1 A sashless Stawell carnival for Tassie on Tue Apr 10, 2012 12:33 pm



No sashes, so on to nationals

Hobart Mercury
April 10, 2012

WHILE Tasmanians didn't win any sashes at Stawell on the weekend, our athletes were in the thick of it at Central Park.

Burnie distance runner Doug Hamerlok scored two second placings in the backmarkers mile and the backmarkers 3200m.

Hamerlok has been a vast improver this season in the amateur ranks, after coming from a deep background in pro running.

He ran a quick 3min 58sec off his mark in the mile on Saturday before missing out on a Stawell sash by .29sec in the 3200m yesterday.

The women's gift semi-finals over 120m, which featured Hobart Athletic Club athletes Michelle Davis and Kimberley Bush, were shown during the live television broadcast from country Victoria yesterday.

Neither progressed to the gift final, but Davis did earn a place in the 800m final on Saturday, proving her significant range of events.

Attention now turns back to Lakeside Stadium in Melbourne for the running of the 90th Australian Athletics Championships.

A number of Tasmanian's will be in the running for national titles, medals, finals and personal bests in the last meet of the domestic season.

Field athletes Danni McConnell, Kaitlin Morgan and Mikayla Genge from the Tasmanian Institute of Sport will be medal chances.

Genge and McConnell will line up in the women's hammer, while Morgan will look to carry her strong form from the recent Australian Junior Athletics Championships into the women's high jump competition.

If her 1.86m clearance from 2011 were to be reproduced, a national open medal will be well within the reach of the 17 year old.

World junior 400m runner Abbey de la Motte will look to finish her remarkable season with a strong showing at the open nationals.

She was relegated to a silver medal at the Australian juniors last month after she fell sick on the eve of her final.

Joel Mason will line up in the men's high jump, in an effort to sail over the 2m mark once again.

Sprinters will be in the thick of it too.

Jarred Gilroy, Ross Lovell and Morgan Gaffney will all be competing in the 100m and 200m, and Gilroy will take on the 400m as well.

Distance runners James Hansen and Sam Ferguson will push their case for their first appearances in national finals, after displaying strong form in recent outings.
