Taneille Crase (athletics) will make her Commonwealth Games debut at Birmingham 2022 in the women’s heptathlon. Trained by Brisbane 1982 Commonwealth Games gold medallist and Los Angeles 1984 Olympic champion Glynnis Nunn, Taneille set herself the goal of making Birmingham 2022 after returning to the sport in October 2020 following eight months out due to injury. Coming away with a win at the 2021 North Queensland Championships – plus a tidy 6.17m long jump PB – the Sunnybank heptathlete looked ready to become Australia’s back-to-back national champion. Following an 11.84m shot put PB and 24.57 (+1.9) 200m PB at the December Oceania Combined Events Championship, Crase came away with the Australian title with a score of 5759 points. Making her first Australian team, she headed to the Oceania Championships in Mackay in June for her best heptathlon ever. A career-high 5945 points, Crase claimed four new PBs, including 100m hurdles (13.43), high jump (1.79m), 800m (2:19.50) and javelin (40.53m). As a result, she moved up the charts to become Australia’s 6th best heptathlete of all time. Outside of athletics, Taneille is studying for a Bachelor of Education at Griffith University.
