Event Info

 

The 2013 Down Under Sports Track & Field Meet was the largest to date with USA winning the Team Championship. There were many outstanding performances including the four gold medals won by our 16 year old sprinter Martha Sam of the United States. Martha won the 100m, 200m, 400m and was part of the winning 4 x 100 relay team. On the boy’s side, the top performances came from Tanis Baldwin and Jesse Freeman. Tanis swept the  16-17 year old division in the distance races, winning the 1500m, 3000m and the 2000m steeplechase. Jesse won all three ju-mps in the boys’ 18-19 year old division, taking the long jump, high jump and triple jump.  Australia’s Julian Wruck dominated the discus competition with a throw of 61.28 meters. The entire crowd grew silent in anticipation every time he stepped into the circle, then cheered wildly after watching this amazing athlete perform.
