AIBT would like to congratulate student-athlete Josh Harrison after his fantastic achievements at the Oceania Track Championships held in Cambridge New Zealand. 

The 22-year-old SASI athlete compete against some of the very best the region has to offer, and built upon his initial success to clinch three gold medals and two bronze medals.

Speaking upon his success Harrison was thrilled with his wins:

''The whole event went perfectly,'' he told SASI

''Before the competition, I would have been happy to maybe podium in a couple of events.

''But when I had success early on I had to stay focused and settle down and to not get too far ahead of myself.

''In the bunch racing pretty much everything went up for me. When I got a sniff at a possible win I just went hard for it.

''Leading up to the event I had a solid training base behind me which really helped.

''My SASI teammates were really helpful and looked out for me.

''I have been lucky to have had success in world cups and other events but this is right on the top of my highlights.''

Harrison won gold in the points, scratch and omnium events and grabbed bronze in the madison and team pursuit.

He returns to Australia to compete in a six-day track even at Thornbury, Melbourne from December 5 to 10.

In between juggling cycling, training, work and life in general Josh has also continued to achieve academically as he looks to complete his certificate IV in business with the institute.

We look forward to seeing his continued success both on and off the track.
