Track Wrap

Promising performances and stormy weather (19/7/2018)

Newcomer Glenn Berry shone in winning the 60 metre sprint and powering home in the 400 metres. Leo Watson easily won the 1200 metre walk in heavy rain. One competitor tried to walk with an umbrella but suffered a nasty spike from it. No Russian intervention has been detected. Yet.

New and old and fast (12/07/2018)
Julian Boland made a first appearance at East Burwood and impressed with first in the 800 metres run, second in the 1000 metres walk and third in the 150 metre sprint. Old faithful Paul Durrant was as usual fast, with clear wins in the 60, 100 and 150 metre sprints.

Throwing yourself in (6/7/2018)

New member Kaylie Goodrick got in the swing in the javelin after a gap of several years. She also took on the 60 metres sprint and the 1000 metres walk. Michelle Quan is closing the gap to husband David in the 5000 metres run. An upset soon!
