The first event of the Summer Super Series
Canberra played host to the first of the Athletics Australia Summer Super Series; a 4 meet series offering prize money and points at each meet.
The event was held at the Australian Institute of Sport's Track and Field Centre. And while the weather was grey and rainy (the rain peaking during the highly anticipated women's 800m), the stars were out in force, as Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Nick Hough got things underway with a win in the 110m hurdles.
Fire kit of the day went to Hong Kong runner, Chun Hong So in the men's 100m B race. So had teammates in other events throughout the afternoon.
In the women's 400m hurdles, both Sarah Carli and Lauren Wells ran qualifiers for the World Champs.
Young New Zealand sprinter Edward Nketia ran both the 100m and the 200m, coming away with a national U20 record in the latter.
The feature race of the meet was the women's 800, with Keely Small, Carley Thomas, Georgia Griffith, and Morgan Mitchell all lining up.
In an exciting finish, New Zealand athlete Katherine Camp finished like a rocket, pipping Carley Thomas on the line. Small 3rd, Mitchell 4th.
After narrowly missing out in the 100m, Maddie Coates got a win in the 200m.
