Grant Billingham again showed some great form on the track today running at the High Noon Meet in Canberra. After a wonderful trial last weekend it was time to do it officially from blocks and with electric timing.
Despite a huge stumble (see the video below) in his first few steps after the gun Grant crossed the line in a time of 48.21. Brendan Matthews showed that winter training is going well with a great time of 48.99 despite being in heavy winter training. Jesse Matthews and Luke Storta were also happy to jump in for a run to assist Grant.
Grant has now confirmed is place on the plane and will spend the next 2 weeks sharpening up before the World Junior camp in Brisbane from 25th-27th June.
I have also placed the 1500m race from today’s high noon meet featuring Todd and Brett. Todd ran a superb 3.48.71 and Brett was also under the required pre departure requirement (3.51.00) with time of 3.50.25. A great pacing by Philo Saunders made the job a bit easier for the boys.
