News: Hunt, Chapple lead all-Aussie assault in Japan

Article by Athletics Australia

Australian distance running has enjoyed an outstanding weekend of results with New South Welshman Jeff Hunt and Victoria’s Nikki Chapple each posting medal-winning performances in Japan.

Competing for the first time over the full 42.195km marathon distance at the weekend’s Beppu-Oita event, Hunt’s time of 2:11.00 was the fastest ever performance on debut by an Australian, surpassing the 1986 Commonwealth Games bronze medal effort of national distance legend Steve Moneghetti.
