Who is looking forward to the high jump at the Sydney Track Classic on Saturday night? ⁣ ⁣ Both the men’s and women’s competitions are going to be great! In the men’s, last week we saw Brandon Starc jump 2.25m to win the Canberra Track Classic, the Olympic qualifier is 2.33m, can he reach that? ⁣Or will another in the field get the win? ⁣ In the women’s, both Eleanor Patterson and Nicola McDermott jumped Olympic qualifiers last week -1.96m, can they do that again? ⁣ ⁣ Come down to Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre to find out or watch on the livestream (early bird tickets available through the link in our bio ). ⁣ ⁣ #summersuperseries #thisisathletics
