Helen Stanley 2019 Australian Masters Athletics National Championships Cross-Country Women 60-64

On the final day of competition at the 2019 Australian Masters Athletics Championships, Helen Stanley has come away with yet another medal; Bronze in the 8K Cross Country (Women 60-64) National Championships, taking her total tally to three medals from three races over four days. An impressive feat. Congratulations Helen!

In Helen’s own words: “A very technical hilly course with many short and sharp ups and downs followed by tight turns. The competition was strong and it was fantastic to catch up with racing buddies local and interstate. I always find it particularly exciting and inspiring to see athletes from my Venue such as Peter LeGet (85) and Bryan Mee (80) running events like this, especially backing up from the 5000m the day before.”
