Additional information

ROLL OUT
Set for his first national title in 2009, did a forward roll over the finish line - earning disqualification for unsportsmanlike behaviour. "Some people might get upset about (the disqualification), but I did what I set out to do and wasn't too concerned whether they gave me a medal or not." (nzherald.co.nz, 8 Apr 2012)


NATIONAL RECORD
Took one minute, 34 seconds off the 16-year-old national 50km race walking record of Craig BARRETT, with 3:46.29 to place 12th at the London World Championships. (nzherald.co.nz, 14 Aug 2017)


COMMONWEALTH DEBUT
Set for his first appearance at a Commonwealth Games after two previous Olympic Games. (olympic.org.nz 15 Mar 2018)
