To secure her selection for the Commonwealth Games, Georgia’s race plan was to make the race fast and unrelenting. Going through the first lap in 59.2, Georgia destroyed the hopes of half the field. By the 600m point, the field was scattered. At 700m, Georgia’s brave front running began to wear on her and by midway down the straight Brittany McGowan (three-time National Champion) passed her as did Angela Petty (NZ Champion).
Georgia pushed herself to the limit to cross the line in 3rd (2nd Australian) in 2.02.09. As the second Australian across the line, and having achieved an “A” qualifier through the season, her position in the Australian Commonwealth Games team was assured.
