Front running efforts from Zac Facioni and Rose Davies were rewarded with meet records at the NSW 3000m Championships at the Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre Warm Up Track.

21-year-old Facioni, who will return shortly to his Wake Forest University base for NCAA competition, covered the final 800m in 2:03 to record a new personal best of 7:51.61. In second was James Nipperess (7:55.79), who bettered his personal best set ten years ago, with Jye Edwards third (7:56.58).

Davies, the national 10,000m bronze medalist, showed the field a clean pair of heels to win in 9:00.17. The 20-year-old beat home Lauren Reid (9:08.00) and 15-year-old Imogen Stewart (9:12.25), who set a NSW Under 16 record.

The previous meet records were held by Jordan Gusman (7:52.82 in 2017) and Lisa Corrigan (9:00.34 in 2006).

The women’s race also saw a return to competition from Olympic 5000m and 10000m top 10 finisher Eloise Wellings following a maternity break, with a 9:21 run for 6th place.
