Jordan, Worthington cap superb runs in series

A GRAND final victory and aggregate honours capped superb runs by Geoff Jordan and Mandy Worthington in this season's Flack Advisory distance series for athletes.

The long-running series is held in conjuction with the Thursday night track racing run by the Bendigo and District Cycling Club. 

Jordan raced to victory in the 1600m grand final.

Now his focus is on this weekend's Athletics Bendigo classics to be run at the Bendigo International Madison carnival.

The Bendigo Harriers' president has entered for the Hilson Builders-backed Sally Conroy Memorial 200m and the Flack Advisory-sponsored Richard Kitt Memorial 1600m.

Jordan was runner-up in last year's Richard Kitt Memorial on the Barnard Street track.

Confidence is up following his run in the distance series final.

"It was the first time in a few weeks that I ran pain-free," Jordan said of his recovery from the Oceania Masters and the Victoria Country championships.

He has a mark of 28 seconds for the Richard Kitt Memorial and will race off 24m in the second of three heats in the Sally Conroy Memorial.

South Bendigo's Mandy Worthington has competed in athletics for more than 30 years and was rapt to have won the distance series aggregate.

"It's a great honour to have won this award," Worthington said before another training session at the Tom Flood Sports Centre.

Consistency was the key as Worthington won at least one heat and racked up several minor placings throughout the 11-heat series.
