Sam is being very humble here, for those of you who do not know, the NZ Cross country championships is one of the most prestigious and fiercely contested races on the Athletics NZ calendar. This is a great achievement and one which was very well deserved.
Goals: Sam prefers to keep his cards close to his chest in this regard however we have heard whispers of a potential 2018 Commonwealth games target. The event is set to be hosted on the Gold Coast and would require a blistering time of 2:12 for the marathon to qualify!
