Grant Perry has claimed his third straight overall Australian Championship. At Bob Blackburn Park in Perth on Sunday, he finished ahead of Victorian Rob Croll and fellow West Australian Gary Mitchell. This followed team trials the day before, both being used to choose the two Australian teams to participate in next week’s World Cup (use the link on the left to keep up-to-date on that one).
A number of top international throwers also participated at the Nationals, with Takeshi Honda from Japan actually taking first place (but not eligible to be Aussie Champ, of course).
At the BAA Annual Meeting, Nick Pritchard was one of several changes to the club committee, becoming the new President.
