January Sportstar 2019 nominee

By Riverine Herald

Congratulations to runner Archie Reid who is the 2019 Sportstar of the Year January nominee.

It’s been a dominant start to 2019 for young Echuca runner Archie Reid.

And he has started off by taking on his own shadow.

Reid participated in the Vic Country Championships at the Latrobe University Bendigo Athletics Centre, running in the 5000m in the under 20 category.

Reid destroyed all 18 competitors on the track, including those in the open category, completing the race in 15:10, beating all his competitors by a minimum of 19 seconds.

More impressively, Reid took 26 seconds off his own center record time for the event.

Reid is currently in Kenya for high altitude training to further improve on his skill as he looks to more racing this year.
