BIOGRAPHY

Chris was very young when he started in the sport. He was a competitive and energetic kid, so his mum put him into little athletics. He started long jumping and loved it.

In his final years as a junior, he was winning national medals, had a best long jump of 7.45m and was sprinting very quick recording 100m time of 10.53 windy and 10.65 legal.

His first year as a senior, summer of 2016, was a breakthrough season for Chris. He made five improvements to his long jump PB, as he reached 7.75m for fifth place at the national championships.

The next summer, 2016/17, he just continued that form, 7.92m in November, then 7.97m in March 2017. The 7.97m series also included two slightly windy marks of 7.90m and 8.05m. Two weeks later he claimed the national title.

In August he made his international debut at the 2017 World University Games, placing a tremendous fourth in the long jump with a distance of 7.78m.

Chris is currently studying marketing at RMIT in Melbourne, and he is coached by one of Australia’s finest ever long jump coaches John Boas. He is a Carlton AFL supporter and admires Australian long jump record holder Mitch Watt. “One of the all-time greats, he could have given the world record a challenge had it not been for injuries,” said Chris. They never competed together as Mitch retired just before Chris entered senior competition.

The leading athlete during the summer, Mitrevski defended his national title with a PB 8.01m (8.09 windy) confirming automatic selection for the Australian team at Commonwealth Games.
