11 year old Keira is now the State Long Jump Champion after an amazing leap of 5.17 metres.
“It was a real tale of triumph and trauma together,” Keira’s Dad, John said.
“Keira was suffering with flu and competed under a real handicap.”
“In the triple jump she came 4th with a personal best of 10.4m, missing a medal by only 1cm,” John said.
“In both her 100 and 200m sprints she came 2nd in her heats but had nothing left in her in the finals due to her flu and came 7th and 8th.”
“She has performed magnificently and I truly don’t know how!” John said.
“She deserves her beautiful gold medal which she now treasures.”
The Medowie School Student still has a year to wait before competing on the National stage in the under 13’s.
So for now, it’s back to the track, for more training ahead of the School Athletics season starting shortly and working up from Zone to State Championships again in September.
