Sam set for sprint success

Flagstaff Hill runner Sam Osmond has been training hard for
the Messenger Junior Bay Sheffield.

FLAGSTAFF Hill teen Sam Osmond began his running career at the local Little Athletics club as a five-year-old.

Now 17, Sam will compete against some of the state’s best up-and-coming sprinters this month at the Messenger Junior Bay Sheffield.

The new under-18 race, sponsored by Messenger Community News, was announced in October and will be held for the first time at this year’s Bay Sheffield carnival in the lead-up to the main race.

Sam, who runs for Grange Beachies and plays football for Flagstaff Hill, says the Bay Sheffield stands out as the major athletics event on his calendar.

“It’s (an event) that you look forward to and hope that you’re not injured for at that time of the year,” Sam says.

He started training with the Grange Beachies in 2009 because a neighbour needed an extra runner for a relay race.

“I used to be next-door neighbours with a girl called Sarah and (Grange Beachies) needed me for a relay,” Sam says.

“I enjoyed it so I kept going back.”

Sam ran in the under-21 race last year and placed fourth, and is excited about competing in the new event. “Once I realised it was an under-18 event and I was eligible I was excited about it,” he says.

Training is a big part of the lead-up to the carnival and Sam says he has been preparing since September.

“This year I started training as soon as footy finished.

“We train three nights a week and the training isn’t easy,” he says.

The two-day Bay Sheffield Carnival will be held at Colley Reserve, Glenelg, on December 27 and 28.
