A day in the life of Brandon Starc

10 January 2019

ATHLETICS: Olympic high jumper Brandon Starc had the best season of his career in 2018.

The 25-year-old won gold in front of a home crowd at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games with a jump of 2.32m.

In August, the Sydney-sider recorded a Personal Best of 2.36m at the Eberstadt Hochsprung event in Germany, equalling the 21-year-old Australian record in the process. 

One month later, Starc won the prestigious Diamond League final with a jump of 2.33m, earning himself an impressive $69,300 cheque.

Just before the end of the 2018, with his sights now firmly set on a second Games experience at Tokyo 2020, Starc took us behind the scenes of a typical training day in Sydney through his @AusOlympicTeam Instagram takeover.
