Jacko Gill pulls out of final Millenium meet

6:06 am on 22 December 2011

The record breaking shot putter Jacko Gill has withdrawn from tomorrow's final Millennium athletics meet on the North Shore saying he's too tired.

The 17 year old Takapuna athlete says his efforts over the past two weeks including qualifying for the London Olympic Games and breaking his own World Youth record have taken a physical and mental toll and he's not up to performing at his best.
