Byron Bay student equals 19-year-old record

Nineteen years is a long time in anyone’s book, but that’s how long Todd Knaus has held the junior boys long jump record at Byron Bay Public School.

However, this year Harrison Kent decided to give it a go and while he didn’t break it, he managed to equal the long standing record of 3.76 metres at the athletics carnival.

 Todd and Harrison met for the first time last week to give each other a well deserved pat on the back.
Harrison also broke the 10-years boys 100m record with a time of 14.78 seconds.

Todd’s record in the 11-years boys long jump still stands at 4.17 metres.
