Cuthbert awarded Companion of the Order of Australia

The late Betty Cuthbert was named among the members of Athletics Australia to receive Australia Day honours on Friday. Betty died last year aged 79 after a battle with multiple sclerosis, but now after her death she has been awarded the Companion of the Order of Australia. The four-time Olympic gold medallist was recognised for eminent service to athletics at the national and international level, particularly as a gold medallist at the Melbourne and Tokyo Olympic Games, and as a role model, fundraiser, and advocate for research into a cure for multiple sclerosis.

 

Queen’s Baton Relay Update

On 28th of January the Queen’s Baton began the relay in the NSW region. Since then, the Baton has visited 13 different locations. Two of them being the communities of Coonabarabran and Gunnedah who got to see their sporting legends return to the towns to be part of 2018 Queen’s Baton Relay. 15 Baton bearers, nominated for their positive influence in the community, walked, jogged and paraded with the Queen’s Baton through the streets. One of those Baton bearers, was athletics champion Melinda Gainsford-Taylor, who is known for bringing home silver in the 200m and bronze in the 4x100m during the 1994 Commonwealth Games held in Victoria. It is exciting when the Queen’s Baton Relay comes to your area. To learn when the baton will be coming to your town visit the Queen’s Baton Relay website. The baton is currently in Coffs Harbour.

 

Cooks Classic

Whanganui Cooks Classic was held at the iconic Cooks Gardens track on Tuesday.  The event was the second of the series which started in Wellington on Saturday at the Capital Classic and ends a week later at the Potts Classic in Hastings.

The women’s long jump, the men’s and women’s javelin and the metric mile (1500 metres).
