Greater Western Victoria draft hopeful Jay Rantall has just broken the record for the grueling two kilometre time trial at the AFL Draft Combine.
Rantall smashed the record by 14 seconds, finishing in a time of 5.50 at the Holden Centre.
He also finished equal first in the notoriously difficult Yo-Yo running test.
He tied with Vic Country teammate Cooper Stephens on level 21.8.
Greater Western Victoria Rebels talent manager Phil Partington said he was thrilled for the youngster.
"He's had a really outstanding draft combine," he said.
"We've had really positive feedback from AFL clubs who have had the opportunity to interview Jay this week.
"His local footy club, South Warrnambool, local school Warrnambool College and his family should be proud of the way he has presented himself this week.
"It's a credit to him, how well he has prepared.
Geelong's Jacob Kennerley held the previous 2km time trial record with a 6.04 run last year.
Cartlon's Sam Walsh, who hails from Cobden, finished in a time of 6.07 in 2018.
The 2km run replaced the 3km time trial in 2017.
Partington said Rantall had benefited from his experience playing high-level basketball and had brought that to his footy.
