Last weekend we had 22 club members compete in the Victorian Championships, earning NINE medals. There were some really outstanding efforts.
Not in any order, but the run of Christine Byrne, just 17, in placing (3rd) BRONZE,in the Women’s OPEN 100m title in a very quick PB of 12.12 Well done Christine (reward for all the commitment you give, and mum Leanne, in travelling from Leongatha for racing and training.
We come to expect top efforts from Rhydian in the walks and he never disappoints. This time maintaining his current top form to go under 20 minutes for the 5000m walk 19:43.53
Jordan Ziebel had a great run in the 110 hurdles to go under 15.0 for BRONZE. Well done Jordan.
Noni Thompson continues to produce fine efforts in the throws and it is good to see Kaitlyn Papworth among the medals too.
Emily McLean and Simone McInnes also attained bronze in 400 Hurdles and 5km walk, both completing a fine season of consistent improvements and club team efforts.
Well done ALL.
