Canberra Sprints – Three wins to Victoria

Over the Australia Day weekend a number of Victorians travelled up to Canberra to compete in Sprint Canberra, a High Performance team fund raising series of five sprint races. The races, 4 on campuses and 1 in the bush, generated intense competition with all the competitors spread over only three courses as in Sprint into Spring. The highlight was certainly the last race, planned by Ian Lawford, on the complex ANU South map.
Victoria took away three overall wins. Will Gardner, winning three out of the five races and Natasha Key, first woman in all five races, won the Open grade titles. But the stand out performance was that of Sophie Arthur winning all the races to take the Short course overall title.
Melbourne based Brodie Nankervis, pushed Will all the way winning the other 2 races and placing second overall.
The weekend was organised by Jim Russell, Craig Feuerherdt and the national High Performance squad.
