Australian triathlon champion Celia Sullohern proved distance running is her specialty, when she claimed victory in the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday.
The 25-year-old from New South Wales slashed five minutes off her personal best, crossing the finish line in two hours, 29 minutes, 28 seconds.
The win lifted her overall position in the 2017 Australian rankings to fourth, just behind well-known marathon duo Lisa Weightman and Jess trengrove followed by Virginia Moloney.
With just three spots available in the women’s marathon at Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Sullohern has a big decision to make – distance runner or triathlete?
The Commonwealth Games holds special memories for Katrina Morrow. She has attended four games to date – two as a competitor, two as a spectator and now her association with the Games continues on the Gold Coast with her appointment as an athletics Technical Official.
