Olympic standards set

The Olympic standards have been set for New Zealand track and field, with the heptathlon at 6050 (full policy click here). Its lower than the 6150 existing A standard for World Champs which came as a pleasant surprise!

6050 is a score I think I can achieve during the NZ domestic season next year so thats great....would be ideal to get the qualifier out of the way early so I can prepare fully for the Olympics. I have until July 8th 2012 to meet the qualiyfing mark.

I had a great training session this morning...swimming in the outdoor pool at Jelly Park, it was only 5deg outside and the shortest day of the year! A few more big quakes, including a 6.3 last Monday have made the move to Dunedin look even more inviting!
