Club athlete and Wesley student  Montag, representing Victoria, easily won the under 14 event at the meet in the Melbourne suburb of Doncaster. In an outstanding performance and despite the heat, Jemima defeated the opposition convincingly winning by over 20 seconds in the time of 14 minutes 49.56 seconds. Jemima has attracted the attention of the top Australian walk coaches and selectors – so hopefully this is just the beginning of a great future in race walking.
