Tony Ganio

Tony GanioTony’s favoured sport during school years was running – as his eye to ball coordination was never that good so football and cricket were generally ignored. He sprinted in the summer and ran cross country in the winter up to county standard. On leaving school, he became involved in importing fresh produce – after a few years he started his own business and then in later years was trading director in a PLC. Initially Tony concentrated on his career and then returned to run marathons in my 30s. Tony says his running days are now over, and is now a keen cyclist and gym user.

Tony has been a member of Belgrave Harriers since 1991, and for the past 2 years has been their coaching secretary. He started coaching in 1990 and is a level 3 coach at middle distance, long jump and triple jump; he specialises in coaching horizontal jumps and spends time between Battersea track and David Weir Centre, Carshalton. Over the past couple of years he has been taking a lesser involvement in fresh produce and increasing activities in athletics. In fact seeing that there is a shortage of officials, he qualified as level 1 field judge.
