Jovanovich in Skins three-peat

Ryde’s Brett Jovanovich made it a three-peat in the men’s open 60m Skins on Saturday at Homebush and lowered the colours of boom schoolboy sprinter Nick Hough (Hills) at the same time.

Jovanovich, 22, has now won the Skins for the past three years, first taking out the title at Bankstown in 2008 and repeating the effort in 2009 at the Homebush warm-up track.

In his first two victories he was the underdog and on Saturday it was no different with Hough, 17, who has dominated the men’s open sprints this season, the crowd favourite.

Jovanovich cruised through the first round finishing fourth but then asserted his authority in the final two races, with Hough and Illawarra Blue Stars flyer James Grimm finishing behind him in that order on both occasions.

Jovanovich’s progression was 7.18s, 6.95s, 6.85s.

It was a successful comeback from injury for Jovanovich. A troublesome glut had kept him off the scene for the second half of last season.

``I’ve had three months of injury-free training now so it’s all good,’’ Jovanovich said after his win.

Coach Carl Casaclang said they would now concentrate on improving the back end of Jovanovich’s 100m.

``We don’t want him to end up a 60m specialist,’’ he said.

The result of the women’s open 60m Skins was exactly the same as last year with UTS Norths’ Jess Knox completing the double with her training partner Larissa Pasternatsky (Sydney Uni) second and clubmate Briony Kanard third.

Like Jovanovich, Knox has become something of a Skins specialist having finished the closest of seconds behind Mingara’s Keatyn Windley at Bankstown in 2008.

For Knox, the NSW Open 100m champion, it was her first outing since finishing fifth in the national championship in Perth in April.

She has been off the scene with illness but showed no ill affects on Saturday, winning the final in 7.69s, running into a 2m headwind.

Her progression was 7.73s, 7.73s, 7.69s.

To cement their dominance of the meeting both Knox and Jovanovich came out later in the day and won their 100 yards races.

Knox won in 11.35s from Sutherland’s Laura Turner (11.70s).

Jovanovich won in 9.95s from Hough (10.04s).

James Gurr, the backbone of UTS Norths’ wins in the medley relay and 4x400m at State Relays, continued his good form by dominating the open men’s 400m in 47.66s.

``After a hellish week of training it was really pleasing to pop out a 47,’’ Gurr said.
