Staff Spotlight: Adele Kincses

Congratulations to Adele

 
We’d like to acknowledge the achievements of our valued employee, Adele Kincses.
 
We are thrilled to recognise Adele’s accomplishments as a dedicated triathlete.
 
Adele was recently awarded the Victorian Triathlon State Series Champion (Female 20-24). What an incredible achievement!
 
Adele is a lifeguard and has been working at PARC for over a year. Training with the Mornington Peninsula Triathlon Club up to 6 times a week, she balances her training with lifeguarding, study and also working in diabetes research!
 
A triathlon is a multi-sport event with 3 legs – a swim, ride and run. The distances vary from Sprint (750m swim, 20km ride and 5km run) to full Iron Man (3.8km swim, 180km ride and 42km run)
 
Adele trains for 13-15 hours every week and her dedication is evident in her achievements at State level.
 
How long have you been working at PARC and how long have you been swimming? 
I started working at PARC in April 2022. Started swimming lessons at 6 months old and never stopped!
 
How often do you train with MPTC?
Usually 5-6 sessions per week with the group, plus a handful more by myself as directed by my coach Stephen Foster. 
 
What does a standard week look like for you?
Training is usually 3 swim sessions, 3-4 rides, 4 runs and 2 gym sessions totalling 13-15 hours per week. Aside from PARC I also work in diabetes research and am studying my Master’s of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. 
 
How did you get started in the sport and how long have you been competing?
I was looking for a personal challenge and I had a friend who was racing so just decided to give one a go and never looked back! I started properly training with my coach and MPTC in 2021.
 
What’s your favourite leg?
The swim. 
 
What do you like to do in your downtime?
Baking (usually something chocolatey) or reading a good book. 
 
How did you feel when you found out you had won?
Surprised, I never thought I’d even be in contention for an award like this when I started in the sport!
 
What advice would you give to anyone wanting to get into triathlon?
Just go for it, join your local club (MPTC of course) and enter a race – this sport seriously has the most supportive and encouraging community at all levels, and is so much fun to be a part of.
