46 Years and Counting: The Unbeatable Little A’s Record


Graham Garnett’s U7 Boys 70m record at the 1973 State Track & Field Championships is yet to be trumped, and remains unchallenged in the latest LANSW records.

Athletics Australia and Little Athletics Australia announced a proposed merger between the two iconic Australian sporting organisations — the OneAthletics Proposal will create a new National Sporting Organisation to be responsible for athletics in Australia.
