NZ National XC Champs – MEDALS!


, , , ,

FSA Coaching athletes (and coach!) medal at the NZ National Cross Country Champs this weekend!

In the mud of Grenada North, FSA Coaching Junior Squad runner Liliani Cuevas-Haxton took out silver in the Under 11 Girls race.  With a super strong finishing kick, Liliani was only metres behind the winner over this tough 2km course.

Coach Tom managed bronze in the M35 race, picking off a few places in the final lap to claim the last spot on the podium.

All the results are on the Athletics NZ website.

It was a great event put on by Olympic Harriers and Athletics Wellington, seriously muddy under foot but a testing course with a mix of hills and flats to keep things interesting.

Thanks to Wellington Masters Athletics for some of the awesome photos!
