Our own Mel McAinsh is recognised for her Bay Sheffield win in 1992

Wednesday 17 November 2021

Melinda McAinsh won the Bay Sheffield footrace in 1992, and couldn't wipe the smile off her face today.Her name, among other female winners, now adorns a paver that has been installed on Bay Sheffield Walk, near the rotunda on Colley Reserve in Glenelg.

The female athletes’ names, who first ran in the race in 1987, now sit alongside all of the male Bay Sheffield winners from 1887.

Council funded the project to engrave the pavers with the female winners' names and they were installed today by senior civic field workers, Nathan and Kyal.
