Heel and Toe – Fastest South African Champs in History


WALKER OF THE WEEK
My walker of the week this time around goes to Melbourne walker Pam Tindal who is competing in the W55 division in the Australian Masters Championships in Adelaide at the moment. She is in superb form and has two golds after two events, with wins in Friday’s 1500m Walk (7:21.83 89.73%) and Sunday’s 5000m walk (26:19.20 88.94%). I hear she had a great battle with WA maestro Lyn Ventris in the W55 5000m and actually scored the win by 15 secs – and it is not often that anyone beats Lyn, who won 3 golds in last year’s World Masters Champs in Lyon, France. I also see that Pam earned silver in the W55 800m – a versatile athlete indeed! Well done Pam and good luck for today’s 10km roadwalk.

The time of Annette Koen is posted incorrect. It was 51:32 and not 57:32. Chris Brits can confirm it.
