STEVE Moneghetti hailed a potential Australian marathon star after Jeff Hunt claimed third place in the Beppu Oita marathon in Japan yesterday.
The 27-year-old New South Welshman, a former national cross-country champion, was contesting his first marathon and clocked a highly impressive two hours 11 minutes.
”It’s fantastic. It goes to show that we are on the way back,” said Moneghetti, an Australian selector.
