Athletics: Stawell Gift Audio

Women’s 120m Final
Stawell, 6 April 2015
Grace O’Dwyer in 13.4 seconds

Australia’s richest race is now equally as profitable for female athletes, as it is for the men. As if the athletics gods sought to mark this step-forward in sporting equality, the youngest athlete in the field won. 16-year-old Victorian, Grace O’Dwyer, ran through the famous gates first to take home $40k. Queenslander Murray Goodwin won the men’s event in 12.10 seconds. With 134-years of history, the race is daring you to listen without goose-bumps.
