After a complete round of programs, Centre competition returned to program 1 on Saturday morning. The cool conditions certainly put the young athletes to the test, but as they continue to improve each week, over 200 personal best results were recorded. Emilia Ibrahim was awarded the Darley Bakehouse PB Star of the Week achieving PB’s in all five of her events. New Under 7 athlete Anthony Webb was presented with the Domino’s Trainer of the Week award.
Under 11 athletes Alexis Farrell set a new Centre record in the Shot Put with a outstanding put of 8.94 metres. The previous record had stood for over 13 years.
The Centre signed up their 230th members on the weekend as registration continue to grow. Interested new athletes are still welcome to take up the Little Athletics Victoria 2 week free trial offer.
This Saturday will be the Centre Combined Event. This is the scheduled weekly meet for the Centre. All athletes will compete in five events (hurdles, sprint, distance, discus & long jump) gaining points in each event. All five events must be competed in to have completed the Combined Event. Athletes must arrive by 8.30am for the first event. If one event is not competed in, that athlete will be deemed ineligible to win an award.
Presentations will be made the following week. Trophies are awarded to the winners of each age group with medals for second and third. All athletes will receive a Certificate of Participation.
Athletes must be in correct uniform (Club polo and plain black shorts), including Commonwealth Bank registration tags.
