Olympic hopefuls come to Burramine

Victorian athletics trainer Nick Fiedler has brought many excellent runners to the Burramine Gift Carnival in the past but none as exciting as his current crop.

In particular, two of the women runners are outstanding athletes, according to Fielder.

“Katie Moore from Kilsyth and Alice Platten from Narre Warren have just finished competing in the Olympic Trials held earlier this month,” Fiedler said. “Moore will be competing in the Women’s Gift and I anticipate that not only will she make the finals but she has a good chance of winning it. She is consistently one of the top 10 female runners in the country and has made all the major Gift finals this season. Moore will be competing in the upcoming Victorian Championships in the 100m and 200m and is looking for a finals placing.”

Platten is a backmarker for the Women’s 400m.

“Platten is a two time winner of the Stawell 400m and is a favourite to take out the Burramine 400m,” Fiedler said.

For the Burramine Gift itself, Fiedler has three men who are in with a chance.

“Sam Jamieson, Carl Morehouse and Craig Foley are going to be hard to beat this year,” he said. “Both Foley and Morehouse are starting to come back into form, both have been finalists this season at other Gifts and both are looking to make the finals at Burramine. Jamieson won the Stawell Gift in 2008, he won the 70m sprint at Keilor this season and is also running into some great form.”

Fiedler praised the Burramine Gift, saying he looks forward to coming each year.

“I love the Burramine Gift and I come whenever I can,” he said. “It is definitely one of my favourite Gifts and my athletes feel the same. We all stay overnight; it is a great weekend away. The Gift is held in a beautiful, tranquil setting, the track is very good and it is a great community event.”
