  • Beernaert secures Youth Olympic gold in spectacle of stages in Buenos Aires
    Though deciding medallists based on combined results makes for some head-scratching at the end of an event, the drama the format provides was evident on the fourth day of athletics at the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympics Games on Sunday (14). No more so than in the women’s long jump, where a single centimetre separated the three medallists after a bout of last-round drama.
  • Three race records fall in wind-swept Lisbon
    The fast-acting organisers of the EDP Lisbon Marathon and Vodafone Half Marathon delayed the start times of both races by an hour and moved the location of the start line for the half marathon to avoid the strong winds of Hurricane Leslie on Sunday (14).
  • Road round-up: Tsegay and Claude-Boxberger prevail in Paris, Cheptegei triumphs in Durban
    Eritrea’s Samuel Tsegay and France’s Ophélie Claude-Boxberger took top honours at the 20km de Paris on Sunday (14), winning the 40th edition of the IAAF Bronze Label road race in 58:23 and 1:09:48 respectively.

    RBH’s Miracle Night at Bankstown Invitational – 6 Mar 2014

     

    Supporting an initiative of ANSW to develop Western Sydney athletics while providing opportunity to qualify for international events, RBH attended the Bankstown Invitational at The Crest in numbers and absolutely dominated! We earned two world junior qualifying times along with a very strong Commonwealth Games B qualifier & won eight of the 21 events on offer!

     

     

    Details below:

    • Morgan McDonald won the 5000m in 14:07.11 (A World Junior qualifying time franked by his win at National Juniors the following week, also an U/20 club record and we must thank Ben St Lawrence from St George who paced him, encouraged him and directed lapped traffic!)
    • Jack Stapleton ran fourth in the 1500m A race in 3:44.46 (A World Junior qualifying time and also an U/20 club record - bringing our total members qualified for World Juniors to three when you include Molly Blakey who has already qualified in the 400m)
    • Victoria Mitchell won the 3000m steeple in 9:46.98 (A Commonwealth Games B qualifier and only two seconds outside an A qualifier, also bettering the Senior club record by over 15 seconds – here we must thank our members Ellen Kriedemann and Audrey Amiya-Hall who ran this event primarily to provide enough numbers to ratify the race as a Commonwealth Games qualifier; their glee when Victoria succeeded was expressed when they still had two laps to go!)
    • Lachlan Little won the long jump in 7.49m (within inches of a World Junior qualifier)
    • Pat Elliot won the 1500m B race in a whisker over 4 minutes in a breathtaking last lap tussle
    • Jim Dawes won the master’s 1500m in 4:38.88 after lapping two competitors
    • Justin James won the novelty-suit race 800m in 2:07!

    Congrats to all concerned and stay tuned for ANSW are planning the same deal at ES Marks!

    Morgan was spent after this race, WJ qualifier plus club's U20 record, what an effort
