Rawlinson continues her return to competition

Jana Rawlinson has continued her return to competition following the birth of son Cornelis in December, winning the 400m hurdles at the European circuit meeting in Geneva, Switzerland overnight.
.

In only her second 400m hurdles since racing to victory at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Rawlinson (nee Pittman) won in 55.19 seconds from Belgium’s Elodie Ouedraogo (56.07) and Dora Jemaa from France (57.07).

The time is an improvement on the 55.52 second Rawlinson produced at her season debut at the European Champion Clubs Cup in Albuferia, Portugal, a fortnight ago and moves her from 12th to 7th on the world list for 2007.

American Tiffany Ross-Smith holds the fastest time in the world in 2007, with 54.34 set in Santo Domingo in May. World record holder, reigning world champion and Rawlinson’s rival Yulia Nosova from Russia, is second fastest with 54.41.

Benita Johnson returned to New York a week after defending her title at the 29th Freihofer's Run for Women last weekend. This time its was the New York mini 10k in Central Park with 2007 World Cross Country champion Lornah Kiplagat taking out the event for the third consecutive time.

The former Kenyan, who now represents the Netherlands, charged to a 25-second lead at half way and although she slowed in the final 5km, she still won by eight seconds (32:10) from New Zealand’s Kim Smith (32:18) with 2006 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Mara Yamauchi of Great Britain just edging our Benita Johnson for third in a sprint finish (both in 32.21)

In other results, West Australian Kim Mickle was 5th in the javelin at the Lille Meeting on 8 June with 57.06m.

At the NCCA division 1 championships in Sacramento, California, Canberra’s Zoe Buckman finished 6th in her heat of the 800m in 2:08.27.
