Jarrod Bannister 1984-2018

Friday, 9 February 2018 | Athletics Australia

Athletics Australia is saddened and shocked to learn of the death of Jarrod Bannister, aged 33.  Jarrod’s mark of 89.02m is the current Australian record in javelin, set in Brisbane in 2008.

Two years later, he won gold for his performance at the Delhi Commonwealth Games. It was the highlight of the many occasions that Bannister represented Australia which also included the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006 and Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, and the 2011 IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea.

“On behalf of Athletics Australia, I extend our deepest condolences to Jarrod’s family and friends and urge the athletics fraternity to support each other at this difficult time,” said Athletics Australia CEO, Darren Gocher.
