Staples Leads Dolphins Day 3 Charge at Junior Pan Pacs

Rising star Joshua Staples has added a third Gold medal to his return luggage, leading the Junior Dolphins continued momentum on day 3 of the Junior Pan Pacific Championships in Hawaii.

Staples executed a perfect race plan to assert his dominance in the third 100 and never look back, touching first in a new Junior Pan Pacific record of 3:48.36.

Fellow Dolphin Jamie Perkins almost secured the Australian 400m double, finishing just outside American Erin Gemmell to take Silver in 4:06.64.

There were a further three Silver Medals on night 3 of action including:

  • Jesse Coleman in the Men’s 100m Butterfly in a time of 52.23
