Games runner eager to hit the track
The Advocate
29 Dec, 2010

AUSTRALIAN 100m champion Melissa Breen will use this week's Devonport Carnival as the springboard to start her 2011 season.

Breen, from Canberra, has not raced competitively since returning from the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, in which she was eliminated in a semi-final.

"I had a week off after Dehli and it's been pretty much just training since then," the 20-year-old sprinter said yesterday.

Breen will run in the 70m sprint tonight and the 200m tomorrow night in what she hopes will be a perfect lead- up to Saturday's 120m Burnie Gift.

"Burnie is more my distance, but Devonport will provide a good hit-out - I'm really looking forward to Burnie," Breen said.

Although she won the 2007 Queenbeayan Gift and the Lithgow Flash Gift, both in NSW, Breen hasn't done a lot of professional handicap running.

"I like it though," she said.

"There's less pressure than at the elite amateur level and I can enjoy myself a bit more.

"The handicapping doesn't worry me because it's always a great challenge to try and run the other girls down."

After the Basslink Christmas Carnivals Series, Breen will head to Queensland to run her first 100m of the season at the Brisbane Grand Prix.

"The Tasmanian carnivals series is a great way for me to refresh myself and prepare for the season ahead," Breen said.

"Let's Go While We're Young"
