Donegan and Kirwan on track for Z:10


Two of MUAC’s finest will line up at the Zatopek:10 on Saturday night, taking their place amongst the best athletes in Australia. The Zatopek:10 is the first 2012 Olympic qualification event for the summer.  Rosie Donegan, Australian Representative at the 2011 World Mountain Running Championships and bronze medallist at the 2011 Australian Cross Country Championships, will go head to head with Australia’s best distance running hopes in the Ondieki Women’s U20 3000m race.  Mark Kirwan, after a very impressive 14:33 in the Victorian 5000m Championships 2 weeks ago finds himself in the premier race for the meet, the Zatopek:10. The race doubles as the Australian Championship and Olympic selection trials, and he lines up alongside Craig Mottram, Ben St Lawrence, Dave McNeill and Micah Kogo. MUAC supporters will be out in force, meeting up before the competition to fuel up with some hearty North Indian food to sustain the cheering.
