List Of Australian Athletics Champions (Women)

Australian Athletics Championships for women have been conducted since 1930.

At the first National Championships, only three events (100 yards, 80 metres hurdles, and High Jump) were contested, but the programme has since expanded to include the full track and field programme. Until 1963, championships were only held once every two years.

The most successful athlete at the Championships has been thrower Gael Martin who won 20 events in the 1970s and 1980s.

Australia's national champions in athletics are listed below, by event.

Famous quotes containing the words champions, list and/or australian:

    Did all the lets and bars appear
    To every just or larger end,
    Whence should come the trust and cheer?
    Youth must its ignorant impulse lend—
    Age finds place in the rear.
    All wars are boyish, and are fought by boys,
    The champions and enthusiasts of the state:
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Lovers, forget your love,
    And list to the love of these,
    She a window flower,
    And he a winter breeze.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The Australian mind, I can state with authority, is easily boggled.
    Charles Osborne (b. 1927)
