Emily Lynch achieves gold in Track and Field Championship

Emily Lynch recently competed at the Copyworld Toshiba South Australian Track & Field Championships in Adelaide. Emily was 1 of 4 senior athletes from Mt Gambier who competed, with
all athletes doing very well.

Emily was competing in the 3km walk on Friday evening and had a great race with her friend and fellow competitor, Katie De Ruvo, with Emily clinching gold! Emily’s time for the 3km walk was 17:01.84
and Katie was close behind with a 17:03.64, which were both great times. This was the first time Emily had competed at senior athletics State Championships and it was a great experience.

Emily has now qualified for the National Championships which will be held in Sydney from April 12-19.
