Rohan Browning joins the national youth sprint scene

Rohan Browning joins the national youth sprint scene

Over the last 12 months Australian under-18 100m sprinting has exploded. It started last summer when Jordan Shelley broke the national under-16 100m record, clocking 10.67 in Townsville. In August Queensland’s Trae William’s ran 10.51 in his heat at the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China, going on to win a bronze medal in the final . Jack Hale kick started the domestic season clocking an Australia under-18 record of 10.44 on September 24. Three weeks later Trinity Grammar’s Rohan Browning joined the party, running 10.62, while Shelley ran even faster, a personal best of 10.61. A week later Hale lowered the national record to 10.42. In late October in Brisbane, Williams opened his domestic season with 10.54, then two days later Browning clocked a stunning 10.37 (+2.4m/s). It is still over one month until they are all expected to meet in the first show down of the season, in Adelaide at the Australian All Schools.

We caught up with the newest member of the group, Rohan Browning, just after his 10.37 run on Saturday.
