Cassowary Coast athletes achieve great success at Coral Coast Carnival

Local athletes, Quinn and Brady Devaney, met Australian Olympic 100m sprinter, Rohan Browning.

TEN Cassowary Coast athletes recently competed in the Coral Coast Track and Field Carnival at Barlow Park, Cairns, and returned home with a stack of medals and personal bests.

The Coral Coast Carnival was held over two days and was open to athletes aged four to Masters’ age group. It provided an opportunity for participants to compete against athletes from other clubs with varying ranges of experience.

It was an Oceanic Permit Meet for all Open events, allowing athletes the chance to obtain ranking points and qualification opportunities for the 2022 World Athletics’ events.

Quinn Devaney bagged seven gold medals and was pleased to have run personal bests in the 100m, 200m, and 800m. 

Brady Devaney placed first in shotput, second in 800m, and third in 200m and 100m. He was extremely excited to have run under 34 seconds in his 200m.

Chilli Newman placed fourth in discus, fifth in shotput, eighth in 800m, and sixth in long jump.

The highlight of their weekend was meeting some of our incredible Olympians.

Competitors and fans had the opportunity to meet members of the Australian Athletics team, who included Jemima Montag, Dani Stevens, Liz Clay, and Rohan Browning, who had their last training session in Cairns before the Tokyo Olympics.
