RESERVIST Lt Daniel Lemoto,
of AFSU, travelled so far and
came so, so close.
He finished 1/100th of a sec-
ond behind Flt-Lt Spencer Cox in
the 35-39 years 100m race at the
Oceania Area Championships in
Cairns from June 27-29.
"That's about 5cm," Flt-Lt Cox
It was not the first time they had
In fact Lt Lemoto had applied to
be part of the official ADF team for
the competition, but left the full-
time Army in April and now lives
Lt Lemoto said Flt-Lt Cox had
a good start and that was the dif-
"I saw him on my left hand side
and thought I'm going to have to
start pushing," he said.
"I was actually about a metre
and a half behind at the start and
was still trying to close the gap
over the last few metres."
With 10.99sec his best electron-
ic time for the 100m, Lt Lemoto is
training six days a week and plans
to race at the Pan Pacific Masters
Games in November on the Gold
Coast before attempting to smash
the Tasmanian state record at the
titles in 2013. He also intends to
enter Australia's most famous
120m footrace, the 2013 Stawell
Gift in Victoria.
The official ADF team at the
Oceania Area Championships was
Flt-Lt Cox, Lt Adon Cadona, of
ASEME, and Pte Amanda Morris,
The competition brought togeth-
er more than 200 Australians com-

New Zealand and Marshall Islands.
Among the competitors was

4 x 100 team, the Japanese women's

The world record holder for the
pole vault, Sergei Bubka, was at
the championships in his role as
International Amateur Athletics
Federation senior vice-president.
Bubka, from Ukraine, has
won six consecutive International
Association of Athletics Federation
world championships, an Olympic
gold medal and broke the world
record 35 times. He was the first to
clear 6m and his last world record
in 1994 still stands today at 6.14m.
Lt Cadona competed in the
open men's 200m (sixth in western

division, fourth overall in 25.98sec
and the open women's 400m
(fourth in western division and fifth
overall in 58.45sec).
Pte Morris was one of the many
people who posed for a photo with
the great Bubka, who he said was
quiet and kept to himself.
"However, he allowed lots and
lots of people to have a photo with
him and managed to hold that
smile," she said.
"Oceania was great fun and
although there were only the three
of us representing Defence we had
a really fun time together and made
the most of it.
"It was nice being surrounded
by people from so many different
cultures and countries who all love
She said her training leading up
to the comp was average and she was
pleasantly surprised with her times.
"It has given me the motivation
to keep training hard and get a lot
faster for the next chance I get to
race for Defence," Pte Morris said.
