Emerging from the competition inactivity which has restricted us since March, I am please to report some early highlights:

* CALLUM DAVIES 3rd in Steigen Mile. An initiative requiring participants to perform a one mile time trial with video evidence and witnesses on a measured track, Callum took a second off his PB to record 4.01 and earn some major $US. Thankyou Brendan Press/Ryan Powell for pacing & Aidan Hobbs for recording.

* QA named ISABELLA HARTE & BRIDGET MORRISSEY in its TTP Squad while TQ selected MADISON TURNER & DANIEL PRINSLOO (both T-Rex) in its 2020 State Junior Team.

* LACHLAN RAYNER starred at GPSX with 3rd in the 14yrs.

* JAXON PATERSON-WRIGHT (Open) & ZAHN SPIES (12) posted impressive victories at AICX.

* DESTINEE PICKVANCE won the TASX (12yrs) despite running up as an 11 year-old.

* ADDISON HOUSLIP, a product of Starfish Fitness, PB’d the 5km at Gold Coast Running Festival on a long course (20.16) a day after her QJX bronze. Not bad for an 11!!!
