Melbourne World Challenge

Hi guys!

So tonight is the final of the Athletics Australia Tour Meet in Melbourne, the Melbourne World Challenge! I am racing in the 400m which is on at 6:05pm tonight. The field is pretty similar to a national final (including myself, National Champ Morgan Mitchell, and Glasgow relay team members Caitlin Sargent, Jess Gulli and Lyndsay Pekin) so I'm sure it's going to be a fast and very exciting race! We have 5 girls who represented Australia at last years Commonwealth Games, plus the seasoned Tamsyn Lewis-Manou is making a return to racing after having a baby last year! 

After my 800m Personal Best last weekend I am keen to see how I'll go over the one lap, and hopefully get close to the World Championships qualifying time of 52:00 seconds.

As I'm sure all of you are as excited as I am about this race, here are your options to watch!

1. Head out to Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park, Melbourne at 5.30pm for all the action! Tickets are available at the gate. The sun is out so it will be a great afternoon of athletics!

2. Head online to for the full coverage and very entertaining Live Stream! Again my race is on at 6.05pm!

Watch out for me in Lane 6 donning the white, blue and gold Sydney University Athletics Club uniform!


Hope to see you out there or through your computer screen!
