History – Indigenous Winners of the Stawell Gift
There is a long history of successful Aboriginal runners in the Stawell Gift (Australia’s most famous footrace) from Robert Kinnear, the first Aboriginal runner to win the Stawell Gift in 1883 through to champions like Tom Dancey, an Aboriginal stockman and boundary rider won Australia’s most famous footrace in 1910. Lynch Cooper, a Yorta Yorta man, was born in the early 1905 at Moira Lake near Tocumwal and was educated at Mulwala State School. Cooper was the first Aboriginal sprinter to win the World’s Sprint Championship. He won the Stawell Gift in 1928 and Josh Ross the two times winner of the gift in 2003 and 2005 (right).
In 2018 three Indigenous athletes from the Kimberley’s in Western Australia were provided the opportunity to travel from their communities from Broome (Alex McKenzie) and Derby (Solomon and Quarnie Peumorra) to participate in the prestigious professional athletic events, the Parkdale and Stawell Gifts.

WA athletes Evan Jarvis & Kiara Reddiugius have won the Men’s & Women’s Parkdale 120m Gift in Victoria.
Both athletes have shown incredible determination and resilience to bounce back and win these professional titles. Only one week out from the final & biggest professional event of the season the 2018 Stawell Gift.
In August (2017) the 2018 WCAL Male Sprinter of the Year – Jarvis narrowly missed out on achieving what no person has ever done before, that is to win a historical 3 x Mullewa 120m Gift titles. He fell an agonising 0.02sec short and finished the eventual runner up in the gift final. Then weeks later sensationally and agonisingly fell over during a dive to the finish line of a 4x400m relay during club v club duties and broke his collarbone one week before the 2017 Bay Sheffield. Courageously, Jarvis still supported his team mates and made the trip over to Adelaide only to witness Sasha Zhoya win the impossible 70/120 double. Reddingius has also suffered major disappointment recently when overlooked for 2018 Commonwealth Games selection in the women’s heptathlon after finishing runner up at this years National Championships on the Gold Coast. A bitter pill to swallow considering she beat home the third place athlete in the trials who was then chosen on the Australian Team. She is now warming into the hot favourite to win the Women’s Stawell 120m Gift final on Monday.
Evan & Kiara compete for the Curtin Athletics Club and will contest in the last major event of the season the Stawell Gift over the Easter long weekend. The Stawell Gift will be broadcast on Channel 7 from 11.30am – 2.30pm AEST on Easter Monday, April 2, 2018.
