The feat was made more remarkable given the fact Doran had a terrible run of injuries in the 12 months preceding that run. Two lumbar stress fractures cruelled the Townsville sprinter’s 2017/18 domestic season and ruled him out of the 2018 Commonwealth Games trials and the Australian Junior National Championships.
Since then Jake has gone on to represent Australia on multiple other occasions and is now training to represent Australia at the 2022 World Athletics Track and Field Championships in Oregon and at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
I will be participating in the athletics at the NQ games? Particularly the 100m.
I was involved in the lead up to unfortunately cancelled last games, but this will be my first competition at the NQ games!
Townsville is a perfect location for high quality sporting events and the infrastructure setup in the city is world class. It means the world to me for events like this to attract top notch athletes.
For athletes in all sports just keep persevering! Im at the level I am at because I never gave up and I never stopped believing. My love of sport never waivers.
All the fantastic athletes that show up every day and work their hardest to get the best out of themselves. Ive been fortunate enough to meet lots of fantastic sports people and they all have their own inspiring stories.
Ive lived in Townsville for my entire sporting career.
Magnetic Island is a terrific holiday destination. Fantastic natural beauty and tons to do its the perfect spot to be year round!
I kept getting faster and faster and kept winning races all the way up to the national level all of a sudden, was definitely not planned!
At a high level for 5 years now.
To be the best athlete I can be and continue to get faster and faster.
Most of my closest friends are from sport and I continue to make new friends because we are like minded!
