Australian sprinter Josh Azzopardi was once pursued by Rugby Australia, but he turned down a rugby sevens offer to focus on his track and field career. Despite facing an uphill battle to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics, Azzopardi is determined to line up for Australia in the men’s 100-meter dash. Although he recognizes the challenge ahead and his current rankings, Azzopardi has unfinished business in athletics and will make his comeback from a hamstring tear in a race in Germany. He rejected the rugby sevens offer because he wanted to fully commit to track and field and see what he could achieve. Azzopardi’s journey from Little Athletics to rugby league to Oztag eventually led him to sprinting, where he discovered his potential. His passion for the sport lies in the satisfaction of seeing the direct outcome of his hard work and pushing himself to reach new heights. While reaching the level of Australia’s fastest man, Rohan Browning, may seem daunting, Azzopardi is motivated by the challenge and sets his goals high. He acknowledges the talents of rugby sevens players like Trae Williams but believes sprinters are underrated in the sports world. Azzopardi is content with quietly pursuing his Olympic dream and working tirelessly to achieve his goals.
