Ryan Cuzner’s Trans Tasman triumph

Ginninderra's Ryan Cuzner has followed some of the club's best talent by competing in his first Trans Tasman challenge.

The Trans Tasman is for athletes in the U11 and U12 age groups, from both NSW and Auckland. Every second year, a team from NSW (boys and girls in both the U11 and U12 age groups), travel to Auckland for the Trans Tasman Tour. On alternate years, a team from Auckland travels to Sydney.

Ryan has joined fellow Tigers Esther Coates, Teliya Hetaraka, Charlotte Rauraa and Rebecca Guest in the prestigious event.

In January 2017 the Trans Tasman Challenge took place in Sydney. Ryan competed in the 800m (2:34.96) and 1500m (5:20,79).  Ryan's 800m performance earned him his first international athletics medal with a bronze.

Ryan trains under Ginninderra's distance Coach Brian Daly. Congratulations to both for a marvellous pair of performances.
