BREAKING: Warwick athlete claims silver at nationals
JUSTYN Rogers has walked away from the Pacific School Games in Adelaide with a silver medal after the jump of his life today.
Rogers previous personal best coming into the final was 6.93m, however he smashed that mark with a huge leap of 7.32m.
Rogers' long jump coach Rebecca Rogers said the result was well deserved.
"We're all super proud,” she said.
"Justyn has worked super hard for the last nine months, and hasn't missed a session for the training program we have set him,
"He is the most dedicated athlete we have had by far.
"It is a tremendous reward for his effort. We think there is more in the tank and he'll keep on training.”
