    Tom Walsh's mental game is set to be tested

    Tom Walsh's mental game is set to be tested


    The shotput champion's pre-Olympics schedule has needed re-shuffling, with the postponement of his title defence at the World Indoor Athletics Championships.

    Next month's meet in China has been delayed by 12 months in the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak.

    Walsh will instead compete in the Queensland Track Challenge in late March.

    He says not being an international event is a different challenge from what he was expecting.
