MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has presented champion Armidale long distance runner Natasha Favotto with a NSW State Representative Certificate, recognising her success at the Australian National Cross Country Championships, held in Melbourne in August last year.

Mr Marshall said the Armidale High School sports captain was a member of the NSW All Schools Team which contested the national championships, after blitzing the state championships, claiming the 17 years 4 kilometre event by a 20 seconds.

“Natasha is an impressive and mature young woman who’s running continues to go from strength-to-strength – her achievements in the last 12 months have been remarkable,” Mr Marshall said.

Natasha has been a multi-medallist in the 1500 and 3000 metre events at a state level, often running against women two and three years her senior.

“While Natasha hasn’t medalled yet at a national level, she finished fifth in the 20 years women’s 800 metre event at the recent junior championships – a wonderful achievement,” Mr Marshall said.

“Whether it’s at cross country, or on the track, Natasha is a superb athlete who continues to improve.

“Natasha has a busy year of training and competing, all on top of her studies to complete the HSC this year, which just highlights her commitment and dedication.”
