News: Commonwealth Games Selection

Jeff has been selected to represent Australia in the marathon at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India.

Jeff gained selection in the team – his first Australian track and field team to a championship – following an impressive debut over the classic 42.195km distance at the Beppu-Oita Marathon in Japan in February. He impressed selectors and the distance running world, especially in ‘marathon mad’ Japan with his time of 2:11.00, surpassing the 1986 Commonwealth Games bronze medal-winning effort of national distance legend Steve Moneghetti as the fastest debut ever by an Australian.

At the time of Hunt’s record-setting run Moneghetti, now an Athletics Australia selector, said “to do that on debut shows that Jeff has a great future.”
