Track & Field Down Under

Over the last few weeks I have had the opportunity to coach/advise a talented international runner and good friend, Jayden Russ. Jayden is working full time but has found the time & energy to pursue his athletic goals at a high level. He is preparing for the 1500 meters at the Australian National Championships in three weeks. As part of his preparation Jayden ran the 1500 at Queensland Championships and had a very solid showing, easily qualifying for the final on Friday and leading within the last 200 meters on Saturday. Here are the results from Saturday’s final: Queensland Sport & Athletics Centre - Site License Queensland Open & AWD Championships (Incorporating Under 23 Championships) State Athletics Facility, QSAC, Nathan - 25/03/2011 to 27/03/2 Event 32 Men 1500 Meter Run Open =============================================================== Name Age Team Finals =============================================================== Finals 1 Daniel Bulmer * 21 Gcv 3:52.87 2 Jayden Russ 26 Qe2 3:53.09 3 Peter Bock 29 Mar 3:54.77 4 Andrew Crew 31 Mar 3:57.50 5 Matthew Hawke * 21 Unq 4:02.05 6 Jordan Thomas 19 Qe2 4:04.62 7 Gavin Keight 29 Qe2 4:05.60 8 Grant Williams* 22 Unq 4:08.27 9 Veherney Babob 19 Png 4:20.16 -- Luke Eastwell 18 Gcv DNF Well done Jayden!
