George Town's Getasew Ferguson has added to Tasmania's golden haul at the national junior athletics titles in Perth.
The middle distance specialist won the men's under-15 3000 metres in 9:09.05, more than a second ahead of West Australian Luke Graves.
Not content, Ferguson also won his heat to qualify fastest for the 800m in a time of 2:04.78.
A succession of Tasmanian athletes added a silver lining to the championships.
Rebecca Direen's sixth and final throw of 12.81m saw her finish second in the under-20 shot put, 21 centimetres behind winner Taylah Sengul and 26cm ahead of third-placed Yasenaca Denicaucau, of New South Wales.
Julia Minnucci's time of 2:07.38 was enough for second place in the under-18 800m, behind NSW winner and IAAF world youth championships qualifier Georgia Wassall, with Kiwi Tarryn Davey third.
Tahlia Hunt gave Tasmania a solid start to yesterday's program with a silver in the under-16 3000m walk. Hunt's state record time of 14.28.72 placed her behind Queensland winner Clara Smith and more than a minute ahead of Victorian Emily Hamilton.
Elliott Rae added a bronze in the under-17 400m hurdles, clocking 56.94 behind Victorian winner Nicholas Milton and Rene Zacchini, of Queensland.
Further bronzes followed in the 4x400m relays.
Launceston's Abbey de la Motte picked up her second medal of the meet when she teamed up with young guns Jess Robinson, Lily Castle and Samantha Lind to clock 3:54.86 in the under-20 event won by NSW with Queensland second.
In the under-18 equivalent, Lind and Castle teamed up with Maddy Scott and Claudia Nicklason to run 3:50.11 which narrowly edged out Queensland and secured bronze behind NSW and Victoria.
Tasmania just missed out on more medals in the under-18 men's 100m in which Jesse Usoalii and Jacob Despard finished fourth and fifth respectively, both within a quarter of a second or third place.
