January has been busy with lots of events and HEAPS of Athletics East athletes out there competing. We have had athletes racing everything from local rotary meets through to Championship events with PBs and club records falling at each meet.
Our juniors again are dominating with records in the sprints not hanging around very long. In our senior divisions our middle distance athletes are rewriting the records books as well. Kevin O’Brien is continuing on from his great cross country season to set new club records across the mile with long time AE athlete Mark Gregory re-writing the record books in the same event for the 40+ category.
New recruit Victoria Mitchell already has two records to her name in two races, taking the women’s open mile and 3km records.
