Former Australian representative at the IAAF world juniors, Natasha Stenberg is a welcome addition to the coaching ranks in NSW. The former elite 400/800m athlete is already having an impact on our junior talent as we witnessed over the weekend of the NSW junior championships. Felix Long was outstanding winning the U16 sprints. Another of her athletes, whom she co-coaches with Ben Colless, is Mark Fokas, who is undoubtedly one of leading NSW junior athletes. His progression in the hurdles and 200m has been stunning, including his amazing win in the U17 200m over a top field including ACT’s Edward Osei-Nketi. On the weekend, Natasha also guided the Swann twins, Eliza and Matilda, along with sprinter Greg Allen.
