Wow !!!! :shock: :shock:

They didn't list the WR set by Josephine Tomic (still at school), but they listed the one set by Tom Palmer (see excerpt below)

First year junior, Canberra's Tom Palmer, 17, set a new Australian record on his way to gold in the men's kilometre time trial. His time of 1min02.366sec (57.724km/h) lowered the Australian mark of 1min04.051 set by West Australian Scott Sunderland at the 2006 Junior World Championships in Belgium.

Bloody good work.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi !!!
