Richard Hankin won the Keilor Gift off 6.0m, only a couple of years ago. Is there a particular reason why he's on 11.00? Has he suffered an illness, major injury?

Gifted Hankin takes prized Keilor trophy to NSW

LANCE JENKINSON
The Weekly Review
| 13:00:PM 18/02/2013


THE coveted Keilor Gift trophy will spend another 12 months across state lines after interstate invader Richard Hankin stormed to victory in the Victorian Athletic League 120-metre foot race at Keilor Recreation Reserve on Saturday night.

The trophy took a trip to the Apple Isle last year after Tasmanian speedster Andrew Robinson claimed the spoils, but it will head in a different direction this time with Hankin lugging the major prize back to NSW.

It was a fairytale result for Hankin, who has lived with the fact his second place at the 2008 Stawell Gift was as close as he had ever come to winning a Gift in his career.

"He was elated," former Keilor Gift starter Matthew Webster told the Weekly. "It was his first Gift win in his running career.

"He came down here with expectations of making the final and certainly went home with a bonus."

Hankin, who ran off a handicap of six metres, won in a time of 12.67 seconds, ahead of veteran and former Keilor Gift winner Craig Mair and Melton South's Rhys Parkinson.

Mair, who ran off 13.75 metres, led most of the way and appeared to be coasting to the finish line.

But Hankin finished the stronger, winning by a slim margin.

"He [Mair] controlled the race up until the last 15 metres," Webster said.

"He thought he had it run and won.

"Unfortunately for him, Richard came home a lot stronger and beat him."

Parkinson had the best form of any runner in the field. The local entrant had dominated most of his events during the Christmas/New Year period and even took the honours in the 70-metre open race earlier in the day.

But he had to settle for third.

"Rhys won the Latrobe Gift and the Burnie 400 over in Tasmania and came back here to Victoria and won the Wangaratta Gift and won the Albury 400," Webster said. "He's had a stellar season."

The backmarker of the Gift was Bola Lawal, a former Olympian who ran off a handicap of 0.5 metres.

There was much interest surrounding the Nigerian, who returned to sprinting after a two-year ban for returning a positive test at the IAAF Melbourne Track Classic in 2010.

Lawal could not overcome the big handicap, failing to get out of his heat.

The 120-metre women's gift was taken out by teenage sensation Maddison Coates. An amateur state champion over the 400, Coates relished her six-metre handicap to win in a canter.

"She came in here with a luxury handicap," Webster said. "Knowing her form, she should never have been given six, but she took advantage of it and won by a country mile."

Coates, from Hurstbridge, won the final in 14.16 seconds from Lara Gambino (Parkdale) and Tara Domaschenz (Mount Clear).

Hankin only has to give Wearne 3m? WTF?

The Truth


Spot on bazzap, said in jest. In all seriousness, NSW really needs some new people involved who actually understand pro footrunning. The handicaps are consistently mystifying. As an interstater, it's simple not worth the time or money to travel there to compete.
