Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 with 2 comments
"Our Lauren" is off to the Commonwealth Games to compete in the 400m hurdles. As Australian champion for the 4th time, and having broken the A qualifier three times this year, she was an automatic qualifier for the Games team. Lauren is in the peak of form and we wish her all the best. The Games will be held in October in New Delhi.
Lauren is the 21 year old daughter of speedygoose Neil Boden.
