Facebook us on Award haul for athlete Storms stretch council budget FRASER WALKER-PEARCE Selwyn runner Rosa Flanagan has her sights set on next year’s world championships in London after taking out three awards at the regional athletics evening. Flanagan, 20, was awarded the junior athlete of the year, distance athlete of the year, and junior out-of-stadia athlete of the year at the Athletics Canterbury awards evening on Friday. She said the awards were a huge step for her development. “It was good, I was really very happy . . . I think I’m probably most proud of the junior athlete of the year award,” she said. The awards came after a “year of ups and downs” for Flanagan. In February, Rosa and her father Chris Flanagan made front page news after they caught an intruder in their garage. The alleged intruder, Luke Alexander Reich, has been charged with more than 40 burglaries across Selwyn. Mr Flanagan rugby tackled the man to the ground, and Rosa helped him hold the man down, while Rosa’s mother Juliet called the police. Rosa’s year was highlighted by competing at the senior world AWARDS FOR PROGRESS: Rosa Flanagan, 20, received three regional athletics awards for her progress in long-distance running this year. track and field championships as a junior competitor. She also broke steeplechase records, and set a national under 20 record in the 5000m race. However, she is now injured, and is in recovery for the next three weeks. She said this may stop her from qualifying for the Olympics. “I’m currently injured at the moment, and hope to get back running in about thee weeks . . . I was hoping to qualify for the Olympics this year, but (stuff) happens and now I can look forward to next year’s world champs,” she said. Flanagan’s coach, Maria Hassan, won coach of the year at the awards evening, which Flanagan said is a “deserved” reward. “I couldn’t be at the awards, but Maria picked up the awards for me . . . she got coach of the year, and she definitely deserves that. She has so many athletes on her hands – I don’t know exactly how many, but there are loads,” she said. The district council has nearly spent double their yearly budget on tree maintenance due to storms and growth in townships. Areas have been hit by strong winds and snow, leaving trees damaged and in need of cleaning up, adding to the cost of general maintenance. The full budget for tree maintenance is $57,000 a year but $104,000 has already been spent on trees in reserves and on council land. District council parks and reserves contracts manager Cameron Warr said the full budget would have been sufficient if not for the bad weather damaging the trees, growth in the area has also contributed to the rise in spending. Three townships have been identified as the main contributors to the over spending – Prebbleton $14,000, Lincoln $37,000, and West Melton $53,000. Mr Warr said the spending is higher in these areas due to growth and because there are more reserves in these areas. The district council also attribute the cost to contract rate negotiated being higher than originally expected and the amount and standard of maintenance being higher than anticipated in the long term plan.
