Commonwealth Games 2018 qualification

Members of UC Ginninderra Athletics Club are gearing up for the 2018 Commonwealth Games as nominations close on 4th December 2017.

Strong performances have already been recorded including Chris Hamer who clocked 2:13:30 at the recent Amsterdam Marathon to claim an automatic qualifier.

Jordan Gusman’s 3:37.97 set in Spain in early June 2017 is 0.4s outside the automatic qualifier, however it is a B Qualifier.

Cameron Crombie’s World Record performance from London Para World Championships in July of 15.95m is nearly two metres over the automatic qualifier.

Jessica Penney’s new Club Record of 6.37m in the Long Jump is just 2cm off a B Qualifier.

Angus Gould’s Long Jump Club Record of 7.71m is only narrowly off his own B Qualifier of 7.82m.

The Tigers are very excited to see how many Australian athletes are selected for the Games which takes place from the 4 Р15 April 2018.
