Vincent sub 29 at Queensland 10,000m titles – Weekly Wrap 19 September 2021

  • 22 September 202122 September 2021

Domestic track action has recommenced in some Australian states, with strong September performances recorded.

The highlight performance was Tim Vincent lowering his personal best by 7 seconds to break the 29 minute barrier at the Queensland 10,000m titles. Vincent ran 28:59.75 to become the 11th Australian under 29 minutes this year.

With the potential that the Zatopek:10 meet might go ahead in December (pending interstate border restrictions easing), the record established in 2019 of 15 Australians going sub-29 minutes in a calendar year could be under threat.
