Masters families (17/1/2019)

Perry Birkett took out the 3000, 1000 and 200 metre runs, though tightly pressed by his daughter in the 200. Louise McLean and husband Glenn were copycats as each won heats of the 60 metres and each placed third in heats of the first round of the ‘Gwen Davidson’ 100 metres handicap. Shirley Coppock continued her return to competition and, paced by grandson Cameron, won the walk handicap.

Sadness and joy (3/1/2019)

Masters Athletics farewelled great friend Alan Sinclair. Alan’s remarkable career included 19 marathons after which he turned to sprinting, winning six state masters titles. He contributed enormously until his final illness as an expert adviser to all on running style and training.
East Burwood welcomed back Shirley Coppock, the heart and soul of the club!  Holder of six state sprint records Shirley resumed gently in the 800 metres walk.
