PHILLIP Island com-
petitor Jamie Robinson
showed his true fitness
when he won the Ad-
vanced Male section in a
challenging event for the
tion, Beyond Blue.
The 2015 Fit Challenge
Melbourne was held in
Melbourne on November
Although this challenge
is in its early years, it is
fast becoming an annual
event and an important
fundraiser for Beyond
Described by organisers
as the "ultimate challenge"
this event is designed to
challenge competitors of
all ages and abilities.
It is a race against the
clock and consists of a
four kilometre course
around the Tan (Botani-
cal Gardens) with a series
of strength zones inter-
spersed with 400 metre
sprints. These zones re-
quire endurance strengths
of push-ups, sandbag car-
rying, hill sprints, hurdles,
burpees and pull-ups.
This is the second time
that 24 year old Jamie has
entered this event.
His motivation was to go
one better than his second
placement last year.
His fitness and prepara-
tion certainly paid off with
him crossing the line first
in the Advanced Male sec-
tion in an impressive time
of 19:25, and well ahead
of his nearest competitor.
It caps off a successful
past few months for Jamie
who was part of this year's
premiership Phillip Island
Reserves team in the Al-
berton Football League.
Going to the gym and
maintaining his fitness
has been a priority for Ja-
mie who had to overcome
bouts of injury throughout
the football season.
With this recent success
on the course, Jamie is
aiming to keeping work-
ing--out and to test his
strength once again in next
year's fitness challenge.
Proceeds from this Fit
event go towards pro-
grams conducted by Be-
yond Blue in its campaign
to help those suffering
from the mental health is-
sues of anxiety, depression

licensed for a day
THE preps at Cowes Primary had a great day on
Friday, driving around in cars they had designed and
Where to go when you've got your own wheels was
not a problem.
It was off to the "drive in" movies at the school,
where popcorn was served, and then out into the
playground for the car races.
The preps designed and created the cars they were
in with the help of their Grade 6 buddies.
Some useful road rules were also picked up by the
young drivers, on what was a fun prep day at school.
