TGS Athlete on Track for Olympics14th February 2020
Toowoomba Grammar School athlete, Jai Gordon is on track for the Olympics.
The Year 12 student lined up against Australia’s top 100m runners as they each tried to reach an Australian qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games last Thursday, 13 February.
Jai had the privilege of competing against Olympians and Australian representatives, including Jack Hale, Alex Hartman, Jake Doran and Rohan Browning.
He hopes to use the experience to run a PB and get closer to the Australian Under 20 World Junior qualification standard.
The trial was part of a week’s stint in Canberra at the Australian U20 relay squad training camp.
It capped off a huge week for the 17 year old, who was also named Darling Downs Sports 2019 Junior Rising Star of the Year on the Saturday prior to flying out for the camp.
