TASMANIAN sprint sensation Jack Hale has won his second consecutive 100-metre title at the Australian All Schools Championships in Melbourne.
The Australian under-18 record holder clocked 10.62 seconds (w: +0.8) in the preliminary round and then returned for the final an hour later which he dominated with a quick start and a strong run to win comfortably in 10.58 (w: +0.1).
The silver medal was won by Anthony Gale (NSW, 10.76), with Callum McCarthy (Qld, 10.84) winning bronze.
The 2015 IAAF World Youth Championships semi-finalist was happy with his victory and winning time after finishing third in the long jump on Friday.
“I’m super happy with it coming out running 10.5 here, early season so I couldn’t be happier,” Hale said.
“The long jump last night was a good hit-out to come third in that – I’m not jumping amazing but to still come third I was happy with that.”
Hale said his main focus is on the next national championships as he chases selection for the 2016 World Junior Championships.
“I have done two qualifiers in the 100m and long jump now but I need to keep working hard over the next three months to try to get a win at nationals and automatic selection,” he said.
“I learnt a lot coming from the world championships this year and changed my program a lot coming into the new season so I think I can do better next year and hopefully push for a final.”
