Jack was described as “The perfect Athlete” in The Westerrn Australian of 27/10/1933:

“Records may crash before the perfect athlete who can astound even himself in the supreme inter-school effort. Such an athlete was Jack Clarke, who, within a few days in 1916, set the Guildford sprint figures at 10 3-5sec., yet won the inter-school hundred in 10 l-10sec; covered the school quarter-mile in 54 1-5sec, and then the inter-school distance in 52 4-5sec. Those times have evaded capture for 16 years — so long a span that one almost hopes that they will defy time as a memorial to the most spectacular athlete who ever flashed along an inter-school track.
