Special Guest at the Track

Former WIS Athletics and Cross Country champion Harry Loasby was back at WIS to visit and join in the Track Tuesday training session (a weekly session that is open to all at WIS).  It was another excellent opportunity for the WIS runners to learn from and observe an elite athlete.

Harry has made impressive strides with his running during his four years at University LSU in California, breaking HK records in the 1500m. Some of his other achievements include:

– Broke the HK National Record for 3000m twice, 8:41 and 8:40
– Broke the HK Junior National Record for 1500m twice, 3:58 and 3:57
– Set HK National Leads for 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 in 1500m and 5000m
Harry is about to embark on a 4 week training camp in Japan with the HK Team and a long range target for Harry is to represent HK in the marathon at the Olympics – go for it Harry – he’s one of our own!
