Hawkesbury athlete Blake Pasfield is currently in his first year of the Academy Lone Star program and has a long list of athletics achievements!
Some of Blake’s more recent achievements include qualifying for the NSW State Little Athletics Championships in the 100m Sprint, 200m Sprint and 100m Hurdles and the NSW Junior Championships in the 100m Sprint, 100m Hurdles and 200m Hurdles! Blake has also qualified for the National Championships in the 100m and 200m Hurdles!
Since October 2020, Blake has been coached by Emil Rizk – former Coach of Australian Sprinter Josh Ross – and has seen big changes to his technique, strength and mental health as an athlete!
While maintaining school commitments and a busy training schedule Blake still finds time to work with younger aspiring athletes as a volunteer hurdles coach.
Blakes next big event is the Little Athletics State Championships on the 27th and 28th March. Good luck Blake!
