Additional information

POTENTIAL
Been making strides physcially and technically, but most importantly, psychologically. Coach Marty CALDER (CAN) said: "Mentally, he (BALFOUR) feels he belongs now. To be honest, he's what is termed a 'next-gen' athlete." CALDER believes that while Balfour has a good chance to make it to Tokyo 2020 (Olympics), his performance path is more for 2024.
