Wisil to Take On Top Three Australian Sprinters in Preparation of World Championships

With a big weekend ahead of her in Canberra, Wisil will be competing against three top Australians as she continues her journey to run the world championship 100m and 200m qualifying times of 11.26secs and 23.10 seconds individually.

The Sprint Sensation will face her toughest race of the season yet with Australian Rio Olympians Melissa Breen, Morgan Mitchell and Ella Nelson out to test their speed for the Summer of Athletics Grand Prix Meet.

Local favourite Breen who is getting back to form after a slow start to the season will run in both the 100m and 200m aiming to turn the tables on Wisil who got the better of her over both distances in their previous meeting at the ACT Championships, in Brisbane.

Olympic 200m semi-finalist, Ella Nelson, who ran 22.50 seconds in Rio will contest both the 100m and 200m. Nelson who has just returned from a training stint in Phoenix Arizona will be her first outdoor competition of the season.

Australia’s top ranked 400m runner Morgan Mitchell who clocked 51.25 seconds last year and also made the semi-final in Rio will also be participating in the 200m sprint.

The track at the Australian Institute of Sport has a reputation for producing fast times and although Wisil hit the 100m mark of 11.26 on February 11 the following wind on that occasion was over the legal limit for record purposes.

Apart from training for the World Championships, Toea is also using her current meets and international fixtures this year for, 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast Australia, 2019 Pacific Games in Tonga and 2020 Olympic Games.
