    That's typical Aussie - they'll be claiming they invented Pavlovas next!

    I don't believe Burdon has ever represented Australian. She's listed as NZ by IAAF:

    In the NCAA results, you say Lilli Burdon is an "Aussie-raised NZ'er".
    Does that mean she can represent either country in the WC/OG?
    Dual citizenship, like Mondo??
    If she is on an NZ passport she would be eligible for NZ. That Eligibility could be in question as she has already completed for Australia.

    However, the situation for New Zealanders living in Australia is somewhat complicated in terms of residence status. New Zealanders are automatically allowed to go and live in Australia and to work and to study. However that right does not grant New Zealanders any residency status of Australia.

    There are New Zealanders living in Australia who went there when they were infants but they do not have residence status or citizenship status

    Young Sophie White who I mentioned a page or two back equalled Sally Pearson's U18 NR of 13.14 for 100H at the junior champs yesterday.

    ETA And on the final day she took out the 100m in 11.61 (1.2) - faster than a few of our CG relay squad

    One reason the Sydney GP seems to getting no love presumably because the Junior Nationals are on (which serve also as trials for WJ).

    One result that caught my eye is
    U16 W400m Ellie Beer 53.55 (meet record). Her date of birth is Jan 3, 2003, so she's only just 15.

    She ran faster than the pretty swift U20 winner: Ella Connolly 53.94.

    Also seems it's a WJ qualifier, although from memory, she may be too young to compete there.

    The Sydney GP is on tomorrow (who knew?). And there are actually startlists etc here:

    http://athletics.com.au/Compete/Even...ney-grand-prix

    Of some interest/note:
    M1500m: Centrowitz vs McEntee, Riseley, Gusman
    MJT: Peacock vs Davinder Singh (84.57 PB), Neeraj Chopra (86.48 PB)

    W400m: Oboya vs Thornton
    WDT: Stevens vs Laly
    WJT: Mitchell vs Roberts
    WLJ: Stratton vs Anang

    But wow, it's thin...

    I wouldn't be so sure. Mitchell, Roberts and Gleadle were all over 64m last year, and all have been selected.

    She tweeted about six hours ago that she won't compete at the South African Senior Championships do to ongoing intense rehabilitation. Does that mean that if and when she competes at the Commonwealth Games she won't be in shape to throw the long throws needed if she wants to defeat Kathryn Mitchell, assuming that Mitchell competes and is in the 68-meter shape that she is in recently?
