Medal rush for UTS Norths at the Nationals
APRIL 8, 2016
UTS Norths had an excellent tally of 33 athletes competing in the Australian Open and Combined Event Championships in Sydney. Of these, there were 2 gold medallists and 3 bronze medallists which is an outstanding effort.
Congratulations to the following members who won medals:
Alec Diamond – won gold in the u20 Decathlon with an outstanding score of 7,291 points. This clinched a seat on the plane to Poland for the World Juniors with this qualifying performance. It was also a personal best score and a new u20 club record. It was also a stunning improvement on his score compared to when he won the State Junior title with a score of 6,688 points. He now joins other UTS Norths members who have already qualified for Poland ie Sam Geddes, Bella O’Grady, Annabel McDermott and Olivia Cason;
Alex Willett – won gold in the u16 Heptathlon with a score of 4,304 points. This was also a club record. The win was even more remarkable as he stumbled in the 100 metres hurdles and nearly fell over but still managed to run a good time. He was still able to continue on to win the overall event;
Mason Cohen – won a bronze in the open men’s 800 metres with a fast finish in a great time of 1m 47.41s. Mason has had a great season having won the State title in this event;
Sean Barnes – won bronze in the open men’s triple jump with a leap of 15.71 metres. This was a PB for Sean and it also equals the club record has stood since 2011. Sean managed to clinch the bronze on his last jump in the competition;
Jay Felton – won a bronze in the open men’s 10k walk in a fantastic time of 44m 30.04s and this also smashed the club record.
Special mention should also be made about:
Liam Speers who competed in both the open shot put (4th) and discus (9th). He was unlucky not to get a bronze in the shot put as he threw 15.37m on his last throw to miss the bronze by just 3 centimetres;
Sophie McGovern, only 15 years of age but competed in the open 100m, 200m and 400 metres hurdles – a fantastic effort by Sophie at such an young age.
Congratulations to all of the other club members who competed in the championships.
