Additional information

MATURE ATHLETE
Returned to sprinting following a semi-professional soccer career to win the Stawell Gift in 2015 as a 28-year-old. Wanted to represent Australia at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, but suffered a serious hip injury in training. Regained fitness in 2017 to qualify for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games 4x400m relay team at the 2018 National Championships, where he won the 400m sprint. (murraygoodwin.com.au, 26 Mar 2018; pressreader.com 7 Apr 2015; goldcoastbulletin.com.au, 1 Mar 2018)


NO REGRETS
Started running again after seeing athlete Dylan GRANT (AUS) at the Beijing 2008 Olympics and Mitchell SWAIN win the Stawell Gift. "I saw some mates of mine who had gone on to do things. I felt I had shown enough potential to try and emulate some of their feats." (smh.com.au, 6 Apr 2016)


INFLUENTIAL FATHER
"He has been a massive inspiration over the last 12 months, confirming to me that this (winning the Stawell Gift) was possible." (smh.com.au, 6 Apr 2016)
