Liam Adams: Man on a mission
Maribyrnong Weekly
01 Jun, 2011

VICTORIAN University cross country champion Liam Adams, pictured, has been named the Male Athlete of the Year at the 2010 Australian University Sports Awards - for the second time.

The 24-year-old students said he was shocked to win. He attended the recent award's night as a past winner because he won in 2008.

Adams is studying his final year of a Bachelor of Exercise Science at VU's Footscray Campus. He beat students from 42 universities to win the award.

"It was definitely a shock and I'm not sure I deserved it this year."

Adams believes his performances lately have been "sub-standard" because of a lingering chest infection.

He hopes to regain his form soon and is aiming at a spot on Australia's athletics team heading to the London Olympics next year.

While cross-country is not an Olympic sport, Adams is considering altering his training to compete in the 5000 or 10,000-metre event, or perhaps his first marathon if he makes the team.

"In this sport, your peak physical performance improves to a certain point with age and experience."

Last year, Adams, who competes for Athletics Essendon, won silver at the World University cross country championships in Canada and was the first Australian to finish the 12-kilometre open men's world cross country championships in Poland, his best performance to date.
