NHB Masters T&F 2021 - 2022 season

With Covid still prevalent in New Zealand the main NZMA Indoor; North Islands and Nationals Championships had to be cancelled, some at short notice. Athletics Auckland came to the rescue and they were able to hold meetings during the season with a limited number of athletes. As the masters Nationals were cancelled the AAI Track & Field Championships became the main masters event of the season as last year AMA held their Championships within this event. The masters section was well supported in all age groups by 64men & women, this included 26 from NHB.           NHB sprinters won the 60/100/200m in the M30/35/45/55/60/75 also winning the W45/50/75 age groups. The Bays thowers won many age groups, as did the jumpers. A big thank you must go to all the Auckland officials and helpers for making ALL their meets an immense sucess through a very trying T&F season. Two Bays masters travelled to Brisbane in the beginning of April to take part in the Australian MastersT&F Championship, M55 Grant Hodges broke his 100/200m club records set just two weeks earlier and won Bronze in the 100m and a Silver in the 200m while W50 Phillipa Green was placed 4th in the 60/100m but moved up the take the Bronze in the 200m, just shy of her age group record set 2 years ago.
