UWA Triathlon Club member and two-time World Champion Felicity Sheedy-Ryan also competed in the Open Female category, also achieving first place. After starting behind some of her competitors, Sheedy-Ryan ended the race one and a half minutes ahead of her closest competitor.

UWA Sport staff member and UWA Triathlon Club member Agostino Zurzolo also achieved first place in the 25-29 age category, and a number of other UWA Triathlon Club members competed, including Daniel Sly, Alexandra Meek, Hamish Delorenzo, Jun-Ting Yeung and Bethan Lowe.
