Riseley compared to NZ runner Willis

26 August 2011


Athletics Australia high performance manager Eric Hollingsworth can see a lot of New Zealand star Nick Willis in Australia's best 1500m runner Jeff Riseley.

It's quite a compliment.

The 28-year-old Willis finished second in the 1500m at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, two years after claiming gold at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games.

In his former role as head of Athletics New Zealand, Hollingsworth got a good look at what made the 28-year-old Kiwi special in an event increasingly dominated by African runners.

Riseley is well-placed to become the first Australian since Simon Doyle in 1993 to qualify for the 1500m final at a world championships on the back of a successful European summer campaign.

He also qualified for the 800m in Daegu but has elected to focus solely on the longer event, where he has a PB of three minutes 32.93 seconds.

"I am very impressed with Jeff's preparation and the way he has been going about his business over the last 18 months or so, given he had a little bit of an injury," said Hollingsworth.

"There is an ability there in the last 300m that could put him in the mix, given that it is not going to be a fast pace, they are not going to be running 3:29 and that brings a few people in.

"He is talented, he's a big boy, a good runner, those are the things in the last 300m that I think mean he is (a chance to win a medal).

"Having worked in New Zealand and watched the progress of Nick Willis he is showing all the same signs that Nick showed when he picked up his medal in Beijing."

Hollingsworth also said that Australian shot putter Benn Harradine could be an outside medal chance in Daegu.

"We have got three or four who are in that category," said Hollingsworth.

"Benn Harradine would be up there.

"Anyone who is consistently in the top five around the Diamond League is going to be there or thereabouts in the championships.

"In discus, if you can get hold of it a little bit itcan go the extra couple of metres.

"That changes the landscape and he may be a medallist."

Great call, Hollingsworth. I can see why you're held in such high esteem in Australian athletics.

Perhaps I'm missing something but how come Gregson didn't qualify based on times? People with slower times qualified instead it seems.

Ok that's fine. Looking at the IAAF results page right now it has small q's next to a few names and his was not one of them.

All is well then. Thanks for the reply.

Hi Qualify?

Yeah, had to wait until all the heats were run before the small 'q' qualifiers could be confirmed. Gregson didn't have a small 'q' until after all the heats were run. He was in the first heat so he had a nervous wait.
Great to see him get through after he's been struggling in the Diamond League.

Will be interesting to hear what happened to Jeff Riseley. That 1500m heat run was way off what he had been running in the lead up events. He must be gutted at not making the semis.

i think you will find there was over an hour delay for Ryan to be officially given the small q - well after the third heat was finished (and runner from that heat were given small "q"s. semantics - he's through and well done!

Jeff, watched a video of his heat and just got out-kicked by 4th, 5th and 6th in the last 60m.

Jeff Riseley sent packing before finals after disappointing 1500m performance

AUSTRALIA'S horror run at the World Athletics Championships continued with highly regarded 1500m runner Jeff Riseley failing to get out of the qualifying round.

Riseley had been tipped as an outside medal chance by high performance manager Eric Hollingsworth but he floundered over the final 20m of his heat and finished seventh, missing automatic qualifying by one position.

But there was a positive performance for the Aussies in the 1500m heats with rising star Ryan Gregson sneaking through as one of the fastest qualifiers into Thursday's semi-finals.

It was impressive performance by Gregson - the national record holder - given he's struggled all season with a calf injury and then was the only member of the Australian team to be struck down by gastro in Daegu.

Gregson finished eighth in his heat but was the ninth fastest - the top six in each heat and the next six fastest advance - with 3min 40.01sec whereas Risley was trapped in a very slow heat, which left him vulnerable.

Unfortunately for the young Victorian, who was a semi-finalist in Berlin two years ago, he was found wanting in the sprint home and finished with a disappointing time of 3min 42.22sec
