In addi­tion to our life­sav­ing ser­vice to the com­mu­ni­ty, Mul­laloo Surf Life Sav­ing Club fos­ters a spir­it of par­tic­i­pa­tion, expe­ri­ence, safe­ty, com­pe­ti­tion

and sheer good fun. It was with these in mind that a few of our club mem­bers proud­ly donned the green and gold for Aus­tralian rep­re­sen­ta­tion!

Between 26th Octo­ber and 6th Novem­ber 2016, Perth host­ed the World Ath­let­ics Cham­pi­onships for Mas­ters.  It has run every oth­er year since 1975, and this time was a first for Perth. Like the Surf Life Sav­ing Mas­ters, old­sters com­pete in age cat­e­gories span­ning five years start­ing at 35. With over four thou­sand tak­ing part, this is larg­er than the senior World Cham­pi­onships or Olympic Games. Events were held at the State Ath­let­ics Sta­di­um, the Ern Clark Ath­let­ics Cen­tre (ECAC) in Can­ning­ton, and longer dis­tance events con­vened around Bur­swood and Per­ry Lakes. Despite its size and com­plex­i­ty, the event went with­out a hitch, a cred­it to the city’s abil­i­ty to host a world class event.

The cham­pi­onships fea­ture about thir­ty dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines. These include all the stan­dard Olympic Track and Field plus a few that are almost

unique to Mas­ters Ath­let­ics such as the “Weight Throw”, “Cross Coun­try Run” and the mul­ti-event, “Throws Pen­tathlon”.

Mul­laloo mem­bers were rep­re­sent­ed by com­pet­ing in track events. Trevor Bul­ley in the 100m, Mar­tin Kennedy 1500m and 5000m and John Hillen the X-coun­try and half-marathon. All man­aged to get to the fin­ish line fly­ing Aus­tralian colours with both ham­strings intact. Medals were gen­er­ous­ly left to our for­eign guests.

A stand­out per­for­mance came from Arthur Car­bon, grand­fa­ther of past mem­ber David Car­bon, com­pet­ing at 96 years old (yep, that’s nine­ty-six) win­ning gold in the 100, 200 and 400 metre events. To get an idea of per­for­mance lev­els, the win­ning time for the men’s 85 years + 100 metres was 15.82 sec­onds. The fastest 100m men’s times was in the 40+ cat­e­go­ry at 10.58 sec­onds (Usain Bolt world record stands at 9.58 secs)!
