Ossie Naftel Rest In Peace

Filed under: Ossie Naftel, Uncategorized — sarnia @ 8:36 pm

ossie-naftel-1990The Sarnia Walking Club are sad to report the death of Honorary Life Member Ossie Naftel at the age of 80 years.

Ossie (pictured in 1990) was one of the founding members of the Sarnia Walking Club back in late 1964. He went on to serve as President for nine years.

He started in athletics in the mid 1950s and drifted into race walking in the early 1960s where he competed in the annual Church to Church road walk. His first Church walk in 1960 saw him cross the line in 4th place in 3.38.17, improving his time to 3.07.32 in 1965, again in 4th place.

He was also walking in Guernsey Island Amateur Athletics Clubs events prior to the walkers breaking away to form Sarnia WC. His personal best times were all set from 1965 to 1970. He broke the hour barrier for 7 miles with a time of 59.00 in 1967 and walked 10 miles in 86.00 the same year.

A swift personal best of 7.36 for a mile was at the lower end of the distance scale with a 5.36.28 for 50 kms at the other.

ossie-ctc-1963Competing 14 times in the Church walk and after his 1960s walks it was 1981 before he found himself back on the start line again. His 1981 walk of 3.18.38 setting a new Guernsey M45 age best time which still stands in 2017. He competed on and off over the next ten years with his 1991 walk his last one, finishing in 3.28.04 at the age of 54. Photo above in the early miles of the 1963 edition.

His last walks were in the mid to late 1990s when he occasionally competed, even putting in a winning performance in the Rocquaine Regatta Handicap race. Amongst his running career were over 30 half marathons and marathon races as well as the local traditional events.

Ossie was also President of the GIAAC for 5 years and served as Vice President and Secretary for the Guernsey Sports Council.

For many years Ossie and his wife Rose could be seen at most road and cross country runs with stop watches in their hands. Remembering his family at this sad time, he leaves wife Rosemary, son Roger and daughter Susan.

Personal best for race winner 

Donna Allan, who has improved rapidly since her first race last September, surpassed all expectations as she broke 30 minutes and removed a huge amount of time off her previous best of 34.14. Set off with Phil Lockwood on handicap, she soon moved ahead of him and started to make inroads on those set off in front of her. Hitting the front with still plenty of the race left she crossed the line in an actual time of 29.53. This time was a new age best time for Guernsey, beating that set by Jenny Elliott some years ago.

Second home, also with a performance better than expected was Peter Beckerleg in an actual time of 33.30. A close finish for third was won by Rob Elliott who had to find a sprint to overcome Phil Lockwood. Lockwoods glance behind leading him to try to hold off his rival with his own short lived final effort.

Second woman to finish was Jayne Le Noury, holding off Mick Le Sauvage for fifth place. 

Marie Macdonald had a good race overtaking Kay Coulson and Dave Dorey. After five races in the series and with two to go Donna Allan and Peter Beckerleg are in the first two positions but with a lot still to walk for.

1 Donna Allan (W40) 35.38 (watch time) / 5.45 (handicap) / 29.53
