World Athletics Indoor Championships, Emirates Arena Glasgow – 1-3 March 2024

Hamish Kerr produced a golden moment in the high jump claiming the gold medal with a record breaking clearance of 2.36m. Kerr the bronze medallist from the last world indoor championships in Belgrade Serbia.

Kerr cleared five heights between 2.15m and 2.31m on his first attempt. He passed at 2.34m after his first attempt and raised the bar to 2.36m which he achieved on his second attempt.

Kerr was over the moon saying it was awesome to get it done.

“We’ve dreamed about it and discussed it, the team believed it was going to happen but for me it didn’t happen until it happened and now it feels so special.

“I knew I was in good form and the jumps were there and I got a good feeling from the track straight away which was a really good sign. But it was just about trying to calm the nerves and focus on my own thing which got tougher at the end.

“Probably the only thing I could have added to the dream was jumping 2.38m, which is the goal this year.

“It’s confirmation of where I’m at. I knew I was capable, but Paris is going to be a different ball game. There is going to be rounds and added pressure and expectation.”

Another Gold to New Zealand in the men’s 1500m final with Geordie Beamish timing his finishing kick to perfection to outgun the Americans to win in 3:36.54. The 27 year old was just outside his personal best of 3:36.53 from two years ago, in heading in Cole Hocker 3:36.69 and Hobbs Kessler 3:36.72.

Beamish said that for the first few minutes after crossing the finishing line he was in total shock.

“At the bell I thought there was a chance of a medal, any medal and I didn’t care what colour. It was not until 15-20 metres to go did I think that any medal was going to turn into gold. It was a blanket finish and I thought, if I get a medal, it might as well be first.”

Tom Walsh on his 32nd birthday, maintained his shot put medal collecting at the World Indoor Championships claiming the silver medal with his opening throw of 22.07m. The silver now goes with his bronze medal in 2014, gold in 2016 and 2018 and bronze in 2022. Walsh, who holds the New Zealand indoor record of 22.31m, had a series of 22.07, 21.65, 21.06, 22.03, 21.92, 21.51.

He was up against Ryan Crouser who stamped his authority on the event from round one with 22.36m. His series for the gold medal was 22.36, x, 22.00, 22.51, 22.77 (championship record), 22.69.

“It was nice to grab the whole set but I wanted a different birthday present,” said Walsh

“I felt like I gave myself a really good chance to throw a long way, I almost nailed two or three of them which is what we come here to do, so it was a little bit frustrating but I’m also glad I managed to get a medal.”

“I felt I gave myself a chance every round and that’s all I can ask for. This year is an Olympic year and an important one to get right. I feel like I’ve learned a few things this year, I’ve thrown really well I’m just saving one for later in the year.”

Jacko Gill competing alongside Walsh was fifth in the shot put. He was in fifth after opening with 20.76m and dropped to sixth in the next two rounds before reclaiming fifth with 21.69m in round four.

Gill was pretty happy overall with his effort.

“It was good I haven’t thrown much indoors or on the circuit,” he said.

“I take a lot of confidence from today. I thought previously I was a long way off the medals but today I felt I was good throw away from a medal. It was a definite improvement from me compared to the other guys.”

In her first indoor competition Maddison-Lee Wesche was out to a personal best shot put of 19.62m for fourth place. Wesche with a series of x, 15.71, 19.32, 19.33, 19.62 x was just 5cm shy of the bronze medal. Sarah Mitton of Canada won with 20.22m.

Wesche was super happy with her performance.

“It was my first indoor competition, and I couldn’t have asked for more than a PB. Being so close to a medal is tough but this gives me confidence going into Paris.

“Nerves were definitely present for the first two throws but that’s all part of the game, and I’ve been in this position before. Experience took over and I was pumped I could have three more throws. I’m happy with 19.62m and I have lots of takeaways from my first indoor comp. I’m excited to get back home and start the next build up for the outdoor season.”

Eliza McCartney collected the silver medal in the pole vault after an enthralling contest with winner Molly Caudery of Great Britain. Both cleared 4.55m on their first attempt, Caudery was over at 4.65m on her first attempt and McCartney on her second. McCartney secured 4.75m on her first clearance and Caudery on her second. With the bar at 4.80m Caudery was over on attempt number two and McCartney attempt number three. McCartney missed her first attempt at 4.85m and passed the next two opting for 4.90m, in which she went close in her second attempt. In the meantime Caudery missed her three attempts at 4.85m but won the gold medal on a countback after clearing 4.80m on her second attempt.

McCartney said she was happy to have won the medal.

“It hasn’t sunk in yet. I am just really stoked to have been a part of such a neat competition.”

McCartney explained that she was keen have a crack at the higher height.

“I was getting exhausted, and I just wanted to look at 4.90m again. It’s been many years, maybe since 2018 since I tried 4.90m. I just really felt I needed that tonight. I’m glad I did because I think I had a good attempt at 4.90 and that’s what I wanted from this competition.”

Zoe Hobbs went very close to taking the bronze medal in the final of the 60m, missing by a hundredth of a second. Hobbs advanced to the final after breaking her own Oceania and New Zealand indoor record of 7.13 from Belgrade in 2022, clocking 7.09. Hobbs improved the record to 7.06 with fourth in the final.

Hobbs said it was an awesome night.

 “I executed the race, and I was only 0.01 away from a medal, I was that close. The biggest takeaway was I was able to back this up through the rounds and I got quicker and quicker.

“I was probably more nervous for the semi-final because I drew a tough heat, and I knew I had to execute that race in order to progress. Once I was in that final, I felt like I could relax a little more which helped.

“I got a good start in the final, but the transition was not so good. I then felt like I was coming home super quick. I only needed another metre to get that medal. It is confidence boost, and all good preparation towards the Paris Olympics.”

Maia Ramsden was tenth in the women’s 1500m final in 4:06.88.

New Zealand indoor records were set by James Preston with 1:47.59 in the heats of the 800m, Maia Ramsden with 4:06.51 PB in the heats of the 1500m and Zoe Hobbs in the semi-final of the 60m 7.09 and in the final 7.06. Hamish Kerr HJ 2.36m.

McKinnon Shield #9, Mt Smart Stadium – 2 March 2024

Welrè Olivier, in Auckland before the Sir Graeme Douglas International Presented by Harcourts Cooper & Co, provided some of the best triple jumping seen at Mt Smart since the 1990 Auckland Commonwealth Games.

While not up to the record breaking form of last week in Christchurch where he set a New Zealand resident record of 16.33m, Olivier did soar out over 16 metres with a wind assisted 16.04m.

Olivier was not greatly impressed with his workout.

“Not greatly impressed with my jumping today, but I’ll take it, it was alright.

“The wind wasn’t a bother it was just my timing wasn’t correct so I couldn’t have it the way I wanted it to be.

“The New Zealand record in Christchurch was a lucky jump as I had the legal wind, but the same thing there my timing was out.

“I’m basing myself here in Auckland for the next week and I’ll activate a bit more for the Sir Graeme Douglas meeting,” he said.

Then it is the nationals in Wellington and back to South Africa.

Joseph Millar was sharp in the 60 metres edging out Kadin Taylor in 6.95. Taylor came back later in the day to win the 100m in 10.60. Zachary Orbell a week after setting a T35 Para Athlete 100m record of 13.57 lowered the record further to 13.46 +1.5. Mark Lambert set a New Zealand masters M50 100m record of 11.56 +2.0. This breaks former All Black Bruce McPhail’s 1987 record of 11.57. Wayne Holroyd M47 recorded 54.74 over 400m.

In the Auckland junior mile championships Leo Green set an Auckland B11 record of 5:02.91, breaking Liam Back’s 2014 record of 5:10.53. And Leah Marais set an Auckland G13 record of 5:10.14 breaking Julia Giurgiu 2014 record of 5:27.97.

Caleb Wagener held on well to the pace provided by Luke Hitchcock in the mile to finish second to Hitchcock in a fresh Auckland under 18 record of 4:11.80. This breaks Mathew Mildenhall’s 2005 time of 4:14.13.
