Kel Hurdman won a gold medal in the U11 beach sprint relay at the 100yr anniversary Nippers Branch carnival held at Fingal Bay while his older sister Shari has been leading the field while she races toward the finish lines at Little Athletics.

Shari Hurdman enjoyed success at the Regional Little Athletics Carnival taking out two golds and one silver medal at the event.

Her win in the 100m sprint with a time of 13.20sec was a personal best for Shari and just .07 away from the regional record.

Anja Hurdman told News Of The Area, “She finished the 200m final with a time of 27.80 sec, crossing the line with a significant lead due to her powerful stride.

“Her bonus medal was a Silver in long jump (4.19m) which is an event she doesn’t particularly train for,” she said.

With the upcoming Athletics NSW State competition, Shari has some intensive training to look forward to.
Shari undertakes hard work, requiring both commitment and motivation.

Her coach Bob Walkley mixes up her training routine to keep it interesting and fun.

Shari just started High School at Tomaree and is enjoying the new learning environment immensely. The hardest part is being ready for the bus by 7:30am. School, training and her active lifestyle requires all the sleep she can get.
