GUNN RUNS SIZZLING SEASON OPENER

Olympic hopeful Tyler Gunn has run the fastest season opener of his career to claim victory in the 400 metres, at the Hunter Challenge.

The 21 year-old set up the win, with a blistering first 300 into a strong headwind, and then powered away from national representative Ian Halpin and two-time Australian junior champ Keegan Bell.

His time of 47.33 was just over a second off his personal best.

He’ll compete in the New South Wales Country Championships at the end of the month.
