He’s Done It Again….
Adam Farlow only knows one way, and that’s to race hard!
At the ACT Combined Event Championships on 12 January 2019, Adam competed in the Allcomers 60m Sprint. He crossed the line in 7.21 seconds, equalling the Australian Record in the M35 category of Masters Athletics. The record was previously set in 2012 by Robert Vidler (VIC).
Adam, one of our Club Vice Captains, leads by example and is testimony that age really is no barrier!
CONGRATULATIONS Adam on achieving another Australian Record!!
Club Captain Achieving his Dreams
Age is no barrier to Woden Club Captain, Adam Farlow. Just a few days after his 35th birthday, Adam sprinted into the record books during the 200m Athletics Australia race at the 2018 ACT Combined Events Championships.
His time of 21.93 shaved three one hundredths of a second off the previous 200m record of 21.96 set in January 2017, making Adam the new Australian 200m record holder in the Masters Men’s 35-39 age category!
A great achievement and one Adam was very proud of but he did not stop there. Adam’s next goal was to shave a tenth or two of a second off his new Australian Record.
It didn’t take long……
Just two weeks later at the 2018 ACT Track & Field Championships, Adam ran 21.80 in the final of the Open Men’s 200m. Not only did Adam improve on his current Australian Record, he also became the ACT Men’s Open 200m Champion!
This was on the back of the previous day’s effort running 10.90 to become the ACT Men’s Open 100m Champion as well!
Adam’s belief is that regardless of age, people can achieve their dreams if they simply just try…….
Well said Adam! You are a great inspiration to athletes of all ages – CONGRATULATIONS!
