Author: Athletics NSW Administrator/Wednesday, 25 August 2010/Categories: News

Nicholas Hough (Hills) guided Oceania to a bronze medal in the boys medley relay at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore, running a blistering 32.3s for the 300m leg.

His split was the fastest of the race and pushed Oceania into third place behind the Americas and Europe and ahead of Africa and Asia.

On the final day of competition, Cherrybrook’s Jenny Blundell also finished fifth in the 1000m in 2m:46.82s behind Ethiopia’s Tizita Ashame who ran a pb of 2m:43.24s to claim the gold medal.

Jenny also ran the 400m leg of the medley relay for the Oceania team which finished fourth.

Her Cherrybrook teammate Michele Jenneke ran the 100m leg.

The contingent of six NSW athletes at the Games won a total of four medals: one gold, two silver and a bronze.

As well as winning bronze in the relay, Hough claimed gold in the 110m hurdles, while Jenneke was second in the 100m hurdles and Brandon Starc was second in the high jump.
