Well done Hamish!
Congratulations also to Taylor McCarthy Smith.
Currently also our State Champion 2015 for Modern Pentathlon Queensland. Pulled out all the stops in a fierce competition on the weekend at the Queensland Combined Events Championships 2015.
With 13 great competitors, the places for medals could not be decided until the tally for the last event and all the girls did an extremely good job. Involving Hurdles (6th), High jump (2nd), Shot put (6th), 200m (2nd), Long jump (4th), Javelin (4th) and a great 800m (1st), the places chopped and changed throughout the competition.
Taylor nabbed the silver medal with an impressive 4206 points, which also places her in the Queensland A-Squad for Athletics.
Congratulations Taylor. Great job!
