Sprinter Jess Gulli sets sights on national titles
Geelong Advertiser
11 December 2010

GEELONG sprint star Jess Gulli is eyeing off a golden summer after a tough winter on the training track.

The 22-year-old has switched her focus from the 100m and 200m events and will target national titles over the 400m distance in both the sprint and hurdles.

Gulli, who has previously won an under-23 400m national title in 54.98 seconds when she had not even trained for that distance, said she expected to run fast times when the Athletics Australia Tour kicks off in February.

"I've had a really solid winter and trained right through, so hopefully I can go a lot faster," she said.

"In the past I've trained more for sprint work over the shorter distances, but over the winter it has been more specifically 400 metre training."

Gulli started off her summer campaign with a win over 200m in Melbourne last weekend, defeating Olympian Tamsyn Lewis, and will continue to race in state-based events in the lead-up to the tour and the national titles in Melbourne next April.

The Athletics Australia Tour begins in February and includes meets in Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. The national titles will be the farewell to Olympic Park in Melbourne in April.
