2019 Coles ACT Champs squad results

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A superb weekend of athletics has wrapped up in Canberra with 3 exciting days of competition at the Coles 2019 ACT Athletics Championships.

The squad was represented by 14 athletes and we witnessed multiple PB’s and a medal tally of 24 including – 15 Gold, 3 Silver and 6 Bronze. It was also fantastic to see so many of the squad who weren’t competing out there supporting everyone.

Thank you to ACT Athletics and all officials, volunteers and helpers for their contribution to another hugely successful event. I am proud to see our association’s showcase event being so well supported with over 700 athletes entered this year.
