      Not sure these are posted to Aths Australia site yet (and I can't get in there at all for some reason right now), but here's a page with links to 2009 Aussie performance lists:

          McLellan ran in Brisbane yesterday, winning the 100H in 13.04 (+0.8).
          Matt Davies (10.46 +0.3) beat Patrick Johnson (10.48).

          Fairly low-key results round the country this weekend instead of the usual explosion we used to see at Canberra meet (now cancelled).

                More on upcoming Lukyanenko-Hooker battles, plus a rumour of Asafa heading down under:

                http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/st ... 18,00.html

                Also Hooker and McLellan are heading up to NYC:

                Hooker will warm up for the short domestic season with a stint at indoor competitions in the US and Europe, beginning in New York this Friday where his Olympic success makes him one of the headline acts.

                Also on the bill in New York will be Sally McLellan, the young gun who streaked to a silver medal in the 100m hurdles in Beijing.

                McLellan believes the 60m indoor track will suit her because she is renowned as a fast starter.

                    After a short glance on the results the 49,61 by Thomas seemt to be the most noteworthy.
                    Maybe along with 10,29 by Anthony Alozie in the 100m.
                    19 (in june) year old Ray Williams also preformed well with a 21,16 on the 200m. Equalled PB.

                      Especially since he clobbered the last hurdle hard.

                      Interesting to see that Steve Hooker followed up his OR in Beijing with a USI record in the PV and a near WIR in Millrose.

                      Especially since I was just watching him on local TV yesterday in a (pre-recorded) "Australia's Greatest Athlete" competition (think "Superstars") yesterday (his only "comp" between Beijing and NY.

                      The first contest saw them competing in golf and cricket events... Hopefully when they compete in some REAL sports, Hooker's speed and athleticism will give him an edge. Although the athletics event is likely to be a sprint, I'd like to see some of the motorsports, cricketers, rugby players and golfers vaulting..... :twisted:

                        Does he have any T&F marks besides the PV? Speed like Bubka's apocryphal 10.2h? I would think you'd need 26' LJ credentials to vault 20'.

                          He's run 21.1 hand and 21.78 (-1.3) for 200m and from memory his LJ best was around 7m. He hasn't competed in any of these events for a few years though.

                          His Mum (Olympic Pentathlon 72/LJ 6.58m in 1978) and Dad (400/400H/800 1-45.36 in 73) were both versatile athletes. I always thought Steve had great potential as a decathlete, but why bother I guess when you might just end up with a WR and Olympic Gold in the vault.

                            Vault-emort remembers well. Here are some Hooker PRs I pulled together in another thread a while back:

                            100m: 10.68 (2005)
                            200m: 21.65 (2003) & 21.1h (2005)
                            LJ: 7.20m (2004)

                            http://mb.trackandfieldnews.com/discuss ... hp?t=33868

                            As I also mentioned in another thread:

                            Summary of Hooker effort from Aths Australia site:

                            "Returning to competition for the first time since that remarkable night at the Bird’s Nest in August, Hooker’s winning clearance of 6.01m was the equal sixth highest jump of all time, the highest ever indoors in the United States and the best indoors in the world for seven years.
                            The leap is also a new Australian indoor record,"
                            The site also mentions that
                            "Olympic silver medallist Sally McLellan clocked 7.96 seconds in the 60m hurdles on her indoor debut,"
                            What they don't mention is that McLellan's time is also an Australian indoor record, thumping the previous records (by an Olympic champion no less) by 0.24 sseconds...
