Vaulters sharp in the West; Basic blasts 11.37 – Results Wrap 21 February 2021

  • 22 February 202122 February 2021

Nina Kennedy and Kurtis Marschall have recorded further Olympic qualifying marks at the WA Championships, while Hana Basic streeted the field in the women’s 100m on the first weekend of the Victorian Championships.

Kennedy cleared 4.70m before having three unsuccessful attempts at 4.82m, which would have been a new Australian record. Elizaveta Parnova was second in 4.40m, with a very close miss at 4.50m.

In the men’s event, Marschall cleared 5.80m before bowing out of the competition when the bar went to 5.90m. South Australia’s Jack Downey cleared 5.40m for second, ahead of Angus Armstrong’s 5.30m.

The headline performance of the first weekend of the Victorian Championships was the dominant victory in the women’s 100m by Hana Basic. The 25-year-old improved her personal best into a slight 0.2 m/s headwind to record 11.37 seconds. The performance moves her to 15th on the Australian all-time list.

Basic’s performance now tops the list of Australia’s emerging 100m stocks this season. It bodes well for a competitive 4x100m quartet now and into the future.

8 athletes sub-11.60 seconds so far this summer:

  • 11.37 seconds: Hana Basic
  • 11.47 seconds: Celeste Mucci
  • 11.48 seconds: Ebony Lane, Brianna Beahan
  • 11.49 seconds: Taylah Cruttenden
  • 11.54 seconds: Bree Masters, Monique Quirk, Riley Day

In other performances Damien Birkinhead recorded 20.48m in the shot put, his best performance since his 5th place at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Emerging NSW athlete Alexander Kolesnikoff recorded another 19m+ throw, with 19.39m at Illawong.
