Young run­ner sets a new record

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

ISIS Lit­tle Ath­let­ics is into its third week of com­pe­ti­tion and the cen­tre record for Un­der-16 girls’ 200m was bro­ken on Fri­day night.

The record stood at 28.1 seconds for five years be­fore it was bro­ken by Si­mone Man­ski by 0.2 seconds. Sis­ter Re­becca Man­ski was the pre­vi­ous joint record holder (2009–10), along with Katy Cole (2011–12).

Si­mone is only 0.4 seconds off the 100m U16 girls’ record, which of­fi­cials have no doubt will fall dur­ing the cur­rent sea­son.

A fur­ther 17 per­sonal bests were recorded on the track, with 13 PBs achieved on the field in dis­cus, long jump, shot­put, turbo jav and high jump.

Matthew Haaksma (U16) added an im­pres­sive 6cm to his high jump PB, jumping 136cm. Lach­lan Eschbach (U10) turbo jav PB in­creased by 2.60m (8.38m), while Leti­cia Trapp (U8) im­proved by 10cm in her long jump event.

Michael Ebert (U7) bet­tered his shot­put dis­tance to 3.09m (plus 18cm), with new­comer Cruz Wat­son (U6) throw­ing 8.10m in dis­cus, a mas­sive 3.70m gain.

Lit­tle Ath­let­ics runs com­pe­ti­tion nights ev­ery Fri­day at the Childers Show­ground dur­ing the spring and sum­mer months from 5.30pm on­wards.

If you are not sure whether ath­let­ics is for you, it of­fers a two-week try-out pe­riod.

Train­ing ses­sions are held at the show­grounds on Tues­day af­ter­noons from 4–5pm for ath­letes who wish to im­prove their skill level.

This Satur­day will see ath­letes com­pete in the Spring Car­ni­val be­ing held at theWest Bund­aberg grounds for U7–U17, with a free su­per clinic for age groups U9–U17 on the fol­low­ing two days.

Fur­ther de­tails and reg­is­tra­tion forms for the su­per clinic can be ob­tained at lit­tleath­let­ics.com.au.

The club takes a one-week break for the hol­i­days, re­turn­ing on Oc­to­ber 3, run­ning aWeek 4 pro­gram.
