Lisa Weightman has run a personal best time of 32:17 in the 10km race at the Gold Coast marathon festival, and in doing so, eclipsing a 14-year-old race record.
The previous 10km Gold Coast record was held by Kylie Risk in a time of 33:26. For Weightman the record breaking run comes just a fortnight after clocking her previous personal time at the Launceston 10km event.
“I wasn’t expecting that at all – that was my best run ever,” the 2010 Commonwealth Games marathon bronze medalist said.
“My previous best time was 32:45 which I clocked at the Launceston 10K two weeks ago. To have two PB’s in two weeks is amazing.”
