U15 Men 100m sprint
Andres had a great run in the heat to set a new PB of 11.81 but failed to finish strongly and was out-dipped on the line to come 5th in his heat and miss a spot in the final by 0.02 seconds.
|Heat||11.81 (+0.1); PB||9th place overall|
U15 Men 100m hurdles (84cm)
In Andres’s 3rd ever 100m hurdles race, he set a good (wind legal) PB and came 2nd in his heat; qualifying 5th fastest for the final. He was not able to improve his run in the final and finshed 5th overall.
|Heat||14.61 (+0.8); PB||5th fastest qualifier|
|Final||14.86 (-1.1)||5th place|
U15 Men 200m sprint
After developing tendonitis in his foot, Andres decided to withdraw from the 200m sprint event.
U15 Men 200m hurdles (76cm x 10)
Andres finished strongly to win his heat and qualified 4th fastest for the final. In a dramatic turn of events, he was disqualified for his trailing leg falling below the plane of the hurdle (2nd hurdle). The NSW team management assisted us in lodging an appeal and I was able to use my video camera footage to demonstrate to the head official that there was no infringement and Andres was reinstated to the final. Unfortunately, his tendonitis flared up again while warming up for the final and he was forced to pull out.
|Heat||28.38||4th fastest qualifier|
