He's got a clue or two about athletics.
Lithgow's Angus Clues recently competed in the Australian Combined Event Championships where he took the title of the U15 Australian Heptathlon Champion.
The event was held at the Queensland Sport and Athletic Centre in Brisbane on February 22 and 23.
The heptathlon required Clues to compete in 100m hurdles, high jump, 200m sprint, shot put, long jump, javelin and 1500m run.
According to Clues' mum Sally-Anne, the heptathlon was one of the toughest, most mentally and physically challenging events Clues has competed in.
"It requires a great amount of training across a variety of disciplines.
"On one hand, he needed the strength and specific techniques required for throwing javelin or shot put as well as the explosive power and speed needed for long jump and sprints and the overall aerobic fitness needed for running 1500 metres at the end of the program," she said.
Sally-Anne said the conditions in Queensland were also extremely challenging with high humidity and hot temperatures, but Clues' performed extremely well.
The young athlete performed in the 1500m eventually finishing 300 plus points to clear of his nearest rival to take the gold medal and become the U15 Australian Heptathlon Champion.
Sally-Anne said her and her husband Douglas were proud of Angus.
"Of course we are happy that he walked away with gold but most importantly we are impressed by the way he conducted himself on the sporting field.
"He is unwavering in his drive for success, but he is also very humble. We teach him to stay grounded and true to himself," she said.
She said it never ceased to amaze her how Clues has a genuine drive to be a better athlete.
"He does not concern himself with medals, but constantly aims to throw further, jump longer and higher and run faster."
Clues would like to thank his coach and mentor Rick Berrell and acknowledged the sports people he's met and friendships he has formed.
"Rick's patience and skill has helped me to go from a pretty average athlete to someone who can compete at a much higher level," Clues said.
At the event there were also decathletes attempting to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics.
Clues was privileged enough to meet and talk to one of them.
"It is important that young athletes are able to meet the athletes who inspire them. It is not an easy road for individuals wanting to pursue their dreams in the sport of Track and Field in Australia," Sally-Anne said.
Next on the calendar for Clues is the State Championships for Little Athletics at Sydney Olympic Park on March 14 and 15.
