                  The Canberra Times had a (paywalled) half page article + photo, talking about Jack Hale's plans leading up to Paris OG. If so inclined, the text is easily viewable in the page source.

                  If anybody wants a precis, let me know.

                      Does he say anything about an injury because he was a DNS today..

                        The improvements of the top 4 seem unusual but then, I have no insight into their training/injury/development profiles.

                        Here's their race time, previous PB, (year of PB) and Improvement all sourced from the IAAF data. Note that Boyes had a seed time of 1:48.50, faster than his listed PB and McGown's seed time was his PB from last year, which he improved just last week by .4.

                        Lachlan Raper 1:46.45, 1:47.97 ('21) -1.52
                        Luke Boyes 1:46.69, 1:50.12 ('22) -3.43 seed 1:48.50
                        Riley McGown 1:47.19, 1:48.87 ('23) -1.68 seed 1:49.27 PB ('22)
                        Jamie Harrison 1:47.46, 1:48.34 ('22) -0.88​

                          Key elements of the longer story after blather mostly deleted:

                          Australian sprinter Jack Hale is gearing up for a "career-defining" stretch in his athletics career, and it all starts in Canberra this weekend.

                          Hale burst onto the track scene as a teen phenom. In 2014, footage of his 10.13-second 100-metre sprint in Adelaide went viral, instantly crowning him the next big thing in athletics. Now 10 years on, Hale hasn't quite reached the heights that was hoped, but he's adamant the best is yet to come, and the Athletics ACT Open Championships this weekend is where he's set to launch into his biggest jump yet.

                          I'm very much unfinished in every way, shape, and form. I think it's been good to now, but my career-defining moments are going to be over the next 18 months leading into the next Olympic Games in Paris. Up until now yes, I've run some good times but that's sort of meaningless unless you show some good shape going into the Olympic years and produce when it really matters. That's probably the thing has been missing.
                          Hale talks about the depth of Australian sprinting and the need to match Rohan Browning

                          Absolutely there's competitiveness, and that's amazing to see. I am the sixth-fastest Australian of all time. If I had run my times in most other eras, I would be winning these meets by two or three metres, week in and week out. But the fact that you have guys there that are running 10.00, 10.2 or 10.3, and it's such a big crop, it's amazing for us individually and for Australian athletics.
                          Wants to get down to 10 flat at least to have a chance in Paris and will keep training in Hobart with his support team.

                          Now going forward I want to see consistency, and to stay healthy.
                          He notes that making the final in Paris would be good not just for him, but for the sport as well, especially leading into the 2032 Games. Laying down an example for the next generation of sprinters.

                              Not blockbuster standard but some decent performances from youngsters. Most notable was sixteen year old Chelsy Wayne, who comfortably exceeded her All Schools PB of 47.63 in five rounds for a new best of 51.23! Results with PB and date in brackets

                              1 Ashlyn Blackstock 19, 51.64PB (50.13 24 Jan 2020)

                              2 Chelsyy Wayne 16, 51.23PB (47.63 9 Dec 2022)
                              49.27, 47.84, 50.05, 51.23, 42.03, 48.24

                              3 Sally Shokry 21, 49.27(4th best) (50.91PB 18 April 2022)​

                                Annie McGuire the 22 year old in 2nd hit her 2nd best jump ever in the first round with that 6.43. It's also just behind her PB of 6.49 +1.6 in December 2020. Some more consistent winds later in the season should get her in the 6.50-60 range. Today she faced winds of 0.0 to +3.3 across the competition but also from R4 to R5.
