2019 Sydney Track Classic and NSW Junior Championships

The premier event of the NSW Athletics Calendar was held on the weekend at Sydney Olympic Park. Among the hundreds of talented athletes competing for their clubs were some of Ginninderra's best including Edward Nketia, Vivian Williams, Augustine Nketia, Nicholas Donaldson, Jacob Davill and Austin Tetteh.

Edward and Vivian lit up the track in the Open Mens 100m with Vivian running a very fast 10.83s in the Heats to narrowly miss the final. Edward continued his outstanding season with another stand out performance in finishing narrowly second to Jack Hale by 0.01s in the final. Edward's time of 10.36s is a new club record in the Under 20M.

Another of the Club's Record Holders Jordan Gusman took out the Men's 5000m Final winning in 13:29.47 beating race favourite Stewart McSweyn by 3 seconds.

Ginninderra was also well represented at the NSW Junior Championships with Augustine Nketia finishing 3rd in the U17M 400m in 49.44s - a new U18M Club Record. Augustine also ran very well in the 200m to finish with 23.79s.

Austin Tetteh ran splendidly in the U17M 100m making the final with a time of 11.32s - a new Club Record. Austin backed up on the Sunday and ran 22.94s in the 200m final to come home with a silver medal.

Nicholas Donaldson wasn't to be outdone also making the U18M final running a new Personal Best of 11.64s.

Jacob Davill ran strongly in the U17M 800m final finishing with a time of 2:01.34 to come 5th overall - a new club record.

Overall some great times in Sydney and all is looking good for UC Ginninderra's assault on Nationals in March.

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.
