Top 10 finish for Stratton at Worlds

Tuesday, 08 October 2019

On the final day of the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Doha, Brooke Stratton jumped her way to 10th place in the women’s long jump final.

Stratton’s opening jump of 6.46m was her best of the night, and unfortunately was unable to secure her a top eight finish and another three jumps.

Days earlier, the VIS 1500m duo of Linden Hall and Georgia Griffith both made it through to the semi-final.

In the fastest semi-final in World Championship history, Hall came home in a solid 10th place, clocking 4:06.39. In the other semi-final, Griffith, also crossed in the line in 10th place in a time of 4:17.15.

In the opening week of the World Champs VIS' Jemima Montag also finished inside the top 10.
