The first property purchase for Patfull was 57 Moolabar St, where he lived for three years when he first moved to Brisbane.“I chose to live there because it was close enough to the Gabba,” he said.“It was quiet and a really nice suburb and still affordable enough for a first homebuyer.” Now his football career is over, Patfull said he was looking to buy a place at Bondi and settle there.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor8 hours agoHe said special memories of the three-bedroom, one-bathroom home, on a 405sq m block, was when he was younger and had moved up from Adelaide to play regular AFL.“To be able to buy a house at such a young age was something that I felt really fortunate to be able to do,” he said.

IAAF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPSÂ Former 100 metres world record holder Donovan Bailey has backed Usain Bolt to bow out in triumph at the IAAF World Championships starting on Saturday in London despite his slow buildup to the athletics showpiece.Bolt logged his season best of 9.95 seconds just over a week ago in Monaco, a time beaten by a raft of sprinters this year.But the 30-year-old Jamaican is still raging favourite to win his fourth 100m World title, and with good reason, according to former world and Olympic champion Bailey.“Anyone that bets against Bolt at a major championship isn’t smart,” the Jamaica-born Canadian told Reuters at the weekend.“Those athletes have to have a mistake-free race to make (the 100m final) interesting,” he said of Bolt’s rivals.Bolt is currently ranked joint seventh with arch-rival Justin Gatlin on the year’s top timesheet which is headed by world leader and American NCAA champion Christian Coleman.Coleman ran 9.82 seconds in Eugene, Oregon last month.Bolt’s Jamaican training partner Yohan Blake is second on the list with 9.90, ahead of South African Akani Simbine (9.92) and Americans Cameron Burrell and Christopher Belcher.Former Trinidad and Tobago sprinter Ato Boldon, who won the 200m World Championship in 1997, thinks only Blake has a chance to spoil world record holder Bolt’s party in London.“If Blake is healthy, he can be a real threat to Bolt. I don’t know that anyone else this year has shown me that they can be better than Bolt in the last 50m,” Boldon told Reuters.Bolt, who has won eight Olympic and 11 world championship gold medals, is planning to quit the track after competing in the 100m and 4x100m relay in London.Boldon, a four-times Olympic medallist, said there could be no debate about the world’s greatest ever sprinter.“There isn’t anyone who can say that he (Bolt) has not been the best ever,” he said.“Jesse Owens was the most important, Carl Lewis made sprinting profitable, but Bolt is the GOAT (greatest of all time).”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
