Locals take home a swag of medals at Masters Games

Jim Christian and Karen Sander with their medal haul.  

ACROSS the weekend of March 9-10 local athletes Karen Sander and Kim Christian competed at the Queensland State Masters Athletic Championships with the two taking home a swag of medals.  

Karen had not competed in any athletics since school and surprised herself by coming home with three bronze medals.  

Jim first represented Wide Bay District Primary School at the Queensland Championships as a year nine student, and he has continued in sport throughout his life and now competes in the 85-89 age group.  

Jim walked away with four gold medals and one silver and is a firm believer in “if you can move, keep on moving!”
