LONDON Olympics silver medallist Mitchell Watt won the Hunter Track Classic men's long jump shoot out open last weekend.
The 24-year-old Queenslander won the event with a leap of 7.54 metres, 16 centimetres ahead of Canberra rookie Angus Gould.
It was well short of the 8.16m jump that earned him second place in London, but Watt was easing himself back into action and used a shortened run-up of 10m.
"The plan was for 7.50m and I jumped 7.54m off half my normal run-up," Watt said.
"I wouldn't normally compete this early, but they were keen to have me down and I got what I wanted out of the meet.
"Training has been getting a bit monotonous so it was nice to break it up a bit."
Watt was one of three London Olympians to win their events at Glendale.
Wollongong's Ryan Gregson claimed the 800m title in 1 minute 49.08 seconds, while sprinter Anthony Alozie blitzed the field to win the 100m in 10.66.
Two-time Olympian Benn Harradine, from Eleebana, could not compete after recent knee surgery, but another Novocastrian, Liam Speers, won the discus with a throw of 51.43m.
Georgetown heptathlete Sophie Stanwell posted a personal best to win the women's 200m, while Sydney's Nicholas Hough won the 200m and 110m hurdles.
Newcastle's Christie Dawes, a five-time Paralympian, finished second in the wheelchair teams pursuit race.
