Gusman wins Fun Run for fourth straight year

MOTIVATED runner Jordan Gusman won his fourth straight 5.5km Coffs Blinds and Awnings Sawtell Fun Run on a humid New Year's morning with thoughts of the race legend in the back of his mind.

Jordan took four seconds off the 16:24 race record set in 2008 by 10-times winner, Geoff Bruce.

The run was an astonishing 36 seconds faster than Jordan ran last year and means he's now lowered winning times by 1:26 since that first race victory in 2012.

Tomorrow, the young runner heads to Canberra to join the Australian Institute of Sports but still has plans for this event.

"I will come back next year and as long as I can to try to break the record of 10 wins," he said.

Friend and rival Bryce Anderson was second across the line with Matt Berrington third.

Jess Dougherty was first female runner home in 13th position.
