“Such an honour to represent the green and gold,” reads one of his Instagram posts on the Games.

His profile on the Western Australia website gives a glimpse of his character.

“It’s the days when the body aches, the desire is low, you feel tired and you feel weak… those are the days when champions train,” Pollard added.

He considers his first podium at the 2019 Australian Championships as the fondest memory of his promising career. It will surely change if he is able to win a medal at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
