Interview by Athletics NSW
In February this year Jeff Hunt, 27, made the type of break through athletes dream of. On debut in the marathon, he clocked 2:11.00. The performance was a NSW record, the 11th fastest in Australian history, the fastest by an Aussie on debut and the fastest by an Australian for seven years.
The performance guaranteed his selection for the Commonwealth Games. Hunt’s emergence sends a tremendous message to every athlete what can be possible. He was no junior star and it took many years as a senior to break through.
