CHRISTIAN AND LAUREN BREAK RECORDS AT VIC ALL SCHOOLS
10 November 2015
On Sunday 13 September, at the GGS Whole School Athletics Day, Lauren Ryan broke the Open 1500m record. This record, previously set by Olympian Rebecca Joyce, had stood for more than 25 years. Less than two months later Lauren has shaved almost four seconds off that time after winning the Under 18 1500m event at the Victorian All Schools Championships in 4:41.73. Lauren also recorded a personal best time of 2:14.19 as she finished 2nd in the 800m event.
Christian Davis, having set a new School Record and personal best time at the recent APS Athletics Carnival, improved that benchmark by 0.11 of a second at the All Schools Championships. Christian blitzed the field to win the Under 17 800m event in a time of 1:52.98. Ben Chaney, competing in the same race, finished in fourth in a time of 2:03.56.
