Gold Coast SUNS speedster Oskar Faulkhead has won the club’s first 2km time trial of the pre-season with a blistering run on day one of pre-season.
With the squad of first-to-fourth year players assembling at Somerset College, it was Faulkhead’s first time trial at the SUNS since joining the club in the 2022 mid-season draft.
Running a close second was fourth-year midfielder Noah Anderson, who ran a personal best time, with Jeremy Sharp finishing third.
Rounding out the top five were Elijah Hollands and James Tsitas.
Impressing with strong times were Sam Flanders, Alex Davies, Jack Lukosius and Matt Rowell who all finished top 10.
Ben King returned to the track, continuing his comeback from an ACL injury with a personal-best run, while Joel Jeffrey also ran after knee surgery last season.
Of the tall brigade, Caleb Graham and Jy Farrar also put in personal-best times.
Some older faces mixed in to the first training session of pre-season after the time trial, with Touk Miller, Jarrod Witts, Sam Collins, Lachie Weller and Brandon Ellis joining their younger teammates on the training field.
The full squad will resume their pre-Christmas block of training from December 5.
