Herb al-Shaweera has gone from a young sprinter to a world champion, and now, as a result of his new brand, he has a new way to celebrate the feat.
Key points:He had his first big race win in his hometown of Newcastle in May 2017 and then went on to win the Australian Open in July 2017The 26-year-old has become a force in Australian weed sports and his success has led to him becoming a world-renowned sprinterThe Australian sprinter Herb Alpert rose from a boy to a sprinter and is now a global starIn his first major race in the world in 2017, Herb Al-Shawneeera took to the track at the Sydney Raceway with his father, a former Australian sprinner, and became the first sprinter ever to win an Australian Open Grand Prix.
“It was a bit surreal,” Al-shawneeeria said.
“I was watching on TV and I said to my dad, ‘Dad, you need to get out of the house, get out there and run the races.
I’m not going to be a sprinters.
I’ve got to have something else on my mind.'”
So I sat down at the end of the day and went and ran a 10km race.
It was the first time I’d done that race and it was a great feeling, because it was such a long race.
“My dad ran the 10km, I ran the 3km and he came back with me, and that was a huge moment.
It meant a lot to me, so I ran three kilometres back and said, ‘OK, you’re back.'”
In the 2017 Australian Open, Al-SHawneeerie won his first Grand Prix and won the title, becoming the first Australian sprinters to win a Grand Prix, beating out world-class sprinters like Mark Cavendish, Alexander Kristoff and Geraint Thomas.
He then followed that up by winning his first Australian Open Australian Championship in 2018 and won another title in 2019.
Al-shayeeeria also won the Australian Championships in 2018, becoming a household name in Australian sport and his achievements are being celebrated by Australian weed enthusiasts.
“He’s been a champion of Australia in the field, so there’s a lot of Australian cannabis fans,” Al Shayeeery said.
“There’s a really good support system in Australia.
There’s a great community of cannabis enthusiasts.
It’s just a really great support system.
They’re very happy with Herb and how he’s done, so they’re really happy with him.”
They’re happy that Herb is back in the sport and that he’s going to continue to do what he does, which is really exciting.
“For Herb to go from that, and also the fact that he has won the Grand Prix in the past, is a really big achievement.
It’s going really well.
It’ll be a big year for Herb.”
The man who has his sights set on a Grand Slam win is no stranger to winning Grand Prix titles.
Al Shayreeeria won a Grand Final in 2015, and has won four Australian Championships since then.
“This year, it’s the first Grand Slam to be won by Herb in Australia, and it’s really amazing, really humbling,” Alshayees father, Herb Shaweeria, said.
“He’s just had a really strong year.
He’s the number one sprinter in Australia and that’s a massive accomplishment.”
Al Shawneeery is currently on a world tour with the new brand Weed Alpert, which he has named after the herb, as he continues to compete at all Australian circuits.
“We want to make Herb Al Shawneeria’s story even bigger and to give people a better understanding of what Herb Alshawneerie is about,” Al shayeeerie said.
