ACT Juniors Return with 29 Medals #AJAC


Extreme heat was no barrier for the performance of the 113 ACT junior athletes who last weekend competed in the 56th Australian Junior Championships at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre. The 5 day championships saw ACT athletes collect an impressive 11 gold, 10 silver’s and 8 bronze totalling 29 medals, with an additional 2 silver medals coming 2 weeks earlier from Australian Junior Combined Championships in Melbourne.


There were so many strong performances from ACT athletes but performances of note include:

·         Emma Dunn – Gold in both the U16 800m & U16 1500m

·         Keely Small – Gold in the U18 800m in a new Meet Record

·         Tom Palfrey – Gold in the U16 1500m in a new Meet Record

·         Ruan Hennig – Collecting a trifecta of medals with gold in the U14 Shot Put, silver in the U14 Hammer and bronze in the U14 Javelin.


A special mention must go to our 3 team managers; Kim Sturgiss, Andrew Eddowes, Jonathan Stefaniak and team physio, Natasha Cole of Torque Physiotherapy who did an excellent job looking after such a large team across 5 days.

List of Team ACT medallists and those who came so close finishing fourth is below.
