Additional information

RIO WITHDRAWAL
Selected for Rio 2016 Olympic Games and was set to be first Australian to run the Olympic 100m since 2004. But could not compete due to a hamstring injury. Qualifying time of 10.15 was the fifth fastest in Australian history. (smh.com.au, 22 Sep 2017; nswathletics.org.au, 7 Feb 2017)

Following Rio 2016, left coach Nancy ATTERTON (AUS) in Sydney to join Matt BECKENHAM (AUS) in Canberra. "I felt like I needed a change. I was training by myself in Sydney. Hopefully Matt takes me to the next level." Olympic sprinters Melissa BREEN (AUS) and Lauren WELLS (AUS) train with him. "I've learned a lot being around them." (smh.com.au, 22 Sep 2017)
