Blue Stars President Geoff Hynoski has set himself an even greater challenge than the one of President of the club. This coming weekend we will see Geoff take on the challenge of the Sutherland Half Marathon, a great challenge, but one he will surely tackle with the same determination that he has. So far his preparation has been very good, and his whole winter season has been one of taking part in major cross country meets including long and short course events.
Last weekend’s short course run in ANSW State title event, put the icing on the cake for his attempt at the Half marathon this weekend, and we wish him all the best as he tackles yet another challenge in his athletic career.
Time Out for middle distance Darrin
Darrin James will have time out due to an injury that has prevented him from competing at his best. Darrin is certainly among the best 400/800m athletes for his age, and we wish him well and a speedy recovery. He joins Mick Daley who is now recovering from an injury and hopes to be back on track very soon.
Great to See
John Van Stappen stepping out on the track again after yet another injury. Like Darrin, John has had time out but is now preparing for the World Masters Championships in Perth in October/November, and hoping for a full summer season, and hopefully back to his old self.
And then there is Peter Shepherd
Another top masters’ athlete who has suffered injuries and has had to pull out of major events. Peter showed his old self when he tackled the winter series a few weeks back and was impressive over the sprint events. Let’s hope he too has a great summer season.
Newcomers to Masters
Rumours have it that the club will see some new masters’ athletes take to the track this summer, in both male and female. Some have been showing their talents in the winter seriesand can’t wait to do the same this coming summer.
