Not content with having a fabulous Australian National titles with bringing home a bag of medals to add to her already impressive list, Mary Thomas finished the season off with a bang. In conjunction with the National Titles, the Australian Masters conduct their awards evening, and it was here that Mary received the highest award, defeating all throwers both male and female, to capture the Masters Thrower of the Year Award.
Not content with this top award, the NSW Masters nominated her to Athletics NSW as their choice of Thrower of the Year, and although not present at the dinner last weekend, Mary has also now taken out this award. Spending a few more weeks in Adelaide to rest up the feet, Mary will be delighted with this award, as she was with the Masters National Award.
IBS congratulates and salutes you Mary Thomas on an outstanding season, just keep on moving along; age shall not weary you,
