Glasgow bound!

After a long week waiting in anticipation, Athletics Australia yesterday announced the marathon team selected to compete at the Commonwealth Games at Glasgow. I am over the moon to be selected, along with Jess Trengove, Sarah Klein, Martin Dent, Michael Shelley and Liam Adams. It is a great honour to represent the country, and I cannot wait to do so!

What an amazing past 12 months it has been for me! I have had so much success with my running already, and under the guidance of Coach Telford, I am continuing to see improvements week after week. Being selected for the Commonwealth Games is an amazing achievement in itself, and it really is exciting to know that I have so much more ahead of me.

A big thank you to my sponsors On-Running and Adidas Eyewear, coach Dick Telford, and all my friends and family that are so supportive!

With only 10 weeks to go, I am in full training and loving every step of the way to Glasgow!

  1. Melanie, massive congratulations on making the team, well deserved and I’m sure your best races are still to come, if we don’t manage to see you in passing on a sunday morning all the best from Dave & all the Alex runners.

  2. hello. congratulations on your success at the games!!!
    my son mitchell (grade 2) is doing a little school project on you for their topic of “healthy bodies” in which they have been following the commonwealth games. would you like to share a couple of facts with him?
    he chose you as he is a very keen little conservationist. we visited australia zoo this year (we are from victoria) and he was very excited to see you in the crikey magazine.
    shellie and mitchell
