A 20-year-old man from Townsville in north Queensland will brave the Canberra cold for the next five days after being chosen to join Robert de Castella's Indigenous marathon project.
Jack Wilson will train over the next few months with five other squad members in preparation for the New York Marathon in November.
He will have to brave the cold in Canberra as the weather will be a big contrast to his home town of Townsville in north Queensland. Jack said he is excited at selection, after he missed out last year. 'It's unreal, it's like a dream come true.'
