She will now turn her attention to Commonwealth Games qualifiers in December. PHOTO: BW MEDIA •From page 1 “It was the first time I’ve missed that much time out of training. I knew I hadn’t had the best buildup but I just had to get here and give it everything,” said Hannah. Her pace in the pool broke two Canterbury short course records. Her times of 2min 15.56sec in the 200m individual medley and 1min 3.63sec in the 100m individual medley are both new record times. Hannah is currently in Auckland attending a threeday Swimming New Zealand SPORTS Golden girl in the pool development camp working with high performance coaches and New Zealand Olympic swimmer Emma Robinson. The next big event for the Lincoln local is the New Zealand Commonwealth Games qualifying event in December in Auckland. “I’m not going up there with the objective to qualify for the games, that’s still a little way off,” said Hannah. “Just to be in that environment and see where I need to get to will be amazing.” Milligan on Bathurst podium Success on debut at Mt Panorama • BY Gordon Findlater IT WAS a near perfect Bathurst debut for Prebbleton’s Jack Milligan, who climbed the podium at Mount Panorama. Milligan, 21, came into the weekend with the high goal of getting a top-10 finish and it didn’t take him long to exceed that. The highlight of the week was third place in the second race in the Toyota 86 Racing Jack Milligan Series. Milligan got a good getaway in race two to slot into third around the outside of turn one and into second by turn two. He very nearly won the race after diving around the outside of leader and ultimate winner Dylan Gulson. But the move didn’t come off, and cost him second place to Jimmy Vernon. Milligan also set the fastest racing lap time, just one tenth slower than the Toyota 86 lap record. Earlier in the week, Milligan FAST: Jack Milligan was the only Kiwi competing in the Toyota 86s at Bathurst. ​ PHOTO: MATTHEW HANSEN showed he was on the pace by finishing Friday’s qualifying session with the seventh fastest time. In the opening race, he improved on his starting position, eventually moving into fourth spot. The Bathurst experience saw Milligan take on some of Australia’s up and coming motorsport stars, as well as stalwarts like Leanne Tander and David Brabham. SELWYN TIMES Milligan was the only New Zealander in the 36-car field of Toyota 86s, one of the main support class for the V8 Supercars. He secured the trip to Bathurst to compete in that round of the Aussie 86 series as part of the rookie title in the New Zealand Toyota 86 Championship. His attention now turns to the NZ Toyota 86 Championship, which starts with the opening round at Pukekohe on November 3.
