Sasha Zhoya and Sophie White collect meet records, Clarke breaks her own Australian Record and WA's heptathletes dominate.
The morning session of Day 3 was dominated by WA’s emerging Heptathlon talent. Isabel Daines and Leah Richards fought it out in the U16 competition, with both athletes leading the field at seperate stages. However it was Daines who was able to secure the win in her maiden national heptathlon event. Generating four personal bests, the 2017 WA State Champion pulled together an impressive seven events to break the U16 WA record with a score of 4974 points. Richards was unlucky to miss out on the medals, finishing fourth by just 27 points.
WA’s Hurdlers blitzed the field during the evening session of Day 3. Sasha Zhoya dazzled Sydney Olympic Park once more with a new meet record in the U17 110m hurdles, crossing the line with style in 13.60. Sophie White joined Zhoya on the dais, collecting her own National title in the U17 100m hurdles in a new meet record of 13.50. While Adriaan Pelser medalled in the U18 110m hurdles with a bronze in a time of 14.45.
