Charlie’s Angels (25/5/2017)

For the first time ever women made up the whole field in the 5,000 metres. Liz Eastwood in fine form  won from Michelle Quan, Annette Pelgrim and Janet Holmes. And in the sprints Jess Dux prevailed over men and women with the  60 metres in 8.1.seconds and the 200 metres in 28.7.
At least one man had success. In the Great Ocean Road Running Festival Sam Defanis won his age group in the 14k — for the fifth year in a row.
 
 
Finding form at all ages (18/5/2017)
 
Glenn McLean, 52, had his best runs for the year in the 100 and 150 metre sprints, in the latter just shading Aaron Leonard, 41.  Bob Henderson, 70, won again in the 400 handicap series and Travis Moore, 34, maintained his top level in winning the 4,000 metres.
 

A successful hard days night (11/5/2017) 

Jack Durrant starting from 8 metres behind scratch in the 100 metre handicap passed nearly all the field including his father Paul to finish second to Chris Worsnop. Jack and Chris also ran the 60 metres, Jack won the javelin and Chris placed second in the 1200 metre walk and third in the 3000 metres run.
 
Rise of the field events (4/5/2017)
 
A surprising development is the rising interest and performance in throwing events. This week the top three, Paul Durrant, Aaron Leonard and Toni Matters (state champion) had fine throws in the shot put. Future battles in the discus and javelin are anticipated.
Top sprinter Paul Foster was back and won well in the 110 and 200 metre sprints. Travis Moore  improved his personal bests in winning the 600 and 3000 metre runs.
 

Amazing debut (27/4/2017)

Aaron Leonard, 41, attended for the first time on Thursday and showed striking form: second in the 60 metres, fastest in the 400 metres and second fastest in the 3,000 metres. But his javelin astounded. He threw 42.3 metres– seven metres better than the winner threw at last month’s state championship.
Two showing great improvement are Glenn McLean with wins in the 60 and 110 metre sprints and Travis Moore with a personal best and fastest in the 3,000 metres.
