Last season saw a number of long standing records get broken by a long string of well deserving Ginninderra Athletes.
It all started on the 2nd of November 2013 when Canberra's biggest athletics meet featuring over 500 athletes from across the ACT converge on Charnwood Oval for the Belconnen Carnival. It was however only Ginninderra athletes who managed to break records running as far back as 1990!
Those lucky Tigers who now hold Carnival Records include Jess Hynes, Mackenzie Francis, Matt Ikoro, Matilda James, Harry Baker, Chelsea Tobin, Imogen McDonald, Ethan Robards, Charlotte Rauraa, Ben Mitchell, Molly Sturgiss, Charlie Hiskins, Casey Baker, Lauren Robards, Mitch Baker, Imogen Alexander, David Sim, Tristan Vergano, Cameron Best, Tori Hopkins, Yanke Samura-Liddiard, Matt Walters, Joel Blackmore, Lucy Ferry, Laura Scollen-Smith, Adrienne Nunn, Jack Davidson, Jethro Heathwood, David Power and Megan Peters.
Then over the season every Tiger recorded PBs week-in-week-out and a number of all time records fell. Among the latest record breakers including those above are Maja Dodt, Nathalie Cerritelli, Dana Deklin, Santal Tacconi, Nick Ashmore, Andrew McFarlane, Lisa Hutchinson and Sascha Rauraa.
2013-14 was a big season and with the excitement of the Commonwealth Games there is surely to be a lot more personal bests and the odd club record that will get shaken this year. Join Ginninderra and make 2014 your year!
