WMA Athletes of the year
Some great news for Masters Athletics in WA. Many congratulations to Lyn and David:
Lyn Ventris from WA is the Best Masters Athlete in the World in the Walks Category
Lyn Ventris (W60) won three gold medals at the World Championships at Malaga in the 5km track walk, 10km road walk and 20km road walk setting a world record in the 10km event. Lyn already held the world record in the 5km event from National Championships in Perth. Her feats are remarkable given she has only returned this year to competing successfully after a very long layoff from injuries.
David Carr from WA is Runner up in the Middle Distance Category
David Carr (M85) holds all M85 Australian Records from 400m to 10000m. He also holds the M85 World records for 800m, 1500m, steeplechase and one mile. At the World Championships in Malaga he won gold in the 800m, 1500m and steeplechase and silver in the 400m.
