Sadly it is the end of the season. We look forward to seeing you all out at ASA for the summer season.

Thank you to everyone that attended the AGM, forum and presentation. A special thank you to our committee, judges, officials and athletes for a fantastic winter season.

It was fantastic to have three Olympians Tanya Holliday, Jared and Claire Tallent out for the presentations. Thank you for your time, I know the athletes are inspired by your achievements, and best of luck Jared in China in a few weeks time.

Congratulations to Tonia Lewry on being awarding life membership to Athletics SA, and thank you to Joe Stevens for attending and presenting at the SARWC presentation.
