Flanagan comes back from injury for World University Games

MIDDLE DISTANCE runner

Rosa Flanagan has qualified

for the 5000m at the World

University Games in Taiwan in

August.

Flanagan, 21, achieved the

qualifying time for the games

at the Portland Track Festival

last week and is now the only

Canterbury athlete in the

13-strong New Zealand team.

Qualifying for the event has

been one of Flanagan’s major

goals this year after a bad run

of injuries.

Last year, she suffered a stress

fracture in her tibia, which

meant she had to resort to aqua

jogging, swimming, biking

and cross training while she

recovered.

She then suffered labral

tears in both her hips, which

resulted in her missing the

majority of the New Zealand

and Australian track seasons,

making it tough to qualify for

major events.

She has spent the last two

months in Santa Monica,

United States, training and

competing in a number of

1500m, 3000m steeplechase,

and 5000m track races.

She has previously won the

New Zealand 3000m and

3000m steeplechase titles and

represented New Zealand at

the world championships

in 2015. After the World

University Games she hopes to

represent New Zealand at the

2018 Commonwealth Games

and 2020 Olympic Games.

ADVICE FROM TOPAI-AVEAI

Last year’s UC Championship most

valuable player Cruz Topai-Aveai returned

to Shirley Boys’ High on Tuesday to pass

on words of wisdom to the school’s junior

rugby players. Topai-Aveai led Shirley

BHS to consecutive UC Championship

grand-final appearances in 2015 and

2016 before moving to Sydney to join the

South Sydney Rabbitohs. After a handful

of games for the South Sydney under-20

side he was offered a first grade contract

with the Cronulla Sharks. He will return

to Sydney later this week and is expected

to return from injury for the Sharks

under-20 side next month.

CBHS TO HOST NELSON

Christchurch Boys’ High School will host

Nelson College in a top of the table UC

Championship clash on Saturday. Both

Christchurch Boys’ and Nelson have just

one defeat to their name in this campaign.

The home side come into the game on

the back of a nail-biting 25-23 final

minute win over St Andrew’s College.

Christchurch Boys’ trailed St Andrew’s

by five points with just two minutes

remaining. Rico Syme was the hero,

coming off the bench to make his first XV

debut with 20min remaining and scoring

a breakaway try in the dying stages, before

Alex Harford’s kick sealed the win.
