1 ASA Website & Invitational START LISTS on Fri Apr 01, 2011 1:41 pm


ASA have launched its new website - very impressive. Worth checking out.

One of the news items announces that three interstate athletes have been invited to compete in what seems to be the feature event of the Adelaide Invitational on 7th April - the 800m.

From the ASA website

Stars Confirmed for Adelaide Airport Invitational

Entries are now open for the upcoming Adelaide Airport Invitational to be held on Thursday 7th April 2011 at Santos Stadium. Headlining the meet will be 2006 Commonwealth Games 1500m bronze medallist Mark Fountain.

This meet will showcase the best “home grown” athletics action seen on the new Santos Stadium track to date. The feature event of the night looks to be the men’s 800m, headlined by 2006 Commonwealth Games 1500m bronze medallist Mark Fountain, sub four minute miler Brentan Rowe and up and coming Australian junior Jordan Williamz. These top interstate athletes will be taking on SA 800m guns including James Boden, state champion Robbert Killmier, and Andrew Giam, with all capable of taking line honours.

Entry is free for all spectators. Action kicks off at 7:15pm. Come along to see great live athletics action, race commentary, athlete interviews, music and more.

For more information on the Adelaide Airport Invitational, see the ASA website.

Any ideas what "Athletes MUST be a current financial member of Athletics SA in order to compete." on the sign-up page means? Given they've already invited some interstate athletes this line is rather confusing.

Men's 400m is likely to be cancelled due to lack of numbers.

ANYONE wanting to compete please contact ASA as soon as possible.

Men's 100m & 200m still short a couple.

Women's 100m & 200m and Men's 800m look to be the pick of the races.

Not withstanding the large 12-person field, credit must go to Adam Didyk and Toby Medlin for assembling the best 800m field for a race at SANTOS for nearly a decade. Certainly since the last time ASA hosted a grand prix meet. Nine athletes have broken 1-52 in the last 12 months, with another having a season's best of 1-52.1. Ten athletes all between 1-48.9 and 1-52.1 - within 3.2secs of each other.

For sheer depth, this is the best ever race field for an Invitational in the four year history of the event.

The large field may cause some problems as athletes position themselves in the first 150m, but hopefully after that, it settles down to a terrific & fastly run contest.

One of the anomalies of Amateur racing is the use of pacemakers in so called elite races,it would be OK if we didn't have to put up with their holier than thou attitude towards the pro's.

Victorian Influx Promises to Provide Athletics Showcase in Adelaide

posted by rtsam on
April 6, 2011

Tonight's Adelaide Airport Invitational at Santos Stadium is shaping as one of the best meets in the event’s history with more than 80 athletes competing across 11 events. The event continues to grow in interest and popularity and Thursday night’s meet has attracted a large contingent of Victorian athletes as they prepare for next weekend’s national championships in Melbourne.

The feature event of the night will be the men’s 800m with arguably the most talented field assembled for any event in the history of the Adelaide Airport Invitational. Headlining what promises to be an intriguing battle is 2006 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Mark Fountain. Returning from injury, Fountain showed he is ready to again run fast after posting 3:40 for 1500m to finish second at the Australian Athletics Tour Final in Perth last week. Finishing ahead of Fountain in that meet was Brenton Rowe who will also be lining up in the 800m. Rowe and Fountain will also be joined by fellow Victorians Jordan Williamz and Lachlan Aspinall who are sure to feature prominently.

Flying the South Australian flag will be Andrew Giam, State Champion Robert Killmier, and the in-form James Boden, who ran 1:49 for 800m in Perth last week. In all, there are 9 runners who have 800m personal best times of 1:51 or better. The question on everyone’s lips will be can James Boden’s meet record of 1:48.92 set last year survive the night. With Michael Nitschke as the designated pace maker, and a race bursting with talent, this promises to be a spectacle of national quality middle distance running.

South Australian distance running has experienced a resurgence of late and the 3000m is sure to be another highlight of the Adelaide Airport Invitational. Newly crowned 1500m state champion Rhys Jones will take on Adelaide Harriers team mate Chris Hartley, with their training partner, national junior champion Luke Hargreaves, electing to take the pace. After impressive performances in the recent National Junior Championships and the open State Championships, brothers Jacob and Riley Cocks will be looking to further challenge their personal bests. Former World Cross Country representative, Duer Yoa will also be one to watch as he returns to fitness.

The women’s 100m promises to be an enthralling battle as state champion Leanne Hodge takes on former national medallist Alicia Wrench-Doody. Hodge prevailed over Wrench-Doody in a closely fought contest at the recent state championships, and Wrench-Doody will be eager to reverse the result on this occasion. In the men’s 100m, Todd Bateman will be looking to sharpen up for the National Championships in Melbourne next week after running a wind-assisted 10.57 to comfortably claim the State Championship.

In the long jump, National Junior Champion, Tim McGuire will take on Victorian, Adam Radbone, and current National Decathlon Champion, Jarrod Sims. A select field has also been assembled in the mixed pole vault with Tim MacDermott and Jana Tankosic the ones to watch, along with national junior medallist Tom McNamara. Athletes With a Disability will also compete over 100m and in the 400m wheelchair.

Kicking off at 6:30pm on Thursday night with pole vault, the Adelaide Airport Invitational will run through until just after 8pm, with the final race and feature event, the men’s 800m commencing at 8:15pm. Entry is free for all spectators.
