2018-19 Athletics ACT Championships

The 2018-19 Athletics ACT Championships was held at the AIS over the weekend, 8th to 10th February 2019. This event is one of the ‘premier’ athletics events in Australia with a huge number of local and interstate athletes looking for qualifying performances for the National Championships in March.

Among the 728 participating athletes were the following talented athletes representing Ginninderra Athletics Club. There was many Personal Bests (PBs) and plenty of podium finishes too.

A number of our competitors were first-time entrants to an AACT event which is marvellous news for the sport that Ginninderra is able to help promote and encourage athletes transitioning to Red Track Athletics.

Eight Club Records were lowered including Stephen Fraser's new U20 Discus Record (43.74) that broke the previous effort set by Greg Mace in season 93-94. Sidney Shaw broke the 3000m Walk record (17:11.70) in the U16s joining an elite list of athletes in our senior walkers. Hayden Todd continued his season of record breaking this time in the 2000m Steeplechase (7:03.52). Augustine Nketia (Junior) broke the U18 400m Record (51.21) which follows his U16 record in the same event last December and Mitchall Anderson's 5.99m in the Long Jump. In the Masters, Mark Rossiter (11.68) and Ken Telfer (12.17) both ran super fast to beat their respective age records on Saturday as did Cameron Crombie (11.81) in the Mens 30-34 Shot Put.

A big call-out goes to Mitchall Anderson  our Albury-based member who traveled to the championships for the third time this season and came away with four gold medals, his biggest and best haul from a State Championship.

Our big contingent of para-athletes (AWD - Athletes with a Disability) at these championships did outstanding. Amalie Leslie won 6 gold medals, while her more experienced team-mates Eden Thomas (3 medals) and Cameron Crombie (dual gold as an able-bodied thrower) also enjoyed the weekend's activities.

Jaydon Page (T47) also had an outstanding championship where he competed as a para-athlete as well in the able-bodied competition. Jaydon finished with a silver medal in the able-bodied U16 100m Final and set a new PB time of 12.06s.

A number of our athletes earned auto-selection to Nationals by placing in the top two ACT athletes at the Champs. A number of others also earned national qualifying performances to compete in Sydney  as well. Athletics ACT will name their Nationals team soon.

Among our auto-qualifiers was Vivian Williams in the blue-ribbon Open Men 100m (3rd) and 200m (2nd) events. Vivian has qualified in both events and will compete in his first Australian National Championships. Vivian ran a new PB in the 100m (10.58s) on his way to his first-ever ACT Championship Medal.

Our youngest members, two eleven-year olds competing in the U14 Girls competition did amazingly with Emma Vermeulen (gold) and Charlotte Fowler (two silver) enjoying their first foray into AACT Championship. Owen Toyne who's not far off the girls age, came away with his own dual medals from the three day event.

1 December – AACT Club Relays Red Track Meet

The seventh Athletics ACT (AACT) Red Track Meet for Summer Series 2018/19 was held on Saturday 1st December 2018 at the AIS.

The feature of this Meet was the AACT Club Relay event where Ginninderra Athletics was well represented by almost 50 teams - more than any other club. Woden Thunder were also very well represented and they provided plenty of wonderful and friendly competition in most events.

There was a little bit of controversy with a number of our teams. More to follow on this.

Congratulation go to the following athletes who represented Ginninderra Athletics at this weekend's Meet.

The Club won 12 Gold, 12 Silver and 4 Bronze placings across all ages (14-16, 18-20, and Open/Masters).

Among the notable performances was the Open Men in the club ribbon 4x100m Relay where our team pipped the previously undefeated Woden Thunder. It was an especially sweet result as the team featured two of our up and coming 16M sprinters, one 18M and a 22 year old. Our Open Women's team finished second and didn't have anyone over the age of twenty in the team.

All the teams were bolstered and supported by a magnificent number of our Little Athletes from Endurance Runners, Walkers and Sprinters alike.

Amongst the relays there was also some field events with Stephen Fraser throwing a new club record in the Hammer Throw of 43.31m. Stephen has been in excellent form in all throwing disciplines this season.

Amalie Leslie may have also broken an ACT Para Record and we are awaiting confirmation of the performance!!

We also welcomed Fraser Hawkins our newest Open Male who enjoyed a strong showing in the High Jump 1.80m and Long Jump 6.03m. Fraser is only 10cm off the club record in the High Jump which is very exciting for our talented junior High Jumpers to aspire too.

24 November 2018 – Red Track Meet

The sixth Athletics ACT (AACT) Red Track Meet for Summer Series 2018/19 was held on Saturday 24th November 2018 at the AIS and Friday the 23rd November at Woden (throwers only meet).

Congratulations to the following athletes who represented Ginninderra Athletics at this weekend's Meet.

The notable performances were the handheld 100m times. These cannot be used for records however plenty of promise being shown by the Club's sprinters, especially Edward Nketia's 9.90s.

The 1500m runners also did very well with both the Noor brothers coming very close to the long held club records in their respective ages.

Luke Allard pulled off a new Personal Best in his 400m which is a great accomplishment given the wind conditions.

There was also some star power with para World Champions Scott Reardon and our own Cameron Crombie in action. This gave the younger athletes plenty of inspiration in their respective events.
