AVSL Round Nine

AVSL Round Nine was a round for great performances and broken records to back that up. Starting with the Heat 1 of the men’s 400m putting on a show. We saw Cooper Sherman take out the Open and U20 men’s BRAC record with a time of 46.8s, which is also the fastest Australian 400m time in 2024 so far. This same race saw Hudson Downes break the U17 men’s 400m record with a time of 48.97s. But the records do not stop there, with Mackayla Culvenor breaking her own U16 women’s triple jump record with a jump of 11.80m, lastly, we saw Kelly Ruddick walk her way into another record for the 50+ women’s 3000m walk in a time of 14:11.55m.
