Queanbeyan Gift 2017


What a day for Woden Thunder at the Queanbeyan Gift on Saturday 9 December!

In the Open Women’s 120m Gift, Grace Brennan (red bib) backed up from 2016 with another second placing, this time running off a backmarker. Her time of 13.86 was narrowly beaten by Andrea Thompson who took out the race in 13.60.  Although from the Queanbeyan Club, Andrea is coached by Woden’s own Phil Alchin.

In the Open Men’s 120m Gift, Angus Proudfoot ran second in a time of 12.27 with Nathan McNab just a whisker behind in 12.28 to take third place. The eventual winner of the Men’s Gift was Michael Hanna from Sydney.

Angus had a busy day – not only did he run heats, semis and a final in the Gift, he also ran heats and a final in the Novice Vets race which he won in a time of 12.46!

A fabulous effort by our athletes – congratulations to all!
