100m - 9.93 (Mito, 05-May-2003) Oceania Record
200m - 20.50 (2003)

Season's Best:
100m - 10.20 (2005)
200m - 20.56 (2005)

World Ranking:

Patrick was raised on a fishing trawler in North Queensland by his Irish father Patrick Snr after his aboriginal mother died in a car crash when Patrick was 2 years old.

Had a great season in 2000 with a competitive rivalry with Matt Shirvington setting the fastest 100m time (10.10) ever by an Australian on home soil at the Melbourne Track Classic.

As a 17-year-old Patrick was awarded a scholarship to St. Paul's College, Moss Vale, an international boarding college where the majority of students were from Asia.

He became the first Australian to run sub 10 seconds for 100m in May 2003. His 9.93 in Mito, Japan lowered the Australian record by 0.1. Earlier in the Australian season he ran 9.88 and 9.90, but the times weren't recognised because of tailwinds.

Patrick's interests include playing chess and languages. He speaks Cantonese which he learned at high school.
