12th May 2021

Vic Masters in Geelong celebrated our 41st birthday in style with the running of the Keith Bird Mile.  Dan Wight closed the gap on Luke Haines in the last 200m and looked to be pulling ahead only for Haines to surge over the last 50m to claim the first heat of the mile. Jane White battled a determined Sharon Pedersen to claim the mile title. Dave Elward again has claimed one of Mike McAvoy’s records this time in the mile.  Dale Jennings set a new M80 mile record.

In the second heat Ernie Stewart held off a fast finishing Marcus Gniel and Murray Long. Frank Englesman battled it out with Jeff Walker in the final meters with Walker crossing first by the narrowest of margins

The 100m was taken out by Laith Al-Hasani and Fred Barnett broke her F70 record.

In the concluding 2400, Haines again battled it out with Wright with an equally close result Kath Oliver again broke the F65 record for the distance

Many thanks to Martin and Kath for officiating tonight
