Joshua Ross wins St Albans Gift in style

By Lance Jenkinson
Brimbank Weekly
Jan. 22, 2013

BIG name sprinter Joshua Ross has taken out this year's St Albans Gift.

Ross, a two-time Stawell Gift winner, ran off scratch in the fifth edition of the Gift and was subjected to a further penalty, which moved all other runners forward two metres, after his win in the Bay Sheffield in December.

It mattered little as the 31-year-old, two-time Olympian and six-time Australian 100-metre champion chased down all competitors in the field to win the 120-metre Gift in emphatic fashion.

St Albans Sports Club general manager Des Barnard told the Weekly his jaw dropped when he saw the closing speed of Ross late in the semi-final and the final.

"When it came down to the last 30 metres of the race, you would think that he'd have no chance of victory being so far behind," Barnard said.

"Then you can just see the afterburners kick in.

"The form he's in at the moment is sensational."

Ross stuck to his word and ran a coaching clinic for the kids of the Brimbank Little Athletics Centre before the main event.
