  • After breakout 2014, Almaz Ayana is ready to amaze in Beijing
    The athletics world is accustomed to seeing Ethiopian women winning 5000m or 10,000m titles, but no one from the East African nation of 94million whose last name does not start with a ‘D’ had been able to get to the top of the podium at the Olympic Games, IAAF World Championships, IAAF World Cross Country Championships, or IAAF Continental Cup over the past decade prior to mid-September.
  • Yemaneberhan Crippa – the orphan born to run
    You have to go back more than 30 years to find the last European runner who stood on the podium after the junior men’s race at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships – when Spain’s Pere Casacuberta won in 1984 – so it has to be a very long shot that Italy’s Yemaneberhan Crippa will end that streak in Guiyang, China, next March.
  • Rop and Kipyegon top the bill in Brussels
    A fine selection of the world’s most promising young distance runners, arguably topped by Bahrain’s Albert Rop and Kenya’s Faith Kipyegon, will gather at the Iris Lotto Cross Cup meeting in Brussels, the second of this winter’s IAAF Cross Country Permit meetings, on Sunday (21).
  • Teenage talents Cheptegei and Jebet head to Campaccio
    Organisers of the 58th Campaccio International Cross Country, an IAAF Cross Country Permit meeting in the Italian town of San Giorgio su Legnano, have turned to some of the top young distance-running talent around the world to showcase their event on 6 January.
  • IAAF World Cross Country Championships, Guiyang 2015 – 100 days to go
    The countdown starts in earnest to the 2015 IAAF World Cross Country Championships, Guiyang 2015 as Thursday (18) marked just 100 days to go until China stages the world’s premier cross-country competition for the first time.

    Club 5000m Open Record

    At recent Briggs Memorial athletic meeting in Hobart, Harry Summers broke club record at 5000m. Harry made a promise, after very impressive 10000m that he ran at Zatopek 10 in December, to break this record. After 4 weeks of altitude training at Falls Creek, Harry smashed his old personal best time of 14:15, that he ran couple of years ago, with very fine performance of 13:34.58 that bettered old club record by nearly 3 seconds (13:37.48 held by Jeremy Roff). Harry will most likely race 10000m in USA sometime in April/May and we could only hope that this club record (28:19.39 held by Jeffrey Hunt) will go down as well.

    State Relays 2011 - Report

    If someone looks at medal tally at this year State Relays our club did a giant leap comparing to last year. We brought home 6 gold and one bronze medal (last year 1 gold, 1 silver, 4 bronze). As usual there was a little bit of drama and effort to put teams together. We had athletes pulling out literally in the morning of competition day. But that is a kind of normal as our sport is really tough one, it test athletes body and mind all the time.
