One more metting for Gill this week

11:39 am on 20 December 2011

Jacko Gill's month of records isn't about to end just yet with another couple of marks on the mind of the 17 year old.

Last night Gill set a world youth record with the 5kg shot at the Millenium Institute on the North Shore.

His throw of 24.45 metres bettered his own previous World Best by 10 centimetres.

A fortnight ago he qualified for the London Olympics.

Sport Manager of Athletics New Zealand Brett Addison says he has more targets in his sights.... with a possible tilt at a junior world record on Thursday night.

This summer Gill will compete at the International meeting in Christchurch in February and the National Championships in Auckland in March.
