This is a link to watch the track meet in Australia from the Australian Athletics Youtube Channel.
Amazing and her talent is off the charts! New Zealand has found quite the star. All of the female Australian Sprinters haveNew Zealander Zoe Hobbs in her first outing this year just ran a new very smooth PR 11.07 (1.8) in her heat and 10.89 (3.4) in NZ 100 final

With all of the historically great New Zealand runners I don't recall one great female world level runner before. I know she made a world semifinal and commonwealth final if she can run times like that against the elite of female sprinting she can make a world final and at the commonwealth level she should medal.Amazing and her talent is off the charts! New Zealand has found quite the star. All of the female Australian Sprinters have
fallen short as usual so it's great to see New Zealand get some true stars to help grow the sport! With Zoe Hobbs on the female side
and Tiaan Whelpton on the male side. Both of these youngsters have elite talent. It's early but they could help change the face of
Athletics in New Zealand. Zoe Hobbs is further ahead but she is 26 years old compared to Whelpton who is 22 years of age.
I wish I could have been there. What a fun day of track. Haven't seen any videos of the race yet online. If someoneIt was great to watch the men's relay. The home straight was 30 metres in front of me and the teams were spaced so I could see Browning running by himself flat out at 60m-70m mark, not battling Nketia.
I must say anyone running low 10s in isolation looks extremely fast. He was just skimming across the ground.
Our semi resident German won the Shot. But hey, I'm on a learning curve and he has learned from childhood in East Germany- so to be 2nd to him by 9cms I was over the moon. Medalled in discus too.I wish I could have been there. What a fun day of track. Haven't seen any videos of the race yet online. If someone
finds it please post it. Glad you had a good time mastermulti. How did you do in your masters events?
I talked about this very young South African Teenage Sprinter last year. His name is Armand Ver Der Walt. I see elite potential and I mean
elite in this kid. He has talent to be similar to a Matthew Boling. He also reminds me of Christophe Lemaitre. He just set new personal
best times as an 18 year old of 10.19 and 20.43 just a few weeks ago. The kid won't be 19 till October. When he adds some strength to his
tall lanky physique he will be scary good. He is just a natural born sprinter in my opinion. Here are his last 2 races!
this time isn't in the IAAF lists yet - I checked irregular wing readings also but nowhere to be found. He can sure stride out beautifully and might be a true 200 metre great - we can never find one of those here in Australia.
Anyone who even approaches a 20.50 here gets more air time than the run merits
