Cassowary Coast athletes excel at Tolga Pentathlon

Indi Bishop-Utschink, Ruby Torrisi, Ella Croatto, and Olivia Aquilina.

OVER 160 athletes competed in the Tolga Interclub Pentathlon at Tolga Sports Reserve, hosted by Tableland Athletics Club, where records fell one after another and lots of personal bests were achieved. 

Cassowary Coast Athletics Club was well represented with twenty-one competitors, who all performed extremely well.

Clubs from Normanton, Cassowary Coast, Tully, Douglas, Cairns, Ross River, Mulgrave, Whitsundays, together with many independent athletes, took part in the family-friendly event.

Athletes aged from six years up to the master’s age group competed in a fixed five-event program, whilst those aged four and five could take part in a tetrathlon.

The first twenty athletes aged 14 years+ who nominated, participated in a throws pentathlon which consisted of hammer, shot put, discus, javelin, and weight throw.
