LONG-TIME CurraNZ ambassador, Joasia Zakrzewski, has been crowned Scottish Athletics Masters Performer of the Year 2020.
It is the second time our hugely accomplished endurance athlete has received this award.
In March, Jo found herself stranded in Australia with COVID lockdown and has been getting involved in the running scene there, by racing at elite invitational state and national events.
In July, she set five new British and Scottish records on her 24-hour race debut at the Australian Institute of Sport-hosted event in Canberra. She covered a massive 236.561km and finished second overall (story here).
Then two weeks ago, Jo broke two long-standing State records in the Central Coast 10,000m and one-hour track championships (pictured, left). She set a new overall female record of 38:26, (plus the over-40s female record of 40:23) set in 1991, with a sizzling time of 36:49.
For good measure, the doctor from Dumfries smashed the one-hour distance record of 14.296km, set in 2010, with a lung-busting 16.235km.
Jo has been using CurraNZ for her training and racing at top international level since 2014 and has amassed many titles and medals, putting her amongst the top all-time runners in Britain.
