Jemima Montag to Represent Australia at Commonwealth games 2018

Posted: 14-Feb-2018 by Athletics

Club athlete Jemima Montag has been selected in the Commonwealth Games team – she will represent Australia in the 20K race walk – to be held at 7am on Sunday 8th April on the Gold Coast. Jemima walked a slashing 91 minutes 31.26 seconds in Adelaide, to finish 2nd in the Australian championship and earn immediate selection in the team. She was only 3 seconds behind the winner – and 3 seconds ahead of third! Jemima’s time would have WON a gold medal in the past 3 Commonwealth Games 20K walks! It is only the second time Jemima has race walked the 20K distance – so her best is yet to come.
