SMU Aquathlon (SMURTS)

SMU Aquathlon was first conceived around a small table cluttered with cups from SMU’s favourite (or otherwise) tea shop in 2007. The general idea was to provide a home for multi-sport athletes in SMU where everyone could share and learn from follow club members, and to introduce to the school population this seemingly insane sport that we affectionately refer to as a lifestyle sport. Why do we call it a lifestyle sport? The reason is simple. This sport does not discriminate anyone and is open to all who wishes to. Age, weight, height, gender and even disability are definitely not an issue when it comes to doing an aquathlon or triathlon.

Racing in our first nation-wide competition just days after forming the club, the SMURTS nonetheless managed to come in 2nd, beating traditional powerhouses such as Nanyang Technological University. It was a sweet ending to the hectic journey that the few of us had embarked upon. The SMURTS now look forward to retaining or even improving on their IVP standing this year in less than a month’s time. Will we make it? We can’t be too sure, but definitely every SMURT at the start line of this year’s IVP will be enduring and giving his/her all every step of the way. And that is the most basic essence of a lifestyle sport: Sheer grit.

After months of convincing the relevant, the green light was given for our infant club. SMURTS is an abbreviation for SMU Turtles, amphibious and steady. With the right amount of training, knowledge and determination, anyone will be able to complete a triathlon.
