Along with the 2012 Burnie mile and the Latrobe 400m, Burnie Gift winner Daniel Reeves also has two 400m Devonport Gift sashes from 2011 (when he also beat Eddie Gates) and 2015.

Reeves was 2nd in last year's Burnie Gift (11.25m) and went on to win the 800m at Stawell off 20m. It makes for a pretty decent CV.

Reeves joins Adam Coote and Mark Hipworth as winners of the Stawell 800m and Burnie Gift double.

Great to see the Burnie track looking in magnificent condition as usual. It would be great if all our tracks were prepared like that.



Reeves wins the 2018 Burnie Gift

victory in the Burnie Gift on Monday. Picture: Cordell Richardson

Daniel Reeves erased the pain of last year and cemented his transformation from a distance specialist to a sprinter with victory in Monday’s Burnie Gift.

The Burnie product finished ahead of Eddie Gates and Brandon Clark in a time of 12.65 after running off 10.5m in a win that meant the world to the 28-year-old, who already has such victorious as the 800m at Stawell and two 400m Devonport gifts.

“I came second here last year (behind Jorden Englund) and I’m usually more of a distance runner, but all the hard work has paid off,’’ he said.

“This is right up there. I mean Stawell was a real highlight last year, but to win your home gift after growing up watching the sprinters do it (is special).

“I was a distance runner and I didn’t think I’d ever really get a chance, but it just goes to show with a bit of hard work you can get there. This means a lot and I’ve probably achieved all I can in pro-running with Stawell last year and now this.”

Reeves is self-trained, but paid credit to his former coach Mike McKenna for his support.

The -1m handicap handed to sprint sensation Jack Hale proved too much of a hurdle for the 19-year-old, whose campaign ended at the semi-final stage. But he was still proud of the way he ran on the day, which included winning the Invitational 120m in 13.20 off scratch to go with his Latrobe Gift.

“I am honestly over the moon with how this has gone,’’ Hale said.

“To come out and run this well is just a really good confidence booster for me going forward.

“It is a real tough one to hear that you are off -1 and I would have been a good chance if I had my mark from Latrobe (0.5m), but coming into it was just about doing my absolute best and not thinking about it, as it is really good training going forward.

“To come here and make a semi and almost make a final, I am ecstatic.”



Hobart teenager Kiana Allen collects the biggest win of her career with the Burnie Gift

By Alex Fair

Kiana Allen  sure did enjoy her first trip to the Burnie Carnival after claiming the Burnie Gift on Monday in a breakthrough performance.

It was a result that she said was completely unexpected for the 18-year-old from Hobart after she beat home three-time champ Morgan Gaffney and Maddie Coates home, with the field also featuring another Australian representative in Ashleigh Whittaker. Coates and Whittaker both ran off scratch.

Allen had a handicap of eight metres, finishing the race in a time of 14.14.

“It is just amazing,’’ she said after a day of racing that was impacted by a headwind which was quite strong.

“It’s awesome and I’m really happy.

“This is one of the best wins I’ve had so far.

“I was aware of the head wind out and as this was my first carnival, I wasn’t really sure whether I would get into the final, and I just wanted to concentrate on running the best I could, and I would have been happy with that.”

Allen, who is trained by her boyfriend Brandon Clark (who finished third in the men’s gift), said it wasn’t until late in the race that she knew she had it.

“It was just before the finish line,’’ she said.

“I wasn’t sure whether they were behind me and I just kept pushing because they were right there.

“I was really nervous, but I was really excited to go out and try to run and my best.”



Stewart McSweyn's training partner Matthew Ramsden wins the Tasmanian Mile

By Alex Fair

1 January 2018

In the lead-up to the Burnie Mile, Stewart McSweyn said his training partner Matthew Ramsden would be a “superstar” of the Australian middle-distance running scene in a year or two.

The 20-year-old West Australian lived up to that hype when he beat home a field including McSweyn and Olympic duo Luke Mathews and Sam McEntee to take out the Tasmanian Mile at the Burnie Carnival.

Ramsden (30m) beat home Dylan Evans and scratchmen Mathews and McSweyn to collect the title in a time of 4:00.15.

Ramsden admitted the win was a nice confidence boost as he tries to find his way into the Australian team for April’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, but there was a something little extra in beating his good mate McSweyn.

McSweyn, who has already booked his ticket to the Gold Coast, had spoken about his desire to win in Burnie and continue his success in the city this year having won the Burnie Ten.

“I’ve been rooming with him, and he knew he had a big job ahead of him, as I was just going to hold him off,’’ Ramsden said.

“He is one of my best mates and I wasn’t very malicious, but I did want to get the win.  

“I just wanted to beat the backmarkers by about the same as what the handicap was and I just kept powering away. I knew that I was going to chill a little bit on the second lap so I could work hard on the third lap, that’s what my coach told me to do and I was able to pull it off.”
