Welcome to the SSV Virtual Track and Field

All Victorian students are welcome to take part in this great opportunity. There are several ways you can be involved. SSV is not looking for the best performance, we are looking for students to give it a try.

By taking part in this great event, you will not only score points for your school, but you will also be improving yourself every time you try. There is nothing better than self-improvement and personal bests.

 

WHY NOT GIVE IT A SHOT

There are several ways that you can be involved, you can take part in one or all of the events. SSV is offering a limited range of Track and Field disciplines. Why not give each one a go, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

 


Please note the standing results publicly published includes gender.




COMPETE LIKE RICHARD COLMAN

Team Vic Alumni Richard Colman is a very decorated T53 Paralympic athlete. Richard is a four-time Paralympian who has eight international medals to his name. This includes two gold and two silver Paralympic medals, that is a remarkable achievement. We value Richard as an Ambassador for SSV.

If you are a multi-class athlete, we would love you to give any of these events a try. Then share it with SSV by submitting your performance.

 



SPRINT LIKE MORGAN MITCHELL

Olympian Morgan Mitchell originally started as a sprinter and has now transitioned to 800m and 1500m distances. Why not give the sprints a go and see if you can improve your time.

To run like Morgan simply mark out a distance of your choice and have someone time you as you run, then submit your time and distance and share it with SSVThe distances are; 60m, 100m, 200m, 400m.

 


 

RUN LIKE KELLY PEEL (NEE HETHERINGTON)

SSV Ambassador Kelly Peel (nee Hetherington) started her love of running within school sport. Kelly has gone on to compete on the world stage. Mark out an 800m or 1500m route and run (or walk) the distance as fast as you can. Once you have completed your distance, share your performance with SSV.

 




JUMP LIKE BROOKE STRATTON

Olympian, Team Vic Alumni and SSV Ambassador Brooke Stratton is stand out on the long jump runway. Breaking state records throughout her amazing career, Brooke now holds the Australian Women's Long Jump record with a huge jump of 7.05m. Grab a tape measure and see how mind-blowingly far that is. We'd love you to give a standing long jump, or standing tiple jump a go. 

Standing Long jump: To jump like Brooke simply stand with your feet together and jump as far as you can, landing with your feet together. Measure from where you left the ground to where you landed, then submit your distance and share it with SSV.

Standing Triple Jump: To try your hand at the standing Triple Jump, simply give your self some room for a short run up (around 3meters) and then ensure that you complete a hop, then a step, and then jump. Measure from where you last left the ground to where you landed, then submit your distance and share it with SSV.

 


 

THROW LIKE BEN VOOGD

Although Ben Voogd is only 18 years old, he has already represented Australia wearing green and gold. Ben is a master at shot put, discus and hammer throw.

To throw like Ben, simply grab a tennis ball and place it in your neck and then push it as far as you can. Measure from your toes to where the ball first hits the ground. Once you have given this a try, simply share your performance with SSV by submitting your attempts.

 




WALK LIKE A TALLENT

The Olympic dream was alive and well in the Tallent family. Both Jared and his young sister Rachel represented Australia in the Track & Field discipline of walks. That's a pretty unique story. Jared is a valued member of the SSV Ambassador family. Rachel is a Team Vic Alumni athlete having come through the SSV pathway. 

To walk like a Tallent simply mark out a distance of either 800m or 1500m, then walk it as quickly as you can, once it is done please submit your time to SSV.

 


 


COMBINE IT LIKE CELESTE MUCCI

There isn't too much this young woman can't do on the athletics track. Celeste is a heptathlete which means her competition includes seven events. Although Celeste is only 20 years old, she has already competed at the Commonwealth Games and has her eyes set on the 2021 Olympics to be held in Tokyo.

To do it like Celeste, give the following events a go, in this order, 100m sprint, standing long jump, tennis ball shotput and 800m run. Once you have done all these, submit your results and share your performance with SSV.
