Community Nitro takes athletics to the next level

June 2019

Athletics NSW launched an exciting new event in May which saw more than 100 young athletes compete in a team-based, energetic and fun format at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre.

Athletes aged 7 – 15 worked in teams across sprint, distance and field events, using tactics and strategy to achieve a common goal.

Track events included a 60m sprint, 150m sprint and elimination 800m as well as a 2 x 100m relay and medley relay. Field events included long jump, shot put and vortex throw.

Community Nitro encourages friendships and a sense of community while having fun and practicing athletics.

Following the success of the first event, Athletics NSW plans to hold future events across NSW with five events to take place each year at metro and regional locations.
