Australian Masters Nationals 2010

The AMA championships are over for another year. This year was Perth, the weather was great, the track was fast and the meet ran smoothly.
Already this season, some fast 100m times had been run at the new WA Athletics Stadium, by Patrick Johnson 10.18 and Aaron Rouge-Serrett in 10.17. So I was looking forward to this. I have been told it is a form of Mondo, but the track only has a 3 year life span.

WMG 2009 Wrap Up

Well the World Masters Games is over, and sadly for myself I finished with no medals. At least I made the 100m and 200m finals, but in both cases finished 4th. Lack of preparation told in both finals. But hey, others put in the work and got the result. Because of the event timetabling, most of the short sprinters (including myself) dropped out of the 400m. Maybe this was a mistake.

Organisation of the meet was a bit chaotic. Communication between officals and non English speakers caused trouble, and some groups of athletes seemed to have difficulty understanding the need to queue at check in.

My Results

100m.
Heat: 11.35 (+1.0) 2nd.
Final: 11.49 (+0.5) 4th.
200m.
Heat: 23.58 (+0.5) 3rd.
Final: 23.32 (NWI) 4th.
400m.
Heat: DNS.

YouTube has video of the 200m final. I am 2nd from the inside.

I am inspired to give it a real shot over the coming summer.
