Message from the President – Daegu 2017

Congratulations to the Australian Masters Athletes who represented our country at the World Masters Indoor Athletics Championships in Daegu from 19th -25th March. They certainly did our sport proud picking up medals on the track, in jumps and throws as well as in the non stadia events. Incredibly they finished on top of the medal tally with more gold and more medals than any other country even though they had less athletes than some.

Congratulations to all on their participation and medal achievements with particular note of the world records set by W65 Heather Carr in the 3000m walk, W65 Jenny Flynn in the 400m and W70 Lavinia Petrie in the 3000m run.  A total of twenty four world records were set at the Championships.
