Australia Takes Gold at INAS World Half Marathon Championship in Portugal

Great news from Portugal with the Australian Women’s team of Chloe Turner, Georgia Powning and Montana Whiteley taking gold in the women’s team event at the INAS World Half Marathon Championships.

All 6 team members completed the event in hot and humid conditions.  The men’s team of Harry Mezger, Monty Cooper and Carlo Manolitsas finished 4th in the men’s team event.

It was a great result for the team.

“Five months ago we embarked on this journey together. The athletes trained through all conditions, hot, freezing, hail and never missed a session, injury plagued us for a couple of weeks but all bounced back for the race today.  The thrill of representing your country is the greatest and we now have a team of women who are World Champions.”  Liz Gosper (Head Coach/Manager).

Thank you to everyone who assisted the team on their Journey.

The team (minus Harry Mezger) arrive back in Melbourne early on Saturday morning (27 October).
