Sprint sensation Zoe Hobbs has ended 2021 on a high, breaking her own NZ resident 100m record and claiming the national women’s 100m record outright (which she previously shared with Michelle Seymour).

Competing at the McKinnon Shield meet at Mt Smart Stadium, Zoe crossed the line in 11.27 (+1.7), bettering her previous record of 11.32. Zoe was closely followed by Georgia Hulls (11.44), Livvy Wilson (11.62), Portia Bing (11.85), Symone Tafunai (11.85), Briana Stephenson (11.94), Jade Henley-Smith (12.32) and Emilia Goldsmith (12.73).

“Training has been going well, so I was hoping to come out and get a good time before the end of the year,” said Zoe.

“I’m very happy with today and nice to do it in my last race of the year,” said Zoe. “It was perfect conditions, and I was hoping to maximise on that.”
