Justin Merlino

Justin Merlino79cm x 61cm (30″ x 24″)
Oil on canvas board. Phillip Carrero 2009
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.
