In a solo run at AACT interclub Lauren Boden has opened up with her first 400m Hurdles of the season in a blistering time of 56.62 which is an Olympic Games “B” qualifier.
“I have never broken 57 in my first run for the season so to do it tonight is awesome” Boden explained. The fact she has opened up with her first run slightly earlier due to the earlier Olympic trials is even better.
Boden will next run at the Brisbane track classic on the 14th January in the 4 x 400m relay and will then run over the 400m Hurdles again at the Hunter track classic on the 21st January.
In other results Melissa Breen carried her great form from the Tasmanian gift carnival running a quick 7.33 in the 60m (1.5w). Tom Burbidge after a slow start finished home too strongly in the 400m running 48.45 with training partners Jesse Matthews (50.08) and Luke Storta (50.33) wnd and 3rd. Finally after making some errors in the 400m Hurdles Rachael Carnegie competed in the 200m running strongly in a mixed race to clock 25.47 (2.4w)
