400m heats [edit: this result is a fiction created by the organisers; there were no M55 400m heats held!] White, Ken M56 qualified for the final, equal-2nd fastest 61:00. It serves as a warning - are you master of the computer system, or is the computer system master of you?

Lots of silver, and stay tuned for Sunday's results.... but I was right about Sunday being the best day.
The first speedygoose gold medal of the championships was won on Sunday by Katie in the W40 5000m.
And Kathy Sims ran ~21:12 in her 5000m, chopping ~6 seconds off an Anne Young ACT W55 record that  Anne set in 1992.
