It would appear that Silvio Baggio only spent the one season with the Collingwood Harriers.

The 1974-75 Annual Report states that Silvio was a new member for that year and that he was recruited from the Collingwood Little Athletics Centre.

In the list of Club Championships Silvio is mentioned as gaining 2nd place in the 800mts with a time of 2:38.7, 2nd place in the 800mts walk – 4:21 and 3rd place in the shot put – 6.99m, all in the under 13 age group.

He was ‘discovered’ many years later (2014) managing a watch repairs booth at the Greensborough shopping complex.
