I know of a couple.

Jed Bews: u9 high jump centre record for Geelong, 1.30 (wow) Australian record is 1.43, 1.30 wins state titles most years, also holds pole vault records and maybe sprint records iirc.

Jack Crisp: 400 mtr centre record for Wangaratta u9s, time escapes me but it wasn't great, 1.12 or something like that, but ran on a grass track.

J Blair: pissed 2.83 metres up the wall in the toilets at Wonthaggi West Primary School in grade 2
It's a shame they banned in-play pissing from the AFL rules - had so much potential. I think they felt the girls were at too much of a disadvantage..

Koutoufides was U16 National champion in high jump & 110m hurdles. Dunno about holding any records, but it would be safe to say he’d have picked up some record or other at his school or athletics club along the journey.

Took that record from Todd Carney if I remember correctly?
Todd Carney's record was 2.43 metres from memory but specifically was highest piss whilst catching-it-in-mouth-on-way-down. Blair struggled with the accuracy and timing so failed to break that one

I think Joel Selwood had the record for the 300m Hurdles at some point in his younger years. Might have been broken since though.

Why doesn't that surprise me, supreme athlete.
