New Zealand Competition Results

Athletics Auckland Track & Field Championships, Mt Smart Stadium – 8/9 February 2020
Hamish Gill continued his fine form this season with a personal best 200m of 20.93 +2.0, improving on his previous best of 21.05 set four years ago at the Australian championships. James Guthrie-Croft was second in 21.64. Gill, who beat Edward Osei-Nketia over 100m at the Potts Classic, is pleased with how the season is progressing.

“I’m pulling out some good times which is nice, it’s good to have a good foundation for heading into more important competitions like nationals and stuff,” said Gill. Gill will be competing in Canberra on Thursday with the New Zealand relay team and also in the individual 100m. “So hopefully we can improve on some times for all of us,” he added.

Tommy Te Puni won the under 20 200m in 21.76 +0.7 from Daniel Parkes 21.97 PB. Natasha Eady won the women’s 200m in 24.21 +0.5 from Briana Stephenson 24.38 PB.

“The season has been consistent, I’m not PBing yet, I’m holding that until nationals,” said Eady.
Stephenson also had a 6.03m +3.0 long jump (5.98m +0.9) her best since 6.01m two months ago.
She is back in good form after major knee surgery three years ago. “It feels good to be back and I know there’s more in there but it’s really just about getting the distance, so when it all comes together it works well.I did my knee doing netball during 2016 and I’ve only been really started to come back into proper form now. It’s a long time coming but it feels good,” said Stephenson.

Stephenson will compete at the Porritt Classic and then the New Zealand Championships. After that the Brisbane Track Classic and the Australian nationals are on the programme.

Oliver Miller had to pull out all the stops to peg back Daniel Parkes in the 400m hurdles. Miller recorded 54.88 to Parkes 54.96. After the race, Miller announced that he won’t be defending his national 400m and 400m hurdles titles, as he will be competing in the New South Wales championships which are on the same weekend as the nationals in Christchurch.

“Obviously I’d love to defend my titles, but I made the call that there’d be more competition across the ditch and that I might get some extra races in. So I made the tough call to go across there, instead of going down to the nationals. It will be the first time I’ve missed nationals in five years,” said Miller.

The 20 year old has won gold at every New Zealand championships since 2015. “This season is all about getting some big PB’s and then carry that through for next season to try and go over to Europe and then hopefully the World University Games as well next year.” Miller will be competing in the 400m hurdles at both the Porritt and Capital Classic meetings and will be looking to run the 400m flat at the Sir Graeme Douglas meeting.

Celine Pearn won the women’s 400m hurdles in 62.66. Alisha Lovrich retained her Auckland senior pole vault title clearing 3.17m. Aria Rhodes won the U/20 title with 3.47m from Samantha van den Hurk 3.27m PB.
