Local Tathra girl Chloe Jamieson dominated the hurdles events in the 15 years age group at the NSW All Schools Championships held in Sydney 6th-8th November taking gold in the 90m Hurdles and 200m Hurdles.
In the heats 200m Hurdles she ran a personal best of 27.67 (-0.5w) and set a new Australian and NSW Record in the process.
Chloe then backed this up 2 hours later running even faster to again lower the Australian record to 27.54 into a headwind of -0.9. The national record was 27.91 held by Jessica Gulli who represented Australia at the World Youth (2005) World Juniors (2006) Championships.
Chloe stated that “all is looking good for nationals” after her victory margin of over 2 seconds in the final.
Earlier in the meet Chloe won the 90m Hurdles in time of 12.73 (0.1w) which was almost half a second faster then second (13.20). Her time was also only 0.08 from the State Record held by outstanding junior hurdler Carly Rodger.
Congratulations also goes to her father Kel who does the supervision of Chloe’s training at home.
Chloe will now set her sights towards the Australian All School championships (4th-6th December) in Hobart where she will contest the Under 16 200m Hurdles and also run up an age group in the under 17 400m Hurdles. Her coach Matt Beckenham is very excited about Chloe stepping up to the 400m Hurdles saying “she will be up an age group but Chloe has already shown me that she has some wonderful potential in the 400m Hurdles and I really think she has the potential to be one of the Australia’s top hurdlers in years to come.”
In the lead up to Hobart Chloe will also join fellow squad members Lauren Boden (3 time national 400m Hurdles champion) and Melissa Breen (National 200m champion) when they compete at the NSW Relays Championships on the 21-22nd November.
