The Accor Sydney Half took on a different feel with the partnership of Parkinson’s Unity turning the race into an event with a great atmosphere, additional events, fund raising for an important charity, all in a festival like atmosphere. Over $65,000 was raised for Parkinson research, awareness and family support.

August CEO Message

Welcome everyone to the CEO report for August.  I hope that you enjoyed the Olympics and that you can now get a decent night's sleep.
 

Everyone will have their favourite moments from Rio, but for me the performance of Ella Nelson in coming 1/100th of a second from an Olympic final in the 200m epitomised what this campaign was about: young athletes announcing themselves not only to Australia but the world.  If you haven't already done so, I'd recommend a quick read of David Tarbotton's excellent piece on the performances of Australia's female athletes. You can read the article here.

Rio 2016 Wrap

Rio 2016 Wrap

It has been a successful campaign for Australia’s 60-strong athletics section at Rio 2016, with the team delivering two medals and a further seven top-eight performances to set the tone for an exhilarating Olympic cycle through to Tokyo 2020.
"It has been an exciting campaign and I am proud of the way in which our athletics team has performed at these Olympic Games. Obviously, it would have been fantastic to see those two fourths and four ninths become medals and top-eight performances respectively, but to close this event with two medals to Jared Tallent and Dane Bird-Smith is a solid result,” Craig Hilliard, the Athletics Section Head Coach, said.
