Women from Tasocs United ” including Scarborough’s Jan Metzger and Woodlands resident Laurine Baggott ” will join the 8800 competitors who will converge on Geelong for the Australian Masters Games.

One of the country’s largest multi-sporting events, the Games include everything from athletics, cycling and golf to ultimate frisbee for those over 30.

Baggott, who is coaching the team to deliver military-style precision, said the big numbers would not intimidate them, with the group gunning for top spot.

‘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 be the best I can.’
