Fitness, fun and raising funds

Mar. 18, 2020

Fifteen of Mitsui’s fittest and fiercest athletes recently lined up to compete in the Melbourne leg of the Australian Corporate Triathlon.

Five teams of three competitors each completed either the swim, the bike leg or the run to combine for a single time.

Mitsui tax accountant and team organiser, Roy Ng said the benefits of participating in the event were threefold - having fun with work mates, completing a difficult challenge and raising funds for charity.

“The Corporate Triathlon is a fantastic event and it really built camaraderie amongst all of the people who took part.”

“Everyone who competed trained really hard in the lead up and it gave them each the opportunity to challenge themselves to take their fitness to another level.

“Our colleagues, family and friends were all a great support in sponsoring our efforts. We raised over $2000 for the Smith Family, an education charity that do amazing work with Australian children living in poverty,” Roy said.
