Elite runners headed to Coast

The Advocate
Nov. 7, 2013


THE national men's 800-metre titleholder is among a host of elite athletes announced yesterday as confirmed starters for the summer carnivals series.

Victorian Alex Rowe, 21, reached the semi-finals of the 800m at the world championships in Moscow this year.

He is one of 21 top-flight athletes being brought to the Coast this summer by Victorian athletics figure Mark Hipworth.

Adam Coote, the third placegetter in the 2012 Stawell Gift, former Australian 800m champion Justin Rinaldi, and former Stawell 3200m winners David Spence and Michael Ryde have been confirmed.

AFL boundary umpires Ian Burrows and Michael Marantelli, who won the 1600m and 550m at Stawell, will also be competing.

The group of athletes join an impressive line-up for the carnivals, including four top-line Kenyan runners announced last month.

Hipworth, who won the Burnie Gift in 1986 and placed third in the Stawell Gift the previous year, has long been a supporter of the Christmas Carnivals series.

``They know they'll be competing against good opposition in front of good crowds,'' Hipworth said of his group of athletes.

Hipworth, who has won 60 professional races across a wide range of distances, will also compete in the veterans' races at the carnivals.

Sports Carnivals Association of Tasmania president Mike Gunson said the announcement was a coup.

``Throw in the four Africans who are also coming and we are in for an absolute treat of fiercely competitive and entertaining sport,'' he said.

The summer carnivals series begins in Latrobe on December 27 and heads to Launceston the following day.

Devonport hosts a two-day event on December 29 and 30, before a New Years Day meet in Burnie.
