Success for Sydney Olympic Park Athletes

Eleanor Patterson - New World Champion

20 Jul 2022

NSW athlete, Eleanor Patterson has been crowned the 2022 women’s high jump World Champion at the World Athletics Championships in Oregon (USA).

Eleanor cleared 2.02m to take the gold medal and become Australia's newest World Champion. She is just one of ten Australians to become a track and field World Champion.  Congratulations on this monumental achievement Eleanor.

It really is an honour to have athletes of Eleanor's calibre training day in & day out at Sydney Olympic Park. With the help of NSW Institute of Sport and our training venues, like the Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre, the legacy of Sydney 2000 lives on.
