Peter Bol has gone quicker than any Australian in Australia with his 1:44.62 win at the Oceania Athletics meet at Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast on Saturday 12th June 2021. Peter’s record result, betters the previous mark set by St. Kevin’s Peter Bourke of 1:44.78. Also in action at Runaway Bay was Brad Mathas who was well placed with 120m to go and finished with 1:46.65.
Nellie Mitchell has also lowered her own National Record in the T13 1500m, running 4:53.18, lowering her previous record by half-a-second. We all hope that Nellie can get the right race pace to allow her to dip under the 4:50 target to qualify for Tokyo. Also competing at Runaway Bay was Jackson Bennett in the 100m, running 11.24sec (+2.5)
