All Schools Invitational 2011

posted 23 Oct 2011, 15:53 by Race Walking SA - SARWC
The all schools this year gained the interest of 8 race walkers with 6 from the SARWC. It was a warm day and very humid within Santos Stadium which may have slowed our athletes a little however still some good times recorded. It was exciting to see Anna and Piper race to the finish recording the same finishing time of 16:46.10 for the 3km. Jordan McKenna who is registered with Elizabeth Little Athletics competed in his first 5km race which was a huge effort. Jordan has been interested in race walking for a few years now and is looking to join SARWC next season so hopefully we can look forward to a new member. Now we wait to see if any of our athletes are selected for the state team to compete in Brisbane during December.

We also took the opportunity to present the trophies to those that could not make it to the quiz night. Bob was on hand to perform the presentation which was fitting as all the athletes were those that train under Bob.

Congratulations to all the athletes that participated and represented their school and race walking. Pictures and results are available here.
