Alana SIM wins two national medalsPosted by: pressable | Posted on: May 23, 2023
West Australian athlete Alana SIM has won a silver medal in the U20 4x100m and bronze in the 4x400m relay (below) at the 2023 Australian Athletics Championships.
After winning state silver at the WA Athletics Championships earlier this year in the 400m she now adds the national silver and bronze medals to her 2023 collection. It was her first ever national championships finishing 19th overall in the individual U20 400m with a time of 1.00.00 which was her second fastest race ever.
Only starting training in December 2022 she left her run late but has made excellent progress since joining Paul and Sprinting Fast as an apprentice athlete and coach.
"If I had told Alana in December she would win the U20 state 400m silver and improve her personal best by more than 1.5 seconds, win two national medals, and also improve her 60m and 200m times, all within 3-4 months. She would of thought I was crazy" says coach Paul. "Sometimes what seems impossible IS possible".
