    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!
