Middle Distance Squad – Nationals update

Melville Middle Distance went to the National Junior Championships held recently at Olympic Park in Sydney
Our boys Dylan Bailey and Raynor Keane are pictured here after running their 800 finals with gold medal winner and new National champion Kayla Van Der Linden

In hot steamy conditions Kayla set off at a cracking pace and stayed strong to set a new Australian meet record of 2:10.3 in winning her 800m final
It was a super effort to beat out 23 other girls from all across the nation in the U15 age group
I hope to see more of our athletes competing at the Nationals next season
Go the Roar!
