It’s a great time to be following the sport of athletics and I hope you all had an opportunity to catch up on the action from the Australian Championships on the Gold Coast last weekend. If you need a recap, please check the following:
It was a weekend of special performances from the top athletes in our state. A few of the many highlights are:
- Dani Stevens (WES) winning her 13th national discus title
- Morgan McDonald (RBH) taking out the 5000m over a crack field
- Two-hundredths of a second separating gold medallist Anneliese Rubie (SYU) and runner-up, teenager BendereOboya (CBT) in the 400m. If you want to see what the sport can deliver, please take a minute to watch this race.
