General comments

Extremely windy, (tail wind sprint events). Track downhill from finish to 300m and uphill final 150m             


(1)    Several runners, having qualified for later semi finals and finals, approached the  stewards/handicappers asking for permission to run in unrelated events. Due to lack of entries this was allowed but it was impressed upon runners that it was a “once only” occurrence.

(2)Athletes Craig Foley (120mts), and  Carl McMeel (300m W/M) incurred injuries in their events.        They can compete in 28 days, or 14 days with the appropriate medical certificate.
