All Schools Championships 2011

posted 4 Dec 2011, 18:29 by Race Walking SA - SARWC
Congratulations on a huge effort from our SA walkers. It was a great experience for our young folk and I observed positive signs with the athletes making moves and thinking strategically through the race. Six Athletics Australia judges littered the track within the 400m and none of our athletes received any yellow or red cards. With three in the field we achieved;

3rd and Bronze Medallist Anna Cross in the U14 3Km @15:25:80. A huge PB formally 16:09.
7th with Alix Harlington in the U14 3Km @15:23:18. A huge PB formally 16:03.
8th with Piper Douglas in the U16 3Km @16:54:88. A great effort from Piper in the heat of the day on the most humid day.

A big thank you to Bob Cruise for his guidance and encouragement during the event, Allegra Steele for managing our athletes and Jared and Claire Tallent for meeting with our walkers before the race and cheering them on during the race.

I would like to pass on personal thankyous to Bob Cruise for Anna and Piper and to Megan Szirom for Alix. Their coaching, guidance and programs leading up to this event played a big part in their success.
