Masters Athletes Throwing their Weight Around
After a successful trial event earlier in May this year, NSW Masters hosted another official Indoor Throws meet at the Il Cadore Equestrian Centre Somersby, on Sunday 3 November.
The Weight Throw and Shot Put were on offer, with the addition of the new Super Weight throw event. A small, but keen group of throwers gathered about setting 19 Australian Indoor Throws records.
This is a first for Australian Masters Athletics, being able to break indoor records without travelling overseas. We plan to make this event a regular fixture, possibly purchasing another circle and an indoor throwing cage. We are hoping that in 2020 we can officially host an Australian Indoors Throws Championships.
It was great to see some new faces at this meet, especially athletes from NSW, the ACT and Queensland.
NSWMA will send in the claims for the NSW and AUSTRALIAN records, updating the World Rankings site.
