Record-breaking ultramarathon runner Jacqui Bell takes aim at 161 km Queensland trail


For many people, becoming the youngest person to run an ultramarathon in all seven continents would be enough to earn a rest.

But Brisbane’s Jacqui Bell is training for her next big challenge — this time at home.

The 25-year-old runner and motivational speaker aims to set a new time record for the 161 kilometre Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.

As if that wasn’t ambitious enough — Ms Bell plans to do the race “unsupported”, which means there will be no fans supporting her along the way.

Everything Ms Bell needs to complete the mission she will have to carry herself.

“My original goal was 25 hours but I’ve knocked that down, I think I should complete it in under 20 now.”

The current record for a supported run is 19 hours and two minutes, according to Ms Bell.

The trail follows the old Brisbane Valley railway line, from Wulkuraka in Ipswich to Yarraman, north of Toowoomba.

The endurance runner attempted to complete the full course in August this year, but her body gave up after the 100-kilometer mark.

“I went into it run down and I guess through the night, running, my body just shut down on me and I ended up getting acute bronchitis,” she said.

But the experience didn’t leave her feeling defeated.

Instead, it motivated the world record holder to make another attempt early next year.

“I just absolutely love the sport and it’s weird — the more I do it, the more I love it and I honestly couldn’t think of anything more I enjoy than being out there on the weekend and running in the trails,” she said.

That’s lucky because she does a lot of it in preparation for each race.

Ms Bell described the mantra behind her training as “building up the kilometres in your legs”.

“An average week is probably 100 kilometres running and then that’s paired with a couple of 100 kilometres on the bike, plus gym, swimming and yoga,” she said.

Her work is clearly paying off.

While Ms Bell has plenty of experience with multi-staged events, which is how she broke her first record, she recently clocked her first Ultra 100 Mile race in 28 hours.

“People thought it would be easy for me after doing all the multi-staged stuff but they’re a totally different kind of ball park,” she said.

“They’re over the space of a week and you’re carrying all your stuff and it’s really spilt up.

Ms Bell ran her first ultramarathon at the age of 19 and by last November had completed endurance races on all seven continents.

In 2018 she became the youngest woman to complete the 4 Desert ultramarathon series. The multi-stage event requires competitors to run 250 kilometres unsupported through deserts in Namibia, Mongolia, Chile, and Antarctica.

When it comes to Ms Bell’s record-breaking ambitions, nothing surprises her dad Allan anymore.

“During the day she’ll train, then she might go swimming, then she might do cycling, whatever’s been programmed by her coach,” Mr Bell said.

“She can leave home here of a morning at 4:30am, and we won’t see her till 7:45pm at night.”

Mr Bell became emotional as he recalled his daughter’s long list of achievements and the difficult task that lies ahead.

“Whatever your children do, if they’re successful at what they’re trying to achieve, you’re very proud,” he said.

Donald Trump, Joe Biden travel to swing states on last day of campaign trail


At the nearby Rockefeller Centre, every single window on the ground floor of the sprawling complex was being boarded up on Monday afternoon. Not even the Lego store and the FAO Schwarz toy store were spared.

The windows across the road at Saks Fifth Avenue would usually draw shoppers to its Christmas display at this time of year, but instead they stood hidden behind a wall of wood.

A short walk up Fifth Avenue, and a line of dump trucks and buses had been arranged to form a barricade outside Trump Tower. Metal barricades have also been installed on footpaths on three blocks surrounding President Donald Trump’s former home.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio stressed on Monday that there were no “specific reports or specific threats at this point”.

“Everyone, of course, is concerned about the election results and what plays out after. But I want to emphasise, at this moment, we don’t see a specific challenge,” he said.

Still, the scope of the precautionary measures seemed to startle some New Yorkers.

“This is just sad. This is an election in America, and we’re doing this?” one man who stopped to watch the work said.

Fall for B.C.: Exploring the historic Gold Rush Trail


Fall can be a great time to explore all that B.C. has to offer.

In a six-part series, Global News is exploring our province and finding ways to safely enjoy activities.

This week we’re looking at the historic Gold Rush Trail, and we’ve highlighted some of the activities below.

Quesnel Heritage Corner:

While embarking on B.C.’s Historic Gold Rush Trail it would be hard not to find yourself in the city of Quesnel, as it sits right in the middle of the trail. Because it is at the confluence of the Quesnel and Fraser rivers, it played a major role in B.C.s gold rush as a central supply centre. You can learn about the history by going to Heritage Corner in downtown Quesnel. There, you will find information about the First Nations that called this place home, as well as relics from the past, like remnants of the SS Enterprise (the first sternwheeler to go up the Upper Fraser) and a replica of an old Cornish Water Wheel.

Story continues below advertisement

Barkerville Brewing Co:

A stone’s throw away from the Heritage Corner you will find the local watering hole, Barkerville Brewing Co. It is where the locals go to meet but it’s also a great place for visitors to make a stop to try some new beer and learn about the history of the area. The brewery itself is the first in the province to be all-female managed, pioneering some new space in a male-dominated industry. The beer itself tells the story of people and events that happened in the town of Barkerville, a mining town just over an hour away.

Barkerville Historic Town & Park:

The town of Barkerville is a 19th-century mining town that is known to be is filled with lots of lore and luster (from the gold in the area). Today the Barkerville Historic Town & Park is the largest living museum in western North America. During the fall (its off-season) you can still go on a self-guided tour of its massive property, see its over 125 heritage buildings and explore its surrounding majestic wilderness.

District of Wells:

Right next door to Barkerville is the District of Wells, a small and charming community originally built in the 1930s as a company town for the Fred Well Gold Quartz mine. Today it is notable for its vibrant artist community, colourful buildings, and recreational access to the foothills of the Cariboo Mountains. You can start your snowshoeing adventure from here, or you will want to walk down its main drag, Pooley St. and duck into some of the art galleries and shops. If you are lucky, you can catch a showing at the historic Sunset Theatre. Finally, end your day at the Wells Hotel Pub, where you can grab some delicious dinner then check out their astounding single malt scotch collection (Western Canada’s largest privately owned collection).

WA cyclist Craig Wiggins smashes record on gruelling 1,051km Munda Biddi trail ride


The record for finishing what could be WA’s toughest riding trail has been smashed — and the 21-year-old who beat it thinks he could go faster.

Craig Wiggins set a new record for completing the 1,051-kilometre Munda Biddi trail between Albany and Perth on Sunday, after riding day and night for two days across the trail’s varied gravel, bitumen, sand and mud.

The two-time Albany Sportsperson of the Year has built a reputation for success — competing in and winning international cycling events against world-class riders.

By reaching the trail’s terminus in Mundaring north of Perth on Sunday just two days, 17 hours and 22 minutes after he left Albany, Wiggins beat the previous record by nearly 23 hours.

Even for a rider with a resume as long as his, it was a mammoth effort.

“Obviously, I’m really shattered … it was a big couple of days on the bike,” he said.

The ride was more than just physically challenging. It was a mental push as well.”

On day one, after 22 hours on the saddle, he gave himself just two hours for rest.

The next stint would go longer — 29 hours without a break.

Audibly exhausted in an interview just hours after completing the record-breaking ride, Wiggins admitted it wasn’t an easy accomplishment.

“From Manjimup to Perth, 580-something kilometres,” he said.

“The last 200km I was absolutely creeping, I was not in a good headspace at all — but I knew every pedal I did was one less I’d have to do.”

The Munda Biddi trail, meaning “path through the forest” in Noongar Aboriginal language according to the Munda Biddi Trail foundation, cuts through a native corridor in WA’s South West and links Perth and Albany.

The Foundation, which confirmed the new record, said the trail would take most riders up to four weeks to complete.

Despite not having the chance to enjoy stops along the trail, Wiggins said he felt lucky to be able to be a test himself against it.

“It was pretty cool to know I haven’t ridden this trail before, so you get to see new places — albeit as a fair bit of a blur,” he said.

“But it’s pretty fun to just keep tapping away.”

Would he do it again?

Not for a while.

“I’ll have nightmares about it for a while,” he laughed.

But it seemed the ambitious young man will never say never.

“But I’d say I could probably go 4-5 hours quicker if I paced it better,” he said.

Trail rider with serious injuries rescued by chopper crew



A GROUP of trail bike riders activated an Emergency Distress Beacon in the Nymboida National Park near Newton Boyd today after one of their riders was injured.

Just before 5.30pm on Saturday the Westpac Rescue Helicopter was called into pick up the injured rider. It came from a request by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) to the activation of an Emergency Distress Beacon in the area west of Grafton.

Early details from the scene indicated it was activated by a party of four trail bike riders riding in the remote nation park in the vicinity of the Boyd River.

Using Digital Directional Finding Equipment on-board the Westpac Rescue Helicopter they were able to home into the location of the active beacon where the party of four trail bike riders were located.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter was able to land near to the riders where the Critical Care Medical Team assessed a 41 year old male that had fallen from his bike and had suffered serious leg injuries.

The man was stabilised by the Critical Care Medical Team before being flown direct to the Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.

Donald Trump mocks Obama’s return to campaign trail, noting he couldn’t help Hillary win in 2016


President Donald Trump mocked Barack Obama‘s return to the campaign trail on Tuesday by reviving an old claim – that his inauguration had a larger audience than the former president’s – and pointing out that he won in 2016 despite Obama’s campaigning for Hillary Clinton.

Trump fired back at Obama at a campaign rally in Gastonia, North Carolina, taking the stage about an hour after his predecessor delivered a blistering attack on his presidency during a campaign rally for Joe Biden in Philadelphia.

‘You know Obama’s now campaigning,’ he said. ‘Oh, here we go.’

He attacked Obama for not originally supporting Biden, which could have been a reference to reports Obama favored Clinton in 2016 or that Obama refused to endorse in the 2020 Democratic primary until there was a clear winner, which is a standard practice for former presidents. 

‘He refused to support Biden,’ Trump said, blasting the former president as ‘Barack Hussein Obama.’

He pointed out Obama campaigned multiple times for Clinton during the 2016 campaign – a contest Trump won.

‘There was nobody that campaigned harder for Crooked Hillary Clinton than Obama,’ Trump said. ‘He was all over the place.’

He told a mocking story about how Obama predicted Trump wouldn’t get the Republican nomination and then wouldn’t win the White House. 

‘The only one more unhappy than Crooked Hillary that night was Barack Hussein Obama,’ Trump said in reference to election night in 2016. 

The president also brought up one of his first arguments with Obama, saying the audience for his inauguration was even bigger and that the photo showing fewer people at his was actually taken after he was done speaking.

President Trump referred to the former president with his middle name in his attack, complaining when photos of the two events were shown side-by-side ‘they show empty space and they show Barack Hussein Obama’s.’

He argued his audience was bigger when ‘new things’ were included, believed to be a reference to online and streaming audiences.  

‘I said, I think the word we used was audience that included all of the new things, you know, all of the different things,’ he said, adding: ‘I think we had the largest audience anywhere in the world.’

He said the photos shown of his event were taken five or six hours after his inaugural address.  

‘They took the pictures about five or six hours,’ he said. ‘When I was speaking it was packed.’

However, time stamps on the photos showed by were taken at 12:01 pm on the respective inauguration days – the moment a president takes the oath of office. 

Obama, making his first in-person campaign appearance for Biden on Wednesday, delivered a ferocious attack on Trump, calling him ‘crazy,’ accusing him of lying every day, and tweeting conspiracy theories.

It was Obama’s strongest critique yet of his successor in the Oval Office. He blasted Trump for both his policies and his rhetoric. 

‘That’s not normal presidential behavior,’ Obama said.   

Trump didn’t just attack Obama, however. He also promised a ‘surprise’ for ’60 Minutes’ after he walked out of an interview with Lesley Stahl that taped at the White House on Tuesday. 

 ‘We have a little surprise for 60 Minutes,’ he told the cheering crowd. 

He didn’t give any hints but, on Tuesday evening, he threatened to post the entire interview online before CBS could air on Sunday night. 

Trump indicated one of the question that made him angry.  He said Stahl questioned him about comment he made at a rally earlier in October, when he asked suburban women, a critical voting bloc who he won in 2016 but is struggling to woo this year, to like him. 

‘She said, You are begging for women to love you. You said women Please love you,’ Trump claimed Stahl asked him.

At an October 14 rally in Pennsylvania, Trump said: ‘Suburban women, will you please like me? I saved your damn neighborhood.’

Trump vowed Tuesday that he would post portions of the program before its airtime on Sunday to show the ‘biased’ nature of Stahl’s interview, which the president abruptly ended after 45 minutes when faced with a tough line of questioning.

Instead of posting any clips Wednesday, the president shared several pictures, including one showing Stahl looking at a very large book of what Trump says are his accomplishments and work regarding healthcare since taking office.

Trump has made several stops in North Carolina – and daughter Ivanka was there Tuesday – as polls show him trailing Biden but just barely. The Democratic nominee leads by 2 points in the RealClearPolitics average of North Carolina polls, well within the margin of error.

North Carolina is a critical state in the election. Kamala Harris campaigned for Team Biden in the state earlier Wednesday.

‘I’ve been all over your state. You better let me win,’ Trump told his rally Wednesday night.

In his one hour and 20 minutes speech, Trump listed the enemies that Trump says he fights ‘all by myself.’ The litany includes the media, tech giants, ‘the really stupid dumb people — the never Trumpers,’ ‘the rhinos that’s Republican in name only -Rhino, I love that,’ and especially ‘the deep staters.’

Trump also blasted Biden, repeating several of his charges that are red meat to supporters: that Biden will close schools and churches will taking their guns and destroying the economy.

‘This election is a choice between a Trump super recovery, or a Biden steep, depression, and that’s what you’re going to have,’ he said. 

‘It’s between a Trump boom or a Biden lockdown,’ he added.

He again when after Biden’s son Hunter, bringing up the ‘laptop from hell’ as he called it. The laptop was found at a Wilmington repair shop and contained emails reportedly between Hunter Biden and Ukrainian officials and Chinese officials. Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, gave a copy of the hard drive to the New York Post and the laptop is reported to be in the FBI’s hands. 

‘Explosive emails from Hunter Biden also show that Hunter was negotiating with a Chinese are tied to the Communist China party to receive $10 million a year for introductions well that sounds reasonable I think you do that. I think I’d even do it,’ he said.

The crowd roared back ‘Lock him up, lock him up, lock him up.’

The ‘lock her up’ chant was one of Trump’s most popular in the 2016 campaign and was in reference to Hillary Clinton. Trump has brought in back in the past week to use it against the Bidens – both Joe and Hunter.  

‘This laptop is a disaster. How the hell do he ever let go of this sucker. He got to have it fixed I guess he forgot to pick it up. What the hell?’ Trump said.

He then referenced a report that there were intelligence concerns the laptop was actually planted by the Russians to influence the 2020 election.

Trump blasted Schiff for going on television to voice concern that Russia was behind the laptop. 

‘So Adam Schiff, this guy, the watermelon head,’ he said, going to say Schiff said ‘this was caused by Russia. Russia. Russia caused this, they created this.’

‘That guy should be locked up,’ Trump said of Schiff.

‘Lock him up, lock him up,’ the crowd shouted back.
