Event Details





Hawke’s Bay sprinter Georgia Hulls knows the day will come when she has to decide between the 400 and 200 metres.

In the meantime the 19-year-old Hastings Athletics Club member will continue to do well at both. In her first year as a senior Hulls won the open women’s 400m title in 55.09s at the national track and field championships in Christchurch on Saturday. The following day she finished second to Taranaki’s Zoe Hobbs, who completed the 100-200m double, in the 200m with a time of 23.65s.

“Eventually I will move to the 400. But I will still do both for another couple of summers at least. The speed I get from the 200 helps my 400 and the fitness I get from the 400 helps the 200,” Hulls explained.

“While I wasn’t unhappy with my 400 time I was looking for a bit more … it was more of a tactical race,” Hulls said.
