The Athletics Victoria Shield League (AVSL) round will commence for Athletics Bendigo athletes in the afternoon from 1:30pm.
South Bendigo athlete and Australian Shot Put Champion, Emma Berg, is preparing to board a plane for Europe to compete in three international competitions representing Australia in July and August.

Emma and her coach, Peter Barrett, are calling for tax deductible donations of support to enable her to make it to the 'toe board' at two UK Championships (Under 23 and Open) and the AAI games in Ireland from the 13th of July to the 1st of August, 2022.
