 He will be competing in the semi-final on Monday 2 August at 9:05 pm AEST with his goal to make the finals on Thursday at 10:00 pm AEST

On his Instagram: “In his post-race interview, Steve quoted “I knew, physically, I was in good shape but being able to execute physically is a different skill to being physically fit. The fact I was able to do that today has given me great confidence heading into tomorrow’s semi-final.”
