Have you noticed the tremendous number of sprinters and hurdlers emerging from the Cherrybrook athletics club in the last couple of years?

In recent years they have included: Michelle Jenneke, Nick Andrews, Jacob McCorry, Jordan Shelley and Rachel Pace.

Zisti’s next wave of talent include: Tiana Death, Imogen Breslin, Katie Devitt, Harry Andrews, Courtney Cattell, Emily Britten, Nic Thomson, Nick Dang, Nat Setiadji, Mia Hemsworth and more.
