This year was shaping as a tough one for decision-making for young Ballarat athlete Harry Sharp.
Aussie rules or athletics?
He was always going to give football a big shot, but the national track champion was still planning to make a play at the big time in athletics.
It was certainly going to be a balancing act at some points.
The intervention of the COVID-19 shutdown changed all that for the 17-year-old. - effectively makiing the decision for him.
For so long there was nothing.
Now with athletics - cross country, road, and track and field - competitions still some way from getting back into full swing, football is now his primary focus.
Inititally he will continue his preparation with Caulfield Grammar in readiness for the Associated Public Schools season on July 25 and then turn his focus to Greater Western Rebels in the NAB League under-18s, where the East Point youngster hopes to promote his prospects for the national AFL draft.
Sharp said his athletics training programs had been instrumental in maintaining his fitness throughout the COVID-19 lockdown.
COVID-19 has made Harry Sharp's sporting choice much easier to make than it appeared early in the year.
FORMER steeplechaser Harry Sharp has set a new 2km time trial record at the Victorian NAB AFL Draft Combine on Saturday.
The Greater Western Victoria Rebels prospect underlined his athletic qualities with a brilliant run in the endurance test.
His time of 5 minutes 28 seconds smashed the record attained by Jay Rantall at last year's Draft Combine, when the now Collingwood midfielder ran 5:50 in the gruelling aerobic test.
