Jacob Despard desparately close to Devonport-Burnie gift double
JANUARY 02, 2015

HOBART’S Jacob Despard missed out on taking out back-to-back gift wins by the narrowest of margins in Burnie last night.

Despard took out the Devonport Gift on Tuesday night.
Last night, he lost by just one hundredth of a second in a nail-biting photo finish in the Burnie Gift.

Melbourne runner Simon Fitzpatrick said taking out his first Burnie Gift was the highlight of his athletic career.

“I thought I had a chance but was worried about Despard,” he said.

“I have had some success at Stawell but it was all about the gift tonight.”

Kimberley Geelan, of Hobart, left, wins the Women's Gift.

Kimberley Geelan, of Hobart, took out the women’s gift and stopped Morgan Gaffney from creating history by being the first woman to win three Burnie Gift races.

“I can’t believe I finally pulled it off,” she said after her third start in a Burnie Gift final.

“I ran terribly at Latrobe but managed to pull it together today.”
