WHAT HAVE YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS BEEN SO FAR?
I returned to my home town 3 years ago and started running in addition to my other sports at its my true happy place. I have competed in a half marathon, numerous local fun runs, won father/son division in Seaside Scamper, taken out school, zone, regional cross country events the last 2 years. Qualified for state athletics in the longer distant runs where I have received PBs. I won the beach run at SLSC Country Champs in Burleigh, qualified for State in Swansea and Aussie Titles in Burleigh.
WHY DID YOU APPLY FOR THIS GRANT?
I have been invited to tour America next month with Sports Travel Australia Cross Country Tour Group and to compete, train and experience all different aspects of coaching is something I thought never ever possible.
HOW WILL THIS GRANT BENEFIT YOU? AND HOW DO YOU PLAN ON USING IT?
It will go towards some of my training/sporting costs, entry fees for runs and my never ending need for new joggers.
WHAT ARE YOU HOPES AND DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE?
Next year I hope to improve on all my times and results with my ultimate dream of running forever injury free. I am old enough now to join our local triathlon club and am excited to improve on all aspects on my fitness with representing not only my family but school at all levels. I intend to keep up all my other sports of martial arts, touch football, Oztag, AFL, Swimming, Nippers as well as my Umpiring/refereeing commitments and SLSC beach patrols.
WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?
My Dad. He started martial arts as an adult, lost weight, regained his fitness and won every cage fight he went in. He is now going to be my chaperone so I can ride locally with the triathlon club and enable me to be marked as competent to compete in comps.
