ADAM ‘Hummo’ HUMMERSTON

President

Adam moved to the Shire from the Inner West in 2011, with his wife Penny, and kids Jake, Toby, Amy and Kate. The very next day they headed back up to Homebush where Penny completed her first triathlon with a bunch of school mums whilst Adam and the kids cheered from the sideline. By the end of that very first full day in the Shire the Triathlon bug had hit the whole family.

An extremely fortunate meeting of a CTC member at kids swimming lessons introduced Team Hummo to Cronulla Tri Club. The club became a social outlet for Adam and Penny and the kids, but at the same time changed their health and wellbeing for the better.

Adam started completing club races and enticers then progressing in distances through Sprint and Standard and has now completed in a number of Long Course Triathlons, and endurance bike races. Completing an Ironman is still on the bucket list.

Having spent a few years on the committee in various roles, he felt it time to step up to President in 2019 to give back to the club and the members that had supported his family following their move down south and promoted a far healthier lifestyle for them all.

When Adam is not hanging around the club or home, you might find him piloting ships into Sydney Harbour and Port Botany.

JOHN ‘Johnno’ von ELL

Vice President & Committee Chair

John was a rower and runner back in Canada and upon arrival to Australia was convinced by a mate to try a triathlon… a 70.3. During the 70.3 training, that same mate up-sold him to register for a full Ironman. Not your ideal introduction to the sport, but luckily the experience didn’t kill him and he’s still here with us today training for 70.3s.

John moved to Cronulla in early 2017 and soon linked up with the CTC through the Wednesday evening runs. The friendliness of the members and community feel are what he says kept him coming back. John has been leading the club’s races since 2017, and last year took on the role of VP & Chair. John earns a living as a Biomedical Engineer fixing faces and is a TA Technical Offical. In his spare time, you can find him in his garage building and maintaining bikes and brewing beer.

Adam Shroud

Club Captain

Adam grew-up in a family of cyclist and in cycling club near London akin to CTC, his first race was at the age of eight years old.

From the age of fifteen road racing took over his life until his early 20’s during this time he progressed through the ranks to race semi-professionally whilst working full time as an accountant. 

His biggest multi-sport achievements to date were 3rd (AG) in Australian duathlon, and then representing Australia in age-group world championship the following year in Adelaide in 2015 when he finished 7th (AG) in the world.

In between those two races he did Port Mac ironman in 2015, in just under ten and half hours, finishing with 3.20 marathon split. 

This will be Adam’s 3rd year on the committee and his first as club captain. His goal for the year as club captain is to engage with members and encourage team Cronulla to train together, as we roll-out of the COVID era.

Come along to Saturday @ 6 each week and you can experience training and having fun in a safe environment.

Scott has now completed 4 Ironman, and many long distance Triathlons. Scott loves the training for 3 different disciplines, love the people and being part of the CTC. Scott was never into sports growing up, he says “it is great now to find the love and enjoyment of training and racing, challenging myself to continually improve and better myself”.

ERICA GALEA

Junior Coordinator & Coach

Runner, mountain biker, adventure racer, cyclist, wanna-be paddler, but never a swimmer…and due to this triathlon wasn’t ever on the radar for Erica until her kids started going to the 6:30 pm Wednesday night Junior’s training (about the only weekly sport session she could get them too with a full-time working parent gig) and her son fell head over heels for the sport. After a couple of years sitting by the sidelines, it was this same son that convinced her to give one a go and she did her first CTC club triathlon in a team with her husband, who made her do the…you guessed it, swim. Challenge accepted. Triathlon was now a family affair.
In 2017 Erica came on-board as a Co-Junior Coordinator and has spent the past couple of years as part of this team, helping to take the CTC Junior Program to the next level. In 2018 she became a TNSW Accredited Foundation Coach and is actively involved with TNSW Junior Development opportunities where possible to benefit the club and juniors in the program. She has spent the past couple of years as an active triathlon competitor herself competing across multiple distance events from Sprint to 70.3. Her season goal is to not let her senior juniors beat her in a Sprint distance race, but she’s not holding out much hope!

In her spare time…who are we kidding, there’s no spare time!

BRETT ‘Geelong’ ADAMSKI

Brett’s running started with the Sutho2Surf in 2008, from there he happened to enter himself into a 100kms trail run in the Blue Mountains. Since then, Brett has completed 12 Ultra Marathons, plus a number of road marathons and other running events. However it was a trip to Port Douglas and Palm Cove in June 2015 where he saw the Cairns Ironman. From there on, swimming and bike riding were added to the mix, with Brett now going on to complete multiple Ironmans and 70.3 events.

Brett’s training is well managed with many very early morning sessions, as he has 3 young kids! This is only achieved with loving and very supportive wife Robyn – number one Support Crew. Brett continues to be involved in the Cronulla Triathlon Club and relishes his role as Co-Run Captain. If you wish to clock up some kms in your running shoes, Brettski is the one to follow, especially on the Club’s Wednesday Night Runs. Brett works at Sydney Water as a Safety Manager.
