1 1992 Burnie Gift won by Todd Ireland - VIDEO on Tue Jul 24, 2012 8:31 am


This is the final of the 1992 Burnie Gift won by Todd Ireland from Steve Brimacombe and Tim Potter. Shane Naylor was again in the final, running off scratch.


Great win by Todd Ireland in a super quick time (11.7)and Steve Brimacombe was super quick to get second place with the unlucky Tim Potter missing out for the second year in a row.
Does any one have copy of Steve Brimacombe winning the Bay Sheffield in 1991? I checked you tube and could not locate one.


2012 Burnie Gift

1st Todd Ireland (Vic) 4.00m - Blue
2nd Steve Brimacombe (Vic) 1.00m - White
3rd Tim Potter (Tas) 8.50m - Pink
4th Shane Hearn (WA) 5.75m - Green
5th Ean Vandenberg (Tas) 5.50m - Yellow
6th Shane Naylor (Vic) - Scr. - Red
Time: 11.74secs.

There were 100 athletes in the Burnie Gift that year.
Steve Brimacombe had been allocated 2.0m, however following his win in the Bay Sheffield a week earlier he was pulled back to 1.0m. Brimma ran about 11.85 off 1.0m.

At that time in his career, Todd Ireland would have been one of the fastest pro-runners in the country. That Burnie win was absolutely outstanding and off the back of the 1991 Bendigo Thousand win he had enjoyed an outstanding 12 months, winning two of the biggest races in the sport.

For a full review of the 1992 Burnie Gift see the following link.
