The Hills athletics club is very proud to have fielded an all female Para (AWD) team in the open womens 100m relay on the weekend. The first leg was run by Steph Schweitzer who has run at the London Paralympics as well as world champs. Chloe Iwan ran the 2nd leg and represented Australia at the INAS World Champs in Ecuador. Kailyn ran the difficult 3rd leg and is a member of the Para athlete target talent program. 4th leg was run by Brittney who is training for a spot in the Australian INAS World Champs team and anchored the team in style.
The team was not without its hiccups two days before the race one of the scheduled runners Tamsin Colley broke her ankle. Tamsin is the youngest Track and Field athlete to represent Australia in on open event. At the Rio Paralympics she competed aged 14 years and 2 days and is working towards selection for the IPC World Championships in London in 2017.
All of these athletes are coached by the Father /Son team of Ron Rawlings and Matthew Rawlings.
Congratulations and well done, you have done yourselves and the club proud.

The State Track and Field relays are the biggest event for the Hills club. They require a great deal of organising and coordination. If you are interested in assisting please let me know. The club needs to submit entries in a week and a half so we need to know what times you will be available to compete. Your assistance as always is appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less

I am interested in getting some indication of the level of interest from the Hills Para athletes about entering one or possibly two open 4× 100m relay teams. I understand that it is unlikely to be competitive however it is a first step to having Para athletes included in one of the biggest annual completions in Athletics. ... See MoreSee Less
