    Episode 53: 17 February 2021 featuring Hana Basic & Morgan McDonald.

    In another big episode of Down the Track, Sean and Tim interview two of the most exciting prospects in Australian athletics - Hana Basic & Morgan McDonald.

    A World Junior representative in 2014, Hana Basic has come out of the Covid period in great form over the 100m. In a two part interview we talk to Hana about her recent performances in the Tasmanian gifts before setting the track on fire back in Victoria. In interview no.1 we get to know more about Hana... her life in and away from athletics and her goals and aspirations.  Hana also talked about what it would take to break the 11.5 mark for the 100m, which then leads to interview no.2 recorded after her 11.45 performance at High Velocity Club.

    A great personality who is now delivering performances that will put her in the eyes of the Olympic selectors, get to know Hana in an entertaining two part interview.

    Like many of the US based Australians, Morgan McDonald's performances often go under the radar. With an International career that started in 2013 as a junior at the World Cross Country Championships, Morgan is now carving out a career as a professional athlete in the States. What that means for his running and life in general is delved into as he talks candidly about his performances and the life he is building in terms of the training environment, coaching structure and how to stay occupied in what can at times be a very one dimensional world.

    Sean and Tim close the episode wrapping up the latest domestic and international news. Pre lockdown 3 was a busy time in Victorian athletics and results from the Victorian Multi, Mile & 5000m championships are discussed together with the latest Specialist group news. Sean also provides a summary of the recent ACT Championships in Canberra. And heading back to the US, the recent results of Oli Hoare, Morgan MCDonald and Charlie Hunter make for good discussion points.

    And in what may amount to a major turning point in the history of Australian Athletics, the appointment of Kate Palmer to head the One Sport initiative closes out an entertaining episode of DTT.
