STORY: ORANGE'S MOST ELIGIBLE SPORTSMEN - PART I

GUS TOBIN

Age: 21

Sport: Cycling

Who is your biggest sporting man crush and why?

Probably my Search2retain teammate Cal Britten. He has these long golden locks that could almost convince you he was a girl from the right angle!

What is the best sporting event to take a girl on a date to?

Sumo wrestling. I could never look too bad standing beside a sumo wrestler.

What is your signature sporting move?

Typically being unfindable in the peleton until the last 200 metres. Sprinters can be very lazy.

Who would you nominate for the Most Eligible Sportsman and why?

My teammate Ollie Kent-Spark. The man needs a girlfriend.

What should a girl yell out to you to show her support at a sporting event?

To be honest they could yell anything. I can never usually hear anyone from where I’m hiding in the peleton.

If you could be any sportswoman for a day, who would you be?

Maria Sharapova. Among other things, it would be interesting to see if her howl is fake ... and to have that much money for a day.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

I’ve always had a thing about flying.

What is your most embarrassing sporting moment?

I binned it in a track sprint in America and landed on my front, which tore my skin suit. I got carted off in a very revealing state in front of a full house. Luckily there was no other damage.

What’s your best pick-up line?

I’m not sure I have anything appropriate enough to write.

What is your best sporting achievement?

Wining the under 13s state championship was pretty big. I just took my first international win in China last November, which would have to come a close second.

What are your interests away from sport?

Flying’s the big one. I work as a flying instructor when I’m not racing. I play a bit of guitar and I just bought a motorbike.

The soccer ... said no one ever!

What is your signature sporting move?

Warming the bench.

Who would you nominate for the Most Eligible Sportsman and why?

What should a girl yell out to you to show her support at a sporting event?

To show her support she would yell nothing.

Torah Bright (Australian snowboarder).

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Superior intelligence.

What is your most embarrassing sporting moment?

None, I’m that good.

I’m kind of a big deal. My apartment smells of rich mahogany.

Winning the Central West AFL grand final last year.

More sport and a few beers from time to time.
