2017 World Masters Games

 

The 2017 World Masters Games were held in April in Auckland, New Zealand.

A small contingent of Woden athletes competed at the Games with some fantastic results!

 

Our Club Captain Adam Farlow was on fire with golden wins in his age division for the Men’s 100m, 200m, 400m and High Jump and a silver in the Men’s Long Jump.

Adam also anchored the Australia “A” team in the Men’s 4 x 100m Relay (U160 division) to not only win the Relay but set a new Australian record of 43.96 as well!

 

Fellow Woden athlete Jonathan Stefaniak was fourth in his age division for the Men’s 200m and sixth in the 400m.

Jonathan and Adam then teamed up as part of the Australia “A” Men’s 4 x 400m Relay (U160 division) to bring home the gold and shatter the existing Australian record with a time of 3:27.37.

 

A fabulous effort from our athletes – CONGRATULATIONS!

 

There was a great article recently in the Canberra Times about Adam and why he returned to athletics after 11 years away.
