ZOE IS OFF TO RIO!
Congratulations to new Box Hill member, Zoe Buckman, who has been selected to run for Australia in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. This will be the second Olympics for Zoe, who also ran in the 1500m at the London Olympics four years ago.
Let’s hope that Zoe can have a successful Olympic campaign.
RESULTS FROM BYDGOSZCZ!
Congratulations to Georgia Hansen, Sarah Billings, Kathryn Brooks and Nana Owusu-Afriyie who all performed creditably at the world junior championships in Poland. Sarah Billings ran 2:06.13 to place 3rd in her heat of the 800m and progressed to the semi final, where she ran 2:06.86 to be ranked 14th overall. Georgia Hansen ran 2:09.51 in her 800m heat to miss out qualifying for the semi-finals by just 0.57s. After an injury plagued preparation, Kathryn Brooks threw well in the javelin to finish 16th with a distance of 50.54m. Nana Owusu-Afriyie was a part of the 4x100m relay team that finished 7th in the final in a time of 45.15. We are sure that all of these athletes will have benefited greatly from this experience and go onto even greater things in the future.
