More medals and acclaim for runners

24 October 2006

There's no rest for the UCT athletes as the road running calendar picks up summer momentum and the track and field season about to kick off. At the October 14 Blue Downs 10km, Unice Vorster finished second and Amy Aronson came in ninth. In the men's section, Nelson Bass was 14th, and new member Kevin Harlock, recently joined from Fish Hoek, finished his second race for UCT. And at the Western Province Athletics Awards evening, Harlock received a special award for service to the sport as a technical official. Vorster and pole-vaulter Sylma Jordaan both received WP colours, Vorster for being in the WP cross country team for three years and Jordaan, who's been in WP teams for around 10 years, for her bronze medal at the SA Champs. Then last Tuesday, October 17, javelin thrower Odette Olivier picked up gold at the Collison Cup meeting at Vygieskraal for a throw of over 42m, into a vicious headwind. James Stutterheim is also showing a return to form by finishing second in the 600m. Bass was also second in the 3 000m. UCT currently lies second in the Collison series, just two points behind the University of the Western Cape. The next meeting is on Thursday, November 2, at Bell-ville, starting at 19h00.
