Grant Billingham has commenced his World Junior trip with a victory in a warm up meet in Vancouver. Running in the B race Grant was too strong for the rest of the field crossing the line in a time of 48.81.
“It felt great and I think I have some more in the bank too” Grant explained.
The following day Grant ran in the Australian relay team which also took out victory in a solid time of 3.10. Running with Steve Solomon (46.8), John Rayner (47.6) and Joel Bee (48.6) Grant ran a great third leg with a split of 48.0.
Grant will now settle in and get fully adjusted to the time zone change before heading to Moncton for the World Junior Championships where he will run for Australia in the 4 x 400m relay.
