The women from Tasocs United, including Yanchep resident Marilyn Day, will make up a tiny portion of the 8800 competitors that will converge on Geelong for the Australian Masters Games.

The games are one of Australia’s largest multi sporting events, with everything from athletics, cycling, golf and ultimate frisbee on offer to anyone over 30.

But team coach Laurine Baggott, whose team will be aiming for military-style precision, said the big numbers would not intimidate her team.

‘I always aim to win,’ she said.

‘Some people say the Masters Games shouldn’t be competitive and that it should just be about fun, but I don’t believe in that.

‘I’m always aiming to the best I can.’
