ON TRACK: The women's 100m sprinters were in fine
form yesterday.

Visitors spur quick times

The Hobart Mercury
November 27, 2011

AN influx of interstate sprinters brought the competition required for Tasmanians to produce quick times at a high quality interclub yesterday at the Domain.

Athletics Australia's decision to conduct the national under-20 sprint relay camp in Tasmania this week, allowed local sprinters to revel in high level competition.

Current Stawell Gift winner Mitchell Williams clocked the fifth fastest 100m time by an Australian this year, of 10.42 seconds.

In the process, he dragged in form teenager Charlie Leek to the first sub 11 second 100m clocking by a Hobart athlete in five years.

State champion Leek clocked 10.96 seconds to be the first man under the 11 second barrier since Sam Crosswell.

Crosswell was also back in action yesterday, winning the 200m in 22.45 seconds.

Female 100m runners were also in fine form, with Queenslander Carla Williams clocking 12 seconds flat.

Behind her, five Tasmanians bettered the 13 second barrier, with Eastern Suburbs teenager Caitlin Newson the first local home in 12.42.

Newfound sprint sensation Jaymie Hall also benefited from having someone to chase in the 200m, with the Northern Suburbs athlete running 25.55 seconds, finishing behind News South Welshman Karlie Morton's 25.10.

Good sprinting continued in the longer 400m, with North Launceston's Abbey de la Motte blitzing her interstate relay companions.

Lining up in the middle of the field, the petite de la Motte was uncatchable on her way to clocking 55.86 seconds, just .05 off her lifetime best.

National junior 400m champion Jarryd Buchan impressed in his favourite event, with a time of 48.48, finishing in front of Sandy Bay's Jarrod Gilroy and North Launceston's Darcey Lahey.

The track program concluded with the 4 x 100m, which gave the national squad a chance to put on a classy display.

With seamlessly perfect baton changes, the Australian teams won both the men's and women's races, with the women stopping the clock at 46.95 seconds and the men running 41.82.

In the field, high jumper Kaitlin Morgan obtained her third world junior qualifier of the season, sailing over 1.80m.
