Life member Allan Cook has recently been selected to compete on the world athletics stage again, this time in the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Beijing, China in late August.
The world athletics championships are 2nd only to the Olympics. The world masters athletics in cooperation with the IAAF have scheduled two masters events only during the 10 days of competition, one of those events is the Mens over 50 years 800m and Allan is one of 9 athletes from around the world selected to compete at this elite championships.
Allan is part of the official Australian team attending this event and was surprised but delighted to hear of his inclusion in the team. As you can imagine he is absolutely over the moon to finally make an Australian athletic team.
We wish Allan all the best in the lead up to the games and we will look forward with great anticipation to his event.
