This week’s Argo Re super sprint took place in hot and humid conditions. The challenging conditions didn’t stop it from being a great race.

In the full distance, Dirk Van Leeuwen was first home in 25.27, with evergreen Kent Richardson just behind in 25.29. Maritz Theron finished third in 25.59. The first lady home, with a strong time of 27.23, was the delightful Sharon Hammond, with Lynsey Palmer just four seconds behind and Melissa Logie a further nine seconds adrift.  Tommy Marshall was the first male junior in 28.17.

In the shorter race, Jasmine Hasselkus finished first in 20.31. Rory Fleming was next, and the first male finisher, in 20.40.

Liz Southern was kind enough to take responsibility for arranging this week’s race. She was quick to point out everyone else who helped (as she said, “all such nice people”) and wanted no personal thanks. Sorry, Liz: a big thank you. You deserve one. Janet Harrison was, once again, a superstar in helping. Liz also appreciated the help given by Julie Marshall, Tim Southern, Liz Stewart, and Tilly and Eddie Norman. If anyone’s missing, thank you too–and blame me!

A couple of comments:

  • This week must have been a nightmare for the timekeepers! Lots of people finished very close to each other–always a challenge. Well done for keeping things straight.
  • Another well done to Steve O’Reilly, who was apparently delighted to break 30 minutes–always a nice landmark.
