Justin commenced Little Athletics in under-9s and got into hurdling by mistake after his father entered him in a hurdles event instead of the flat. He took it in his stride, literally, and won zone, regional and State titles that year.

Justin has just completed a degree in physiotherapy at Sydney University.

A win at the Australian University Games in September of 2007 rounded out a landmark year for Justin.

In 2008, Justin claimed his second national title in the 110m hurdles. Justin then went on to compete in a number of international meets and was selected in the Target 2012 Squad.
