Athletics Essendon is probably the only club in Australia who has had representatives at the last 13 Olympics and the last 14 Commonwealth Games. Plaques for 17 Olympians are erected on a wall at Moonee Valley Athletic Centre. Essendon has won the H. H. Hunter Shield for best overall performance at Victorian Championships in 8 of the past 11 seasons including the most recent – 2015, 2016 and 2017.
