JAI CONQUERS THE MARATHON
Congratulations to Jai Birch-Edmonds who competed in his first marathon in the Melbourne Marathon which was held on Sunday October 14th. Jai is a seasoned athlete who has competed at State and National level in Cross Country. He was hoping to break the 3 hour barrier; however, his performance was simply outstanding as he recorded a time of 2 hours and 38 minutes to finish 30th overall. He averaged 37 minutes per 10 kilometres which is less than 4 minutes per kilometre continuously for 42K. To get a full appreciation of his performance, I would suggest you go to an athletics track and run 2 1/2 laps in less than 4 minutes, then think of doing it 42 times without stopping.
