Anxious wait for Bay Sheff hopefuls

Handicaps for SA’s richest footrace the Bay Sheffield Gift will be released as soon as tomorrow and all eyes will be on the marks given to leading local contenders James Cibich, Tjimarri Sanderson-Milera and David Gross.

They were each fined $50 after last week’s Pre-Bay Sheffield carnival for “inconsistent” performances and the sanctions may lead them to be viewed less favourably by the race handicapper.

Sanderson-Milera, Cibich and Gross finished second, third and fifth in the final at the 120m Pre-Bay Gift on December 8 and were fined because their performances in the final were deemed poor in comparison to their heat and semi-final runs. In professional athletics, runners are required to give 100 per cent in every race and can face fines and suspensions for inconsistent performances.

“They were fined for inconsistent performances in the Pre-Bay Sheffield final,” SA Athletics League president Brendan Golden said. “They failed to produce the same form in the final as they had displayed earlier in the day.”

Sanderson-Milera ran off 7.5m at the Pre-Bay, Cibich went off 7m and Gross off 10.25m.

Most athletes are expected to get a lift (improved handicap) of 0.5m-1m for the Bay Sheffield on December 28 at Glenelg’s Colley Reserve.

But race handicappers have been historically cautious when handicapping athletes they deemed to have an inconsistent from line, meaning the fined trio may not receive a lift.

Cibich’s coach Frank McHugh said he was surprised at the athlete’s sanction and put the poor result at the Pre-Bay final down to a heavy schedule on the day.
