World Athletics Indoor Championships Belgrade

World Athletics Indoor Championships Belgrade

4 Medals – 1 Silver and 3 Bronze 

5 Area Indoor Records

11 Top 8 Finishes

An incredible result for Oceania at the 2022 World Athletics Indoor Championships – Belgrade, Serbia.

Australia claimed two medals, with high jumper Eleanor Patterson soaring to silver and Ash Moloney claiming back-to-back global bronze. New Zealand claimed 2 Medals with Tom Walsh continuing his bronze reign, and Hamish Kerr became the first New Zealander to win a global (world championships or Olympic) high jump medal with a magnificent bronze.

Patterson etched her name into the history books for the second time this year, when she claimed a silver medal and recorded a new Australian indoor record in the women’s high jump. 

Patterson cleared the 2.00m milestone for the first time, adding a centimetre to the indoor record she set last month. Although she put up a strong fight, Ukraine’s Yaroslava Mahuchikh, took the title with a 2.02m clearance, dedicating her emotional victory to her country.

Ash Moloney claimed back-to-back global bronze and a new national record to match, securing 6,344 points in the seven-event heptathlon. Moloney went into Day 2 of the competition in third place, but with a narrow gap between himself and fourth and fifth place, the bronze medallist was forced to push through pain in his knee to clinch the victory.

A brilliant fourth successive World Indoor podium finish for Tom Walsh who takes bronze with an Oceania Indoor record of 22.31m in Belgrade, Serbia. Tom added a bronze medal to his previous golds (2016, 2018) and bronze (2014). 

Hamish Kerr matched his national outdoor record of 2.31m to make history at the 2022 World Indoor Championship in Belgrade and become the first New Zealander to win a global (world championships or Olympic) high jump medal with a magnificent bronze.
