Welsford Seeking Triple Treat standard

World champion West Australian cyclist Sam “The Wombat” Welsford is hell-bent on creating history at the upcoming Fulton Hogan Tasmanian Christmas Sports Carnivals. Welsford, 21, is aiming to become the first rider to win the iconic Burnie Wheelrace three times on-end, thereby joining track cycling legends Danny Clark and Stephen Pate as all-time greats of the 100-year-old race. The immortal Clark won three Burnie Wheelraces – in 1974-77-79 – and Pate five – in 1988-91-93-95-98, but the amiable Welsford points out that none of the victories were in succession. “Clarke and Pate were track cycling superstars and I would like to be up there alongside them with my own unique achievement at Burnie,” Welsford says. “It’s something I think about ...

HALE BACK IN THE FAST LANE standard

Australian sprinting superstar Jack Hale is returning for his fourth tilt at the Fulton Hogan Tasmanian Christmas Series this summer. The 19-year-old first experienced the thrill of the carnivals when he debuted at Burnie on new year’s day in 2015 as a then 16 year old who had leapt to fame. The man once dubbed the world’s fastest schoolboy, is now shaking off the schoolboy badge as he transitions into world class athlete mode. While his fellow Australian sprinting team mates were at the IAAF World Relays in the Bahamas and World Championships in London this year, Hale knew he needed a quality base of training to ensure he didn’t become another talented junior who never went on with it. ...

Naturally, the first thing people ask her is what she did with the money. “I have done nothing with it.  I still have every cent of the $40,000 from the gift.  But I did spend the $1000 I won from the 70m on a new iPad.  The gift prizemoney is in the bank earning a little bit of interest,” Ryan ...
