Fremantle Gazette - - SPORT -

EMERG­ING Cockburn ath­lete Ri­ley Wood has made it back-to-back vic­to­ries in the State Cham­pi­onships for road walk­ing in his di­vi­sion.

Wood claimed gold in the un­der-12 2km road walk at the WA Road Walk­ing and Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onships, held in Bi­bra Lake.

His win fol­lowed on from his success in the same event last year, when he won gold in the un­der-11 cham­pi­onship race.

Wood was not the only Cockburn Lit­tle Ath­let­ics mem­ber to place well at the event, with three oth­ers also tak­ing home medals.

Seth Heifner won sil­ver in un­der-14 road walk, while Jonas Gvozdin won bronze in the un­der-9 road walk and Aca­cia Red­man sil­ver in the un­der-11 cross coun­try.

With the win­ter sea­son fin­ished, reg­is­tra­tions are open for the sum­mer com­pe­ti­tion, from Oc­to­berMarch.
