After 994 days of waiting, Jack Hale trimmed his 100 metres personal best down to 10.20 at the Jandakot Airport Track Classic in Perth.
"That was good to get a PB after two and a half years," said Hale, who won the event by 0.14 seconds.
"Not the cleanest of races but came here to race and that is what I got."
Since moving to Melbourne, Hale has worked hard to build on his phenomenal promise as a junior.
"Layers and layers of work over the last two years and now it is really starting to show. Last year I just rolled into it and now it is time to really start running fast."
Hamish Peacock, maintained his 75-76m season winning with a throw of 75.95m.
