On 23 February 2019 Hawkes Bay/Gisborne Athletics centre will be hosting the “Jayda Akuhata-Brown Memorial Throws Meet” to be held at the Sports Park in Hastings.
The meet is in memory of Wairoa and HBG athlete Jayda Akuhata-Brown whom tragically passed away in August 2018 at just 14 years old. Jayda was part of the Hawkes Bay/Gisborne Athletics Academy and had represented Hawkes Bay/Gisborne at national and international level been named in 2017 NZ Children’s Athletics team that competed in Australia. Jayda was a promising thrower competing in Shot Put, Discus & Javelin, a huge talent that was a massive loss to the sport.
The aim is to make this meet an annual event attracting some of our countries best throwers.
This meet will be open for athletes aged 7yrs through to senior & masters grades. With all four throws on the programme as well as a throwers 100m and long jump.
Jayda touched the hearts of many athletes, coaches and club members from all over New Zealand so we would love to make this meet a hugely successful meet for all and have your centre athletes join us for the very first and future meets.
