Launceston locomotive Melissa Clark has taken home the female open overall triathlon crown at the Triathlon Tasmania Awards.
The Launceston Triathlon Club member was announced the winner after finishing on top in both the female state sprint and state series classes.
Clark said finishing up the season as the overall champion felt really great.
"It's always an awesome accomplishment, especially now that I'm a mum," Clark said.
She added that being a mother to twins gave her motivation to prove that she hadn't lost a touch.
"I've won races before I had kids, so to prove it to myself afterwards is really good," Clark said.
"Not just proving it to myself but showing others that it can be done."
Clark also mention how great it was to see her children inspired by her and take up the triathlete life.

Clark said a season highlight for her was competing in the Coles Bay race, noting the cold waters as a welcome challenge.
"It's the only half iron man route in the state and it's awesome," she said.
"I did it three weeks after completing the Overland Track too."
Recently becoming a mother, combined with being a nurse at the Launceston General Hospital, has made for less training time according to Clark.
"My regime needed altering due to her new role as a mother," she said.
"Needed to train a lot smarter than I used to and use time more efficiently."
Hobart's Hayden Armstrong was awarded first in the male open overall class.
Armstrong had a dominant season, claiming gold in the state series, state sprint and state Olympic classes.
The Bridport Triathlon was presented with race of the year.
