Sydney University Elite Athlete scholarship holder Jordan Mulhearn has won the NSW Under 20 10km Walking Championships, which were held As part of the NSW Short Walks on Monday at Penrith.

Mulhearn was happy with the win despite some difficult factors.

“I was quite pleased with how I performed”, he said. “It wasn’t a great time but I walked a pretty solid tactical race. The course wasn’t great, it was very hot and I didn’t get much training in through exams.”

Two weeks earlier Mulhearn finished in ninth place at the 2011 National Championships in the 10 mile distance.
