A teenager discovered the benefits of rationing his time on a mobile phone at the NSW Junior Athletics Championships in Sydney over the weekend.

Sadheel Kumar was part of a great race on the final day, beating Lachlan Herbert and Ivan Balic in a hotly contested U18 200m.

And the reason for its improvement? Reducing his time on his cell phone.

“I get a lot more sleep,” said the 16-year-old from Liverpool.

“I don’t use the phone that much. I’ve been trying to stop using it so much.”

Kumar finished second behind Cody Hasler in his 100m race, Herbert won the U18 400m race.


Delta Amidzovski was another standout in the U18 division, breaking her own record in the

100m hurdles 76.2cm.

She improved on her old time of 13.45 with a sizzling 13.42 to beat the 13.67 standard for the Commonwealth Youth Games.

Izzy Louison-Roe also had an outstanding event with personal bests at all of her events.

The athlete from St. George won the U17 100m hurdles in 14.05, the long jump in 5.82m, the triple jump in 12.83m and the high jump in 1.82m – a qualifier for the Commonwealth Youth Games

Wollongong’s Chelsy Wayne left the field with a discus PB and a qualifier for the Commonwealth Youth Games with her 51.56m throw and a whopping 33cm improvement over her best.

Another standout was Mali Lovell, who produced a World Championship qualifier in the women’s under-20 Para Ambulant 200m.

In the U16 100m it was Oliver Facer who snatched the gold ahead of Xavier Perry and Wol Albino.

But in the 200m it was Perry who ran ahead of Albino and Joshua Smith with gold.

Billy Blair won the 110m hurdles in his U17 race but finished third in the 100m race won by Andrew Maenda.

Maenda then finished second to Dylan Hall in the 200-meter title race.

Grace Krause was back at her best, dominating the U17 sprint with wins in the 100m and 200m.

A multiple medalist at the U16 event was Tammin Lampret, who won the 100m and 200m doubles and also won gold medals in the 200m and 90m hurdles.

She also fielded PB in all but the 200m.

Jayden Tadoroski had a fantastic match in the sprint doubles and also had success in the long jump in the U14 race.

Tadoroski said his inspirations were schoolmate Rashid Kabba and the great Usain Bolt.

Rhema Adelaja won the U14 200m and Tahlia Tabone the 100m.

In one of the closest races of the meet, Maya Taber, 13, of Randwick Botany Club and Wenona School, won the 200m gold to complement her 100m success.

Pittwater High School student Lachlan Byrnes beat Jack Proudford and Cameron Badger for gold in the U15 200m.
