BRADLEY Ticehurst will represent Australia in the lead-up to the London Olympics and he could be a part of the main event in coming years.

The 15-year-old, who lives in Altona Meadows, was one of 12 boys selected in the under-18 Australian team for an athletics tour of Europe.

Ticehurst departed earlier this month and will compete against the world’s best up-and-coming athletes until July 15.

The Williamstown Athletic club member specialises in the 100m and 200m and holds a top five national under-18 ranking in both events.

It is clear Ticehurst has a bright future in his chosen sport.

“I want to get as high as I can in terms of rankings and see who picks me up,” he said.

“Hopefully I get some good coaches, sponsorship, and who knows?”

Ticehurst, who is a student at Altona North’s Emmanuel College, started athletics when he was just six years old.

He rates Jamaican Asafa Powell, the former 100m world record holder, as his No.1 idol.
