ONLY 4 major wins. WOW, SO hard done by,,,,,NOT.
Compared to the athletes who have none, she's ahead of the pack..

someone cant count and has forgotten some wins this lass has had in her successful career.

According to the TAL website Ballarat 800, Burnie 400 twice, St helens 120, hobart gift, roseberry 200, devonport 200 gift. This young lass has more prizemoney than most of the blokes. not doing it hard let me tell you.

Scratched from Stonnington....watch her for Stawell after her 2nd place at Trinity looking very comfortable.

For starters Davis is not exactly a young lass and I'd hardly call carnivals like Roseberry & St Helens a major carnival when only a handful of female athletes compete. Oh and I hardly think Davis will be one to watch at Stawell the young lass is running at Masters Nationals in Sydney. Pfffft!

Fair call Halestorm and some consideration was given to censoring this thread but on balance there has been significant support for the athlete and the criticism is more to do with the handicapping system.


On the issue of the sport dying.....you might need to check the figures on that. In SA, Victora, WA & NSW, pro-running registrations are up substantially, with significant increase in junior participation in SA & Victoria. It is as healthy as I've seen it since the 1990's.

The increased numbers of juniors has been a real highlight of this season.

Maybe that extra $60,000 that Australia Post chipped in could have been better spent across 6 women's and junior women's events to keep these newbies in the sport for longer, and attract even more females. For example:

$20k Women's Gift
$5k U20 Girl's Gift
$10k Women's 400m
$5k U20 Girl's 400m
$5k Women's 1600m
$5k U20 800m
$10km Spread out across a range of U16 girl's events.

Can you imagine how high participation would increase across the whole sport and not just one event if the money was utilised in this way?

Agree with you DizzyRunner. Great point. Only time will tell if the money was well spent.

Yes its just marketing a perception of "equality".

Funnily it will probably get more new runners registered/interested than having Asafa Powell turn up. Whether it actually gets any more interest from the general public I doubt very much.

agree with you JH. doesn't help the VAL out at all. Just looks after Stawell and I too believe it won't get any extra interest from the general pop
