Former Gift winner a threat in titles

Burnie Advocate
March 2, 2016,

BURNIE Gift winner John Howe has been tipped as a big threat on the running track at the weekend.

Howe, formerly of Penguin, has been in outstanding form this season and will line up as one of the favourites in the 100m at the 2016 Tasmanian Open and Masters Championships in Launceston.

University of Tasmania Athletics Club's Tracy Canham said Howe, along with Launceston's Ross Lovell, would be a good chance due to the absence of Jack Hale.

"Ross Lovell is second only to Jack Hale in the 2016 rankings with an impressive 10.86 from his recent run in Brisbane," she said.

"With the absence of Jack Hale, Lovell's biggest threats in both the 100m and 200m events are from former North-West athlete John Howe.

"Howe will start in the 100m event with an 11.00 time next to his name for the 2016 year."

Forth runner Deon Kenzie and Ulverstone's Douglas Hamerlok will also feature from the Coast, with high expectations in the 1500m event.

"Kenzie recently improved his own IPC T38 WR to an impressive 4:04.85 last weekend," Canham said.

"Hamerlok enters the event as the favourite on the back of his 3:45.79 run at the Briggs Athletics Classic, with Jordan Tyler expected to join him on the podium."

In the women's field, Somerset's Morgan Gaffney, Ulverstone's Abby Chapman and Burnie's Eve Bell will all represent the Coast.

King Island's Stewart McSweyn will also compete in Melbourne at the weekend, after setting an all-time Tasmanian best performance at the Briggs Athletics Classic, running 13:45.79 for the 5000m event.

McSweyn will compete at the IAAF Melbourne World Challenge on Saturday night, possibly the toughest meet in the country to be accepted into because of limited places for Australian athletes.
