While the town of Walgett may be a long way from Tokyo in Japan, that hasn't stopped Jack O'Brien and his Olympic dreams.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games have been postponed, so Jack has been spending his time helping out on the family farm.

While his return to the property has been a great help to his family during this time, he has also been working hard in his homemade gym, dedicated to his training on an erg machine.

"I want to continue with rowing to wherever it takes me," he said.
