Henry Frayne

Henry FrayneSport: Track and Field

Nation: Australia

DOB: April 14, 1990

Career Highlights: The nephew of 1984 Olympian Bruce Frayne, Henry is a relatively new face on the international scene, but one that could be quite recognizable after the London Games. Long considered a triple jump specialist, Frayne also took part in the long jump at the 2012 World Indoor Championships, winning a silver medal and qualifying for the Olympics in that category after already locking up a triple jump spot. He's expected to be the first Aussie since Ian Tomlinson in 1964 to compete in both events at the Olympics. Not since the 1968 Mexico City Games has Australia had two athletes medal in the same event - then the country had dual winners in the 80m hurdles and 200m - but Frayne and fellow long jumper Mitchell Watt could repeat the feat in London. Even still, Frayne may be a better bet to medal in the triple jump, the event he posted a personal-best - albeit wind-assisted - 17.34m during the leadup to his Olympic qualifying.
