The 16-year-old Auckland shot-putter Jacko Gill now has his sights set on next year's Olympics.

Gill has become the first athlete since Usain Bolt to win world age group titles in reverse order after taking the World Youth title in France this morning, having already won the World Junior title.

Gill, who threw a personal best by half a metre despite a finger injury and finished more than 4 metres ahead of the competition.... says his next big event is the London Olympics....



OUT:...an yeh.

DUR:...16 secs

Gill can't compete in next month's senior World Athletics Championships because he's not 18.
