Celebrations home and away (10/10/2019)

 

Teams of four runners competed at East Burwood in the annual Doug Orr 880 yards run. Knox, as often before, came out on top with Croydon second and East Burwood third. Fastest male was Grant Murfett and fastest female Jess Dux.
Louise McLean, Toni Matters and Sonya Pollard are back from a hugely successful Australian Masters Games in Adelaide. They dominated the 50 age group in sprints, hurdles, jumps and throws. Toni won five gold medals.

Enduring champion (3/10/2019)

Leo Coffey at 89 is easing back a bit. This week he only ran the 60 metres and threw the javelin. Leo holds Victorian and Australian 60 and 100 metre sprints and long and triple jump records. He holds a world record as a member of an  80+ years  4* 400 metres relay team.

There were some good performances by non-record holders! Stephen Day ran a very fast 3000 metres. Kylie Goodrick won a 60 metres sprint and the walk handicap. Liz Clennnell won the 880 yards run and was fastest in the walk.

Winning women (26/9/2019)

Jess Dux after multiple wins at the Oceania games in Queensland won 110 and 200 metre sprints and the long jump. Ros Lording after a fine 23k run on the Great Ocean Road was best in the 1k walk and the 2k run. Some men won too: Stephen Day in the 4k run and Josh O’Connor in in the 60 metre sprint, leading home the Durrants, Jack and father Paul.
