Australian 10,000m title up for grabs

TONIGHT is the night for Ballarat Olympian Collis Birmingham as he bids for a third Australian men's 10,000m title in the decorated Zatopek:10 at Lakeside Stadium.

A Commonwealth Games spot is up for grabs and Birmingham is one of the most credentialed competitors in the field to try and capture it.

Ballarat runners Nathan Hartigan and Duer Yoa are also in the chase.

ASHES fever is about to heat up again as we are one day away from the third Test in Perth.

But in Ballarat, cricket is pretty much all about the Melbourne Renegades.

We are one day away from the Renegades' Wipe Off 5 Ballarat Bush Bash camp and we continue to check in with players to make sure they are ready...

Also in cricket, Central Highlands girls have their final fixture in the Vic Spirit under-18 state championships today. A wash-out yesterday, before they had the chance to bat, should not slow the Highlanders' momentum - they had a double victory on day one.

Plus, it's teams night in the Ballarat Cricket Association for the final round's play leading into Christmas.

Are you ready? Let's go for another big day in sport.
