Faulconbridge's Joel Milburn training hard for 2012 London Olympics

Penrith Press
28 Jul 2011

ATHLETE Joel Milburn is hoping an intense training regime is the key to success at the 2012 London Olympics.

At an event to mark the one- year countdown at Customs House, Circular Quay, on Wednesday, Milburn, 25, of Faulconbridge, told the Press he was eager for success at his second Olympic Games.

“For the public one year seems like a long time but for an athlete you’re already hard at work and it’s a lot closer than you really think,” he said.

“Our trials for track and field are in February, so the process has already begun.

“I’ve been training six days a week and am preparing to be at my peak by January to February.

“I competed in Beijing (in 2008) in the 400m individual and the relay events and actually I just missed out on the final in the individual.

“Basically I’ll focus on myself first, but the relay is one of the strongest things in Australian sprinting, so I’ll be looking forward to be competing in the 4x400m relay as well.”

Milburn started his athletics career at Glenbrook Little Athletics Club at age six.

The sprinter says anyone can reach the heights of sport if they put their mind to it.

“I was just a boy who grew up in the western suburbs and now I’m on my way to the Olympics and it’s just proof that anyone can do it,” he said.

“So if there are any kids in Penrith or the Blue Mountains that have dreams to make it to this level, they can do it - they just have to start focusing.”


Haven't seen Milburn all summer? Anyone know how's he going?
