Interesting Facts

  • Andrew McCabe is the youngest member of the 4x100m relay team.The 21-year-old from Townsville has a twin brother.
  • In 2007 McCabe began travelling to Brisbane once a week to train. An injury ruled him out for two years and when he returned to the track in 2009 he had to start from scratch. Then he suffered another setback and spent three months on the sideline with a broken kneecap.
  • Despite the setbacks, McCabe says running is one of the most challenging things he has ever done and he likes the fact that it is not easy.
  • McCabe inched towards clocking an A qualifier in the 200m with a personal best time of 20.70 in June.
  • McCabe is coached by dual Olympian Paul Di Bella.
