BIOGRAPHY

A very talented teen, Jack burst onto the athletics scene at 16, clocking 10.44 in the 100m in September 2014. It was no fluke as the next month he ran 10.42, and in December a wind-assisted 10.13. Two weeks after his breakthrough 100m, he long jumped 7.66m. He did continue to long jump, but the sprinting took over and in 2016 he lowered Matt Shirvington’s Australian under-20 record to 10.21.

In 2015 he had made his international debut at the IAAF World Youth U18 Championships progressing to the semi-final in both events. He competed at the 2016 IAAF World Juniors and again made the 100m semi-final. He also helped the Australian 4x100m relay team to fifth place. At the nationals earlier in the year he had placed second in the Australian open 100m.

In good form in the 2017/18 domestic season he ran a barely wind assisted 2.1m/s, 10.10 in Perth in January. At the Australian Championships and Commonwealth Games trials, he won his heat and semi-final, but in the final pulled up injured, eventually placing eighth. Jack was named in the Australian team in the relay for the Games.
