In perfect conditions today John Winsbury ran the second fastest time in history for the 4.7 km Kosciusko Classic from the Snowy River bridge to the summit of Australia's highest mountain. He clocked 20.21, edging Rohan Lowry (20.23) into third spot, but Dave Osmond stays numero uno, the king, on 20.07. After the run, JW headed off for a 30k lap of the main range walk.

Ali Winsbury also had a good run in finishing 4th female.
