What a few days for the MBD squad in Sydney!
Congratulations to 2016 National Open Champions.
- Lauren Wells (400m Hurdles) taking her 9th title and locking in Olympic selection.
- Melissa Breen (100m) retaining her title and taking her 6th overall national title
- Leigh Bennett (400m Hurdles) and his first ever at age 30.
This takes the squad total to 21 national open titles in the past 11 years!
To say the whole squad is proud would be a gross understatement. Thank you to all 3 of you for being an inspiration to all in the squad and it is no surprise to see you get this reward for your hard work and dedication.
Special mention also to Sarah Blizzard who topped off her amazing season with a huge PB in the 200m.This is after a 3rd place in the Women’s Stawell Gift last weekend , 2nd in the Stonnington Gift and her first ever sub 12 second 100m in February.
