Hale Advances After 100m Heat Win

Leading Australian junior sprinter Jack Hale (TAS) has progressed to the semi-finals of the boy’s 100m after winning heat one in a time of 10.48 (w: -0.4) on the opening day of competition at Bydgoszcz 2016.

“That felt comfortable, coming away with the win in the opening round… nothing more you can ask for,” Hale said.

While conditions have been mixed on day one, things cleared up for Hale in the opening heat.

“There was very little wind if any and it was all good, conditions are fine, it’s a quick track, so as the rounds progress there is no reason I can’t run faster.”

Teammate Trae Williams (QLD) failed to progress to the semi-finals after finishing sixth with a time of 10.70 (w: +0.6) in heat five.
