Dashing police officer John Howe in pursuit of Stawell Gift success

Hobart Mercury
22nd March 2016

John Howe, of Bellerive, is possibly Australia's fastest policeman. The Burnie Gift winner will be running at Stawell this weekend. Picture: KIM EISZELE

THERE is little chance any crims are able to outrun Johnny Law when John Howe is on the beat.

The 31-year-old from Bellerive could seriously lay claim to being the quickest police officer in Australia after a stellar season on the track and in the pro running ranks.

“I don’t know about any other police officers who have done what I have this season,” Howe said.

So far this season Howe has won the Burnie Gift, claimed the Tasmanian open 100m title and broke through the 11 sec barrier with a personal best of 10.94 sec.


“I’m really, really happy with how the season’s gone,” he said.

“I think I’ve mainly been able to keep myself injury free, which is good.”

Howe is hoping his run of success continues this weekend when he travels to Victoria to compete in the prestigious Stawell Gift.

His Burnie Gift efforts mean Howe will be running off 4.5m, which he reckons might be an obstacle too steep to overcome.

“I don’t think my handicap is that great and the people behind me are really good,” he said.

“I’m hoping for a semi-final spot, that would be great to get there.”

The Stawell Gift begins on Saturday with the final on Monday.
