2021 Australian National Competition
May 15-16th, Runaway Bay Queensland.
Opening the day was welcome to country ceremony preformed by Paul Craft (Organiser) and family, and with warm up out the way we got into it. With calm winds in the morning and expecting to increase throughout the day the order of events were MTA, Fast Catch and Endurance before lunch then we went into Trick Catch/Doubling, Accuracy and Australian Round to finish off the day.
Was a great turn out of competitions and overall was a great fun day. And for the first time in Australian Competition history we had an unbreakable tie for 1st place between West Australian Grant Perry and NSW thrower Takeshi Honda. Across the 6 events they each took out three 1st place, two 2nd place and a 4th place each.
Christene Metzakis set two new Australia Ladies records - Fast Catch with a time of 26.84 seconds beating her previous record of 36.00 seconds set in 2005 and Endurance with 27 catch with the previous record of 24 catches set in 1998.
