Jacarna Bain-Fenton wins NSW relay title

Cessnock Advertiser
23 Nov, 2011




A personal best run by Abermain athlete Jacarna Bain-Fenton spurred the Newcastle A women’s 4x400 metre relay team to a State title at the NSW Relay Championships.

Jacarna, 17, ran a split of 55 seconds flat in the first leg of the final to put Newcastle A into a good position.

The team comprised Jacarna, Commonwealth Games athlete Pirrenee Steinert and her sister Sheena, and 17-year-olds Tia O’Carroll and Emily Coppins.

They took home the gold medal as the top-placed NSW team in the final, and broke a 12-year-old meet record in the process with a time of three minutes, 38.84 seconds.

They finished second behind the International A team (3:37.41), featuring athletes from the UK and Ireland who were trying to run qualifying times for the London Olympics.

Jacarna, who trains under respected Hunter coach Tony Fairweather, is aiming for a spot on the Australian team for the World Junior Athletics Championships in Barcelona next year.

She will attend a training camp in Hobart this week and will compete at the national championships in Brisbane in a fortnight.
