KYNETON runner Liam Monaghan was one of more than 200 junior competitors who took to the track in the McDonald’s Little Athletics events during the Australia Post Stawell Gift.
Monaghan, who competes in under-16 events, crossed the line in third place in the 800m mixed final.
McDonald’s Gisborne licensee manager Tim Westover said the Stawell gift is one of the best athletic events on the Australian sporting calendar.
“We are so pleased to offer kids like Liam the opportunity to participate in the excitement of the weekend and see some world class athletes in action,” he said.
The annual athletics carnival was held over the Easter long weekend.
