Hull of a Rise

Hull of a Rise

The rise of NSW distance runner Jessica Hull over the past 15 months has been breathtaking. She has progressed from a competitive teenage distance runner to, at just 22, a top-4 Australian all-time over 1500m and 5000m. In the last 11 years only Linden Hall (at 1500m) has run faster than Hull over 1500m and 5000m. But the story of her rise is due to the program her father/coach, Simon, implemented through her teenage years, described by Jessica as: “meticulously planned throughout my junior development to built the foundation I have now.”

Winkcup streaks onto team for World Championships

Winkcup streaks onto team for World Championships

After missing selection in the Australian team for the World University Games in the idyllic city of Naples, steeplechaser Georgia Winkcup shifted her focus for the European summer. She would race in June at the Oceania Championships in Townsville, then head to Europe; not to compete, but for a holiday and Contiki tour. However, all that changed in less than ten minutes on 27 June – after improving her PB by 39 seconds during three races, she is now travelling to Doha for the World Athletics Championships later this month.
