Big names present for gift

AN Olympic silver medallist, a Stawell Gift winner and an AFL great will be the star attractions for the first annual Woodside Gift tomorrow.

A big crowd is expected at the Woodside Recreation Reserve as the Gippsland's answer to the 132-year-old Stawell Gift.

The Woodside Gifts for men and women will be run over 120 metres with competitors given handicaps with the slower ones to start in front.

Adrian Mott, who won the Stawell Gift in 2006, will run in the men's race, as well Olympic silver medallist and Commonwealth champion hurdler Sarah* Pearson, who will also run in the women's gift.

Dual AFL Brownlow Medallist Robert Harvey will run against locals in a special race.

Organiser Clint Hillas was thrilled by the response to the event from around the region and from competitors with around 490 entries received for the day.

* Sarah?? How could he not even get the biggest drawcard of the meet, Sally Pearson's name right!
