Last week Benji Marshall and Ben Barba had a shock draw. This was at the Commonwealth Games. Everyone got of their seat because someone broke the world record for the 100m. But they didn’t know who broke it and then the host said it was a tie between Benji and Ben. But let me tell you how it happened from the very beginning.
On the 18 September 2023 was the 100m final and the competitors were Billy Slater, Jarryd Hayne, Ben Barba, Chris Sandow, Greg Inglis, Josh and Brett Morris and last but not least The favorite to win, Benji Marshall.
They were all very very fast but the first qualifier was the one who won it last year, Benji Marshall. But the people’s champion was Ben Barba. So the two people who had the best chance of winning was Benji Marshall and Ben Barba.
The competitors were warming up. But suddenly Benji Marshall was screaming in pain because he sprained his ankle. So the doctors came in and carried him to the medical room and wrapped his ankle. But the race was about to start without him. On your Marks, Set. But Benji Marshall appeared from nowhere and said, “I am going to race”. So the starter repeated on your Marks, Set, GO. Everyone was draw but Ben Barba was going in the lead. But Benji Marshall came out of nowhere and came 1st draw with Ben Barba and broke the world record at the same time.
