A good night for Pauls (09/11/2017)

 Paul Durrant was in fine form with top performances in 60 and 100 metre sprints and the shot put. Paul Earle was a clear winner in the 1500 metre and 4000 metre runs. Others had success too! Stephen Day won well in the 400 metres and Bob Henderson in the 2000 metres.

Australian Masters Games success (26/10/2017)

The Australian Masters Games in 48 different sports have just been held in Tasmania. Athletics was on a first class track in Penguin a small town on the north west coast. Shirley Coppock and Allan Wood dominated the 80 years age group both winning their 60, 100, 200 and 400 metre runs with Allan also winning the long jump, triple jump and javelin.
Back at East Burwood the exciting race on Thursday was the 5,000 metres where fast finishing Annette Pelgrim was caught by even faster, and very much younger, invitation runner Zac Matters.
Doug Orr Athletics Event Final (12/10/2017)
 
Competitors from eastern Masters Athletics venues converged at East Burwood for the annual Doug Orr 880 yards Inter-venue Final event on Thursday evening.
The jubilant East Burwood team took out first place, followed by Doncaster in second. Individual placings saw Rob Stagg (Croydon) first, Stephen Day (E.Burw) second and Graeme Ford (Donc) third.
The fastest male was David McConnell (Donc) and fastest female was Ros Lording (E.Burw).

New, old and young (02/11/2017)

Geoff Whitehall, new to East Burwood, showed real speed in winning the 100 metres and 300 metre sprints. Jack Fredrickson, 78, making a comeback from knee surgery held off close challengers to win the 1000 metre walk handicap. Ros Lording had a great finish in the 600 metres run but could get only a little closer to breakaway son Remy.

Great debut  (19/10/17)

Trish Carlin joined masters athletics on Thursday and tackled the 1k walk and the 60, 100 and 600 metre runs. She teamed with top sprinter Paul Durrant to win the 2 x 200 metre relay, capping a rewarding first night.
Bob Lewis, 89, holder of the Australian records for the one hour run for 75 and 80 year olds, held off pursuers to win the 1K handicap walk. Bob was Whitehorse Athlete of the Year in 2003.
Light and Dark (05/10/2017)
 
The extra daylight brought with it some fast runs as Jess Dux took out first place in the 60m, 100m and first heat of the 200m sprint.
Paul Durrant provided her with some good competition taking the second heat of the 200m and overall 200m event as well as the javelin.
The rain later in the evening didn’t deter the longer distance runners with Bob Henderson taking out the 3km and Chris Worsnop the 5km run under lights.
