Young athletes star as stable sizzles

LAUNCESTON youngsters Darcy Leahy and Abbey De La Motte showed they had an exciting summer of athletics ahead of them when they were successful at yesterday's Burnie carnival.

The two 16-year-olds capped off a good day for the Fay Denholm stable when they won the men's and women's 400 metre handicaps at West Park.

Leahy, last year's state under-16 400m champion, beat home North-West runners Mark Brownrigg and Jorgan Englund.

In the women's event, De La Motte, last year's state under-20 champion over 400m, was too strong for Kimberley Bush, of Sorell, and Kristy Rootes, of Acacia Hills.

Earlier in the day the Denholm-trained Abbey Walters beat home a strong field to win the West Park women's gift over 100m.

The men's gift was won by Launceston's Ryan O'Halloran from Andrew Robinson and Edward Gates.

For 29-year-old O'Halloran, it was his ninth carnival victory.

Cooee sprinter Brendan Smart, who was aiming for his fourth win in the West Park Gift, had to be satisfied with fourth place in the final.

Doug Hammerlock, of Ulverstone, beat home Northern runners James Hansen and Jerome Whiteley in the 1600m, and the masters handicap (300m) went to Kristy Rootes ahead of her partner Mark Brownrigg.

Overnight rain caused the cycling program to be abandoned.

City of Burnie Cycling Club president Peter Ockerby said the carnival had been switched to an evening fixture on Wednesday, December 8.

"Unfortunately we had to make a decision early and it was called off at 10am," he said.
