Sprinter grabs medals at nationals
Toowoomba Chronicle
18th April 2011

SPRINTER Charlotte van Veenendaal’s decision to link with Toowoomba athletics coach Gerrard Keating 12 months ago was vindicated with an impressive two-medal haul at the Australian Athletics Championships in Melbourne over the weekend.

Van Veenendaal enjoyed the best meet of her short career in Melbourne, winning a bronze medal in the hotly contested 100m sprint final on Saturday before capturing a silver medal with an impressive showing in the 200m event on Sunday.

The 22-year-old was unlucky to be awarded bronze in the 100m after dead-heating with Melissa Breen in a time of 11.67 seconds. Breen was awarded the silver medal by judges after a review of the photo finish.

“I thought there was absolutely nothing in it and I’m disappointed they didn’t give them both silver,” Keating said.

“She was just off her personal best in the 100 which was run in the cold and into a headwind so I’m really stoked for her.”

Australian Athlete of the Year Sally Pearson won the 100m event in a time of 11.38 seconds.

Pearson was also too fast for van Veenendaal in the final of the 200m, van Veenendaal clocking 24.01 seconds.
