By Matt Lynch This is going to be a full-on, comprehensive, top to bottom deep dive of the 2019 Australian/New Zealand sprinting season. Or not. I don’t know. You can decide at the end. Either way, I’ll attempt to review, evaluate and calculate the season of every track event that doesn’t have a bell.

In April 2019, Irish-born Australian Sinead Diver, moved to third on the Aussie women’s all-time list after finishing seventh at the London Marathon with a time of 2:24:11. This time was also a 2020 Tokyo Olympic qualifier and the fastest time by an Australian in 12 years. The only Australian women to have run quicker are Benita Willis and Lisa Ondieki. We caught up with Sinead for a flash interview.
It is part and parcel of an athlete's career that they are judged purely on their results, and quite often the journey behind the results is ignored. Rohan Browning has lived both the extreme highs and lows of this journey, since he began his athletics career in 2014.  Browning was discovered by his current (and only) coach, Andrew Murphy, whilst attending Trinity Grammar School in Sydney. The path towards becoming Australia's equal third fastest 100m sprinter of all-time has been filled with setbacks. However, despite this, Browning is without a doubt one of the top sprinters this country has produced. And he is just 21 years of age.
Elite athletes are like everyone else and contend with numerous day-to-day life challenges.  Balancing these issues with what is required to be an elite athlete is something Brooke Stratton knows all too well.
Have you ever given something everything you had and expected something amazing to happen, only to unknowingly sabotage yourself and your success? That was essentially my 2019 season in a nutshell.
By Steve Moneghetti People who know me know I don’t believe in perfection but that you prepare meticulously, be on the start line in the best shape possible and then execute your race plan as well as you can. After that the result will be often determined by many other factors, but you finish knowing that you have done everything you could.
The decision has been made to publish Australian Athlete magazine once a year, in time for Christmas.
