Double gold for UTS Norths at State Titles
DECEMBER 06, 2017
Congratulations to Ed Goddard and Alec Diamond who won gold medals on the weekend. Ed won the State 5000m title easily in a personal best time of 14:11. This is an excellent time in the wet conditions and beat his previous PB by 20 seconds. This time is only 12 seconds outside of John Farrington’s long standing club record which was set in 1970.
His next immediate goal is the Zatopek 10 Australian 10000m Championships in Melbourne on 14th December. Asked about his goals for 2018, Ed said “I’d love to run a 5000 under 14 minutes, which I think in better conditions and a paced race I would hope to, and maybe run around 13:50”. He will then be aiming for the World University Cross Country Championships in Switzerland in April.
Congratulations also to Alec Diamond who was victorious in a closely fought the Open Decathlon. Alec was 319 points ahead of Aaron Booth with just the javelin and 1500m to go. Aaron’s javelin beat Alec by some 10m and he finished 15 seconds ahead of Alec in the 1500m. However, fortunately Alec lasted long enough and won the overall competition by just 10 points. Alec had a fantastic weekend having achieved PB’s in 6 different events, the 100m, long jump, shot put, 400m, pole vault and 1500m. His overall score was 7,592 which was a massive PB and was over 1000 points better than he scored in the same competition last year. It was just 8 points short of the B qualifier for the Commonwealth Games.
Alec said that he was particularly pleased with his PB’s in the 100m 10.96 secs +1.3 and the long jump 7.48m +1.8.
Congratulations to 14 year old Jess Maciver in the U16 Heptathlon for winning a silver medal. Competing in her first Heptathlon, Jess did PB’s in the 90m hurdles, 200m and 800m. The PB that most excited her was her 200m which she clocked 26.10 secs.
“This was my first real Heptathlon, I really enjoyed it. I have always done well at the Little Athletics State multi competitions from the age of 8 so was looking forward in doing a real Heptathlon” Jess is coached by Alysha Burnett in her field events and Andy Burton for her sprints /hurdles. When asked for her goals in 2018, she said “My goals for 2018 are to try and place at the National combined event championships in March and do really well at Australian Juniors as well. With both coaches looking after me and making sure I train smartly I might be able to achieve these goals.” Club mate Georgia Healy finished 4th in the same event, not far off a bronze medal.
