 June 2010.
Credit risk is managed by the entity and reviewed regularly by the finance committee. It arises from
exposures to customers as well as through deposits with financial institutions.
The entity monitors the credit risk by actively assessing the rating quality and liquidity of counterparties:
—
Only banks and financial institutions with an ‘A’ rating are utilised.
—
Only accredited fund managers linked to ‘A’ rated financial institutions are used.
—
No more than 3% of total investments may be held at any time in a particular investment.
—
The credit standing of counterparties is reviewed monthly for liquidity and credit risk.
The trade receivables balances at 30 June 2010 and 30 June 2009 do not include any counterparties
with external credit ratings. Customers are assessed for credit worthiness using the criteria detailed
above.
Price risk
The entity is not exposed to any material commodity price risk.

Trade and sundry payables are expected to be paid as follows:
Trade payables of $413,207 are all payable in less than 3 months (2009: $442,842).

(c)
Net Fair Values
The net fair values of listed investments have been valued at the quoted market bid price at balance
date adjusted for transaction costs expected to be incurred. For other assets and other liabilities the
net fair value approximates their carrying values. No financial assets or financial liabilities are readily
traded on organised markets in standardised form other than listed investments. Financial assets
where the carrying amount exceeds net fair values have not been written down as the consolidated
group intends to hold these assets to maturity.
The aggregate net fair values and carrying amounts of financial assets and financial liabilities are
disclosed in the balance sheet and in the notes to the financial statements.
Triathlon Australia Limited has no non-current borrowings.
Sensitivity Analysis
The entity performed a sensitivity analysis relating to its exposure to interest rate risk at balance
date. This sensitivity analysis demonstrates that there is an immaterial effect on current year
results and equity which could result from a change in this risk, with the primary impact being on
the quantum of interest earned from interest bearing investments. It is calculated that the impact
on earnings and equity of an interest rate increase or decrease of 2% is $44,150 (2009:
$53,707).
This sensitivity analysis has been performed on the assumption that all other variables remain
unchanged.
No sensitivity analysis has been preformed for foreign exchange risk, as the entity is not
exposed to fluctuations in foreign exchange.
