Paul Edmiston - Head Coach making a difference

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]



Paul Edmiston was one of the toughest competitiors on the pro circuit during the 1990's and early 2000's. The Matt Barber trained athlete was an Australian 110m Hurdles silver medallist, WA record holder and multiple maajor gift finalist. He's now heavily involved in the North Beach Athletic Club in Perth, as its head coach and club president. It's always great to see someone who's been there & done that getting involved at the grass roots' & club level and developing athletes to a national level.

One of his charges is 21-year-old Cole Unasa, winner of the inaugural City of Perth Gift in November. (See story at the North Beach AC website -

His club is running its first Gift which is restricted to the local Little Athletics Club & Edmiston's senior club. It's initiatives like this that helps develop club camaraderie and no doubt we'll be hearing more of Paul Edmiston & the North Beach Athletic Club in years to come.

2011 Hamersley Gift
By Paul Edmiston
North Beach Athletic Club Website
January 10, 2011

The first annual ‘Hamersley Gift’ is on at Charles Riley Reserve, Saturday 29th of January at 10am. The race will celebrate the 40th birthdays of both Hamersley Little Athletics Centre and senior club North Beach Athletics and offers over $800 in prizemoney.

The race will invite the best runners from the City of Stirling area through Hamersley Little Athletics Centre and senior club members from North Beach Athletics. Using a handicapping system that gives all runners an even chance to win, both males & females compete in the same race. The race will be handicapped by WA Athletics.

This year’s race includes WA’s richest race winner 21yo Cole Unasa, in the 120m City of Perth Gift 2010. He will be put among some of the best young up and coming talent in Hamersley Little Athletics Centre and the City of Stirling to race for the first prize.

With the winner’s trophy and first prize of $400, this will kick start the career of one of our young athletes towards greater achievements in the future. All eight race finalists will receive a boost in income with prize money kindly donated by Whitfords Tavern and presented by Tony Krstasevic MLA.

It is the hope of Hamersley Little Athletics Centre & North Beach Athletics clubs to open the event next year to anyone in the City of Stirling area, and attract some local sponsors to support the event annually.
