Kara has her eyes on the prize



By JOSH CALLINAN
Maitland Mercury
25 Nov, 2011


Kara Bull has her eyes on a prize that raises the bar for female athletics in Australia.

There will be $16,000 on offer when the 24-year-old from East Maitland contests the richest female gift race in Australia at the Queanbeyan Gift carnival on Saturday.

This equals the amount of prize-money being handed out to the men at the NSW Athletics League event, with $10,000 going to each winner of the 120 metre handicap race.

This move exceeds the prize-money distribution at the 2011 Lithgow Flash Gift, which was won by Wallalong’s Kylie Newton, by $5000.

The mother-of-two picked up $7000 for her victory in February.

This weekend, Bull said she was looking forward to being involved in this historic event in the southern parts of NSW.

“I’m definitely excited about being part of it,” Bull said.

“It will be the richest female gift race in the country and it’s the first time a 120 metre race has been worth the same as the men in Australia.

“I’m hoping to run well.”

The primary school teacher won the 300m gift at Stroud last year and said she was endeavouring to qualify for Saturday’s final with her 15 metre handicap.

Also heading south for the weekend will be Thornton trio Tim Eschebach, Michael Eschebach and Phillip Ryder.

Liam Gander and Spencer Cox, from the stables of Gillieston Heights coach Tony Fairweather, will also compete at the carnival.

Gander will go head-to-head with Fairweather’s former charge Josh Ross.
