Leading from the front!

AU Athletics Club President, Brian Wilson is leading by example and showing how it is done at the Club.

Just after Christmas Brian won the 550m Open Handicap at 2017 Bay Sheffield. AU Sport Development Office Sara Lane was at the event and saw Brian in run in the Semi and Final and was blown away at the speed he showed. “I couldn’t believe how fast he was with his starts. He jumped out of the blocks to set himself up for the rest of the race. He was pushed in the final but he held strong to come away with the win which was great to see!” Check out his race here!

He has carried on this success at a recent meet in Canberra at the ACT Championships. He places 2nd in the 400m (B) final and a PB 47.57. He also clocked just over 22 in the 200m.
Brian's time consolidates his 400m national ranking.

His next event will be at the Athletics Australia Nationals Championships, 15 – 18 February on the Gold Coast. We are also hopeful that he is available to represent the University of Adelaide at the new University Nationals which will held September.
Good luck Brian.
