    Intresting Facts
    Harry played soccer as a junior for Sydney Uni rep team and wanted to get fit for the off season. A friend who was doing athletics told him to join Sean Williams and train with his squad of runners in 2007. He met Sean and all his athletes in Centennial Park and started doing 2 sessions a week. He enjoyed this kind of training while playing soccer. Then he got couple of injuries in soccer and wasn't enjoying the sport so he decided to stop playing soccer altogether. Sean Williams gave him his first training program of running 60k a week (including 2 sessions with squad) for one year. He got him to join Randwick Botany Harriers club in 2008. That year Harry ran his first Australian cross country Championship and came 4th. Sean stepped up his mileage in 2009 to about 110k a week and Harry ran with squad for another 2 years injury free. He then ran Briggs 5k (Tasmania) in 2009 and came 5th with a PB of 14:15. Harry made his first Australian team in 2009, at 8k junior cross country trials, coming 3rd. At World cross country junior Championship in Jordan he came 29th overall (2nd Aussie). Two weaks later he got a stress fracture in his femur on the right leg and was injured for 6 weeks. He got back training and was very unfit but managed to get his training back on track during winter. He ran his first City to Surf in August and came 7th with a time of 42:35. In 2010 he had not been training that great and did some travelling with his family. In 2011 Sean stepped up his mileage to 125k a week with 3 quality sessions a week. That resulted in great City to Surf run where Harry came 4th with a time of 41:43. Five days later he ran australian cross country championships coming 4th. This was enough to make his 2nd Australian team, Ekiden road relays in Japan wher he ran the 2nd leg 10k with a pb of 28:59, that was a massive breakthrough for him.
