14 July 2013

 

 

Record-holding runner Audrey Gregan has been invited as a gold level member of the Athletics NZ Potential Performance Squad for the 2020 Olympic Games. This means the 16-year-old has been identified as having potential to place in the top 16 at the 2020 Olympic Games.

 

Audrey is the Auckland record holder in the U18 women’s 3000m and 5000m events, Athletics NZ 3000m champion and holds the Auckland and North Island Secondary Schools title for 1500m and 3000m.

Her next venture however, will be travelling to Ukraine in July for the 2013 IAAF World Youth Championships. Audrey has been running since she was 12 and is coached by Marianne Duston, the College’s very own Head of Careers and running coach.
