PRESS RELEASE: Burning up the track

The big guns roll out on the track for the first time in the 2016 World Masters Athletics Championships tomorrow (Friday, October 28) when the preliminary and semi finals of the men’s 100m swing into action.

Defending 100m and 200m M40 Masters champ TJ Ossai will be vying to retain his gold and claims to be in better form than last year when he clinched the double.

Recording a sub-10.5 secondĀ run in preparation for the championships, Ossai was relaxed and ready to hit the track, arriving in Perth last week to acclimatise.

The US and Trinidad Tobago are set for an epic battle in the M35 100m and Australia is looking strong in the older age groups with a good showing across all categories.

The men’s M35, M40, M45 and M50 decathlon winds up tomorrow and the finals of the gruelling 800m in all men’s categories will see stadium come alive in the evening.

Women’s throws continue at Ern Clark Athletic Centre in Cannington with Weight andĀ  Hammer throws and women’s 5000m walk finals.
