Bathurst runner Will Curtin was training hard during the coronavirus lockdown and he's received just reward for his work.
Curtin has broken three Bathurst Little Athletic under 11s records in the space of a week - the 200 metre on November 9, before beating the records in both the 100 metres and 400 metres on Monday gone.
He had been working towards breaking the 200 metres record for some time.
"I was trying to break the record because I had got close to it beforehand," he said.
"It was exciting, very exciting to break it. It's very big for me because the last record I broke [last year] was 29-years-old."
Curtin's time of 28.40 seconds in the under 11s 200 metre broke the previous record of 28.80 seconds that Jason McClements achieved back on March 8, 1983.
His time of 1:6.30 in the 400 metre broke the previous record set in 2011 by 0.09 of a second, while his time of 13.73 seconds in the 100 metres broke the previous record of 13.78 seconds that was set in 2012.
The Holy Family Primary School student said he has put a lot of practice in during the off-season and the coronavirus lockdown.

"I've been putting in a lot of work. I've been training during COVID to get as good as I can," he said.
"I just went with my coach and did some stuff at home, making sure I was fit and healthy.
"When I was seven, I started running and I really enjoyed it but I wasn't great at the long jump. The year after, I went to basketball but I was running really well at cross country that year, so I went back to Little A's."
Curtin is currently being coached by Wes Gibson, who has helped with his technique and his speed.
"He's a really good coach. When you're stressed, he'll talk to you and you'll feel a bit better," he said.
"He works on your technique and he's made me faster since he started coaching me."
Thalia Rumming was another member of the Bathurst Little Athletics squad that was able to set a new record, throwing for 9.46 metres in the under 16s shot put.
That beat the old recorded of 9.32 metres set by Caitlin Reeves back October 19, 2015.
It's also been a big past few weeks for a number of different athletes at the club, with a number of personal bests beaten across all age groups.
