Sydney Frontrunner Matt Webster won silver in a challenging 800m race at the World Masters Games yesterday – in his first attempt at track racing.

Making the finals was a great result in itself, but Matt took up the challenge and steamed around the the track and in the final straight passed three other runners to win the silver behind a former national champion.

He then packed his gear and drove from Homebush to the Parramatta park course to compete in the 8K cross country.

Still tired after his 800m race Matt achieved a remarkable first place in 27m 42s. Two outstanding results in one day.

And there is more to come as Matt takes on the relays with three other Frontrunners in the 4X400m race which is the final event of the track and field meet.
