High Noon on Sunday featured some swirling winds especially in the 100m. Spencer Cox (12.15)was the best of the Tigers finishing 4th overall and the best of the masters Athletes. Brodie Goecke-Beard (13.87) ran very well against the senior boys finishing 6th in his heat. Eden (14.92) got the win on his father Neil Thomas (14.94) in the 4th heat of the day, finishing 5th and 6th respectively.
Spencer (24.30) backed up in the 200m and finished a place higher coming third overall. Ginninderra team mate Caleb Joliffe (26.01) ran superbly beating his seed time in winning heat 2. His time was good enough for heat 1. Eden (31.60) yet again took line honours in the race of the Thomas’ edging Neil (31.92) by 0.3s.
Neil Thomas’ return to athletics after 5 months off due to a broken leg looks like he will return stronger and better by the time summer series has finished.
Stephen Fraser showed he’s no slouch in the Men’s Hammer Throw taking out first place with a mighty heave of 41.22m. His throw is a new club record for U18 Men and is only 2m behind the U20 Record.
Brodie demonstrated his multi talents in taking out the Triple Jump with the longest leap of 9.46m. He is really following in the footsteps of his fellow Tigers including Mitchall Anderson, Jeremy Maranan, Austin Tetteh and National Medalist Chioma Enyi. Brodie (pictured) trains with Faye Todd (Level 4), one of Ginninderra's and the ACT's most highly accredited Coaches. Faye trains her squad on Monday and Wednesday nights at the AIS from 4:30pm.
