PB for Little While Hough and Browning Look to Finals
Posted on August 3, 2022 by NSW Institute of Sport
NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) scholarship holder Rosemary Little has set a new personal best in the 100m T33 / 34 on the track at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Making her Commonwealth Games debut, 39-year-old Rosemary finished seventh in a time of 23.05.
The versatile athlete competed in shot put at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and has also competed internationally in hand cycling and Para rowing.
Earlier in the session NSWIS scholarship holder Nick Hough contested the men’s 110m hurdles finishing fourth in the heat in a time of 13.62. The heat was won by Jamaican Hansle Parchment in 13.33, and Nick now awaits times to see if he will progress to the finals.
Still thumbs up and still smiling 👍😁
A tough preparation for 110m Hurdler Nick Hough but he pushes through for 4th in 13.62 (+0.6).
