Sydney University wheelchair track star Angie Ballard carried her world-beating form from 2015 into the new year with a strong showing at the International Paralympics Committee Athletics Grand Prix in Canberra over the weekend.

The former SUS Elite Athlete Program scholarship holder dominated day one of competition winning gold in the women’s wheelchair 100m, 400m and 1500m events.

Ballard made a clean sweep of her events when she returned on day two to take honours in the wheelchair 200m and 800m events.

“It’s just good to get some good racing done on a fast track, and to come away with a few wins is a great thing to,” Ballard told Athletics Australia.

“It’s awesome to know that I am faster now than at the same time in 2015. I broke two world records last year off a slower preparation so that’s exciting. If this is an indication of how the Paralympic year will go it is a great place to be.”
