Athletics Australia’s Life Memberships awarded

Last week Athletics Australia has awarded two life memberships to Len Johnson from Victoria and  Laurie Keaton from NSWLen Johnson’s association with athletics started in  the early 1970s when he began to train as a distance runner in Melbourne. As an athlete, he would say his best performance was in 1978 in Fukuoka, Len ran 2:19.32 – then the seventh fastest time ever run by an Australian in the marathon.

Laurie Keaton’s first involvement with athletics was in 1964 as manager for one of the New South Wales high school zones, and by 1970 he was on the founding committee for what has now become the NSW All Schools Championships. In 2017 Laurie continues to make his contribution to athletics at all levels. Not only for major championships but also for many schools meets (primary and high school).
