World Championships - Emelia Surch - Top 4 Finish!


The A.B. Community would like to congratulate Old Collegian and A.B. Athletics Coach, Emelia Surch, following her amazing performance at the Under 20 World Championships in Columbia!

Competing in both the Long Jump and Hurdles, Emelia did an outstanding job representing herself and our country. Her best performance of the meet came in the Long Jump, where she jumped 6.45m (25cm personal best) to finish fourth in the world.

This performance was the equal best place ever by an Australian in the event, and the longest distance ever jumped by an Australian at the World Under 20’s Championships!

We are so proud of you Emelia - please join us in celebrating her extraordinary results!
