Medals to Nicholas Hough (silver; 110m H), Jake Stein (silver; decathlon), Damien Birkinhead (bronze; shot put) and Steven Solomon (bronze; 400m) has the team recording it’s highest medal haul since 2000, and stacks up favourably against Australia’s historic success at the championships.
Despite being the seventh fastest qualified team for the final, the quartet of Ben Jaworski, Hugh Donovan, Nicholas Hough and Matthew Bertacco are only 0.33 seconds slower than the fastest qualifier thanks to their run of 39.34 seconds. The performance slashed close to three-tenths of a second of the previous national record set by David Baxter, Paul Di Bella, Paul Pearce and Peter Missingham in their bronze medal performance at the 1996 World Juniors in Sydney.
A full wrap of the championships will be published following its conclusion.
