Tess Burger competes in the 1500m

Some terrific results for club members on the weekend. Nice to see Tess Burger (photo above) up and running again after a long recovery from injury. In her first run since the winter x country season Tess ran a great pb in the 1500 (5.05.1) to qualify for the Australian Junior Track and Field team for Maccabiah Games. She will be running her pet event, the 3000m on Thursday evening. Asher Marks ran a season’s best 52.98 sec in the 400m whilst Liam Eliau ran 12.24 in the 100m despite almost missing the start!

Next Shield competition will be on this Thursday evening at Knox Athletic Track – program attached, refer Shield Round 9 Program 1 starting at 6.30pm. Events include 200m, 800m, 3K and 5K as well as triple jump and shot put. Pre-registration  by midnight tonight on the Athletics Victoria web site.
