Old Fintonian qualifies for the World Athletics Championships and Commonwealth Games

28 June 2017

Congratulations to Old Fintonian, Georgia Griffith ('14) who has qualified for selection in both the World Athletics Championships in London in August this year and the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast for both the 800m and 1500m events.

In qualifying for the 800m, Georgia ran the fastest time by an Australian since 2011. If selected for the World Championships, she will become the first Australian ever to complete the 800m/1500m double at a World Championships.
