Kath is a world-class masters athlete with many medals and records to show for her career which shows no sign of slowing down. As can be seen from her results in the Age Graded awards, her percentage of performance across sprints and middle distance events is outstanding.
Her performances across all events at the Country Championships against younger competitors winning many medals and topping her year off with a much sort after steeple record got her this award amongst a number of very talented Masters athletes competing with Bendigo Region clubs.
