AUSTRALIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS- OPEN, AMBULANT AND UNDERAGE 2017
What a fantastic Championship for our Athletes. There were some stunning results and a spate of Club Records and Medals.
Congratulations to ALL who took part in what was a fantastic climax to our summer season. (still Stawell Gift and Aust Little Aths and Masters to come later).
These represent some of best results for many years.
There were many many highlights and at the risk of singling one out I would like to mention 18yo Christine Byrne’s Club Record 100m in winning GOLD in the 100m in Club OPEN Record time of 11.69. This breaks a record set by the great late Wendy Hayes, who was the Club’s first women to represent the Club in the Empire Games (1958 in Cardiff). Her record of (11.6h)11.84 had stood for 58 years (with Katie Chivers and Ellia Green running close electronic equivalents). A really top effort Christine, and of course well done to your coach (club coach Terri Cater).
