Melbourne Track Classic 2020

After being (allegedly) lost to the promise of Nitro some years back, the Melbourne Track Classic was back in 2020 with the expectation of some epic competitions. Essendon had superstar Linden Hall taking to the track for the first time this season, some young guns moving swiftly and the red and black of Essendon and the AJ Jumps squad dominating the triple jump scenes.

Here is the full wrap up of results from our athletes.
