Borrow one from the friendly finish line officials if you have to – just don’t row to the start without one. ACT Athletes at the National Level – omissions Earlier this week we listed ACT athletes invited to compete for national representation. The following were omitted due to my carelessness:

  • Christabelle Northam and Louise Kilby in the W2- at the Senior and U23 trials, and
  • Jaime Fernandez as a coach for at the Junior Elite Target Squad. Unfortunately for us, but great for Jaime, he is now listed as a Victorian coach, as he is moving to Melbourne in a couple of months.
