What a great day at the Domain today for the Tasmanian Open & Under 18 Championships today.
Huge thank you to those who put their hand up to help out at the numerous High Jump sessions which we were responsible for today, as well as helping out in numerous roles at other events across the day.
There were also some great performances and huge PBs on the track and in the field, some came with medals, and others just with smiles.
We won't try and list all the individual results, as it would take too long, but it was awesome to finish the day with a great win in the Open Women's 4 x 100m Relay, in a new Tasmanian Open Allcomers Club Record of 48.09, after an awesome race against a fast finishing North West team.
There have been a few minor changes to the timetable for the weekend's Tasmanian Open Track & Field Championships and we are still looking for a few people to help out on the various High Jump sessions.
Thanks to those who have already offered to help out (Michael, Maree, Maureen & Mel), but we still have quite a few spots, and we can take people even if their name doesn't start with M 🙂 )
The sessions are as follows, so please let us know either by message or email which sessions you can help out with;
Saturday; 10:30 Masters Men 11:45 U/15/16 CE Girls 1.15 U/17/18 CE Girls 2.45 U/15/16 CE Boys 4.00 U/17/18 CE Boys 6.00 Open Men/Women

And as the excitement of State and Territory Athletics Championships going on around Australia over the past few (and next few weeks), we follow on from Kiani ALLEN winning the Western Australian 100m Championship last weekend, with Jane HICKE heading to Sydney this weekend to hopefully compete in the Sydney Track Classic tomorrow night, but warming up tonight by taking the NSW U/20 100m Hurdles Championship in 14.33. Doesn't that polo look awesome atop the podium 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Looking like a perfect morning for a fun run in Hobart today. Good luck to all who are taking part in the Bank of us Run The Bridge this morning, whether it be the 10km, 5km, or 1km. Have fun and enjoy the experience of crossing the bridge by the traditional form of transport 🙂 (Well, unless you are doing the 1km, we prefer you don't end up on the bridge).
Whilst it was a great day at the Domain with the feared smoke and air pollution staying away, it was an even bigger day in Melbourne for one of our youngest members.
Congratulations to Isaac DIXON who traveled to Melbourne to compete in the Little Athletics Victoria Multi Event in the U/11, and whilst he was ineligible to receive a medal, he scored the highest points of all competitors, and stood proudly on the top of the podium beside the Victorian champion. ...

Great to see see former Eastern Suburbs junior athlete, and Commonwealth Games medalist Kaity FASSINA offering advise to some of Tasmania's juniors, including Eastern Suburbs athletes Iasbella HIPPEL, Keeley BURNS and Rachel HOSIE.A great way to start of the day four of the Target Talent Program, as Commonwealth Games silver medallist Kaity Fassina gave a presentation to the athletes.
Her key discussion points were around gratitude for those who support you, keeping the study going, to never give up, look for the positives from the setbacks. Thanks Kaity for the talk!
An awesome day at the Domain today for Rd 11 of Interclub, and great to see some new and returning faces. Also great to see a team in the 4 x 400, with a rather wide range of heights making up the team 🙂
Good luck to all taking part at Cadbury tomorrow, and thanks also to all those who are helping out across the course. ... See MoreSee Less
Another great day at the Domain today for Athletics South's Annual Reunion Day. Congratulations to our Eastern Suburbs winners of named events, Kiani ALLEN in the Froggy Wise Memorial 100m, Caitlin STALKER in the Jo Miller-Cubit Long Jump, and Rachel HOSIE in the McDonald Family Discus.
The day was then wrapped up with the Blake Family 400m Handicaps, which were run as a combined race. This made for a great finish, with 2 of our younger athletes, Olivia JONES and Isaac DIXON pushing each other to big PBs to claim the respective trophies, just ahead of another very close finish between Aaron Humphrey and Keeley Burns.
And as we enter the third and final day of what has been a successful Australian Junior Championships, it is Isabella HIPPEL getting things under way at 9.30 with the U/16 Shot Put, and then again at 12.30 with the U/18 Shot Put, in which she is joined by Rachel HOSIE.
