After a brief break over summer, 11 year old Keira returned to the track recently at the Little Athletics Regional Championships at Mingara.
“She won all 4 of her events, the 100m, 200m, triple jump and long jump, with a record leap of 5.12m, a record that has stood for 28 years,” proud dad John McGregor said.
A modest Keira said, “I wish to thank my coach Charles Ringuet for the hours, days, weeks, years he has spent helping me.”
“Also many thanks for the help and support from my Raymond Terrace Athletics Club and Dave Summerville.”
“I was very happy to break a 28 year old long jump record.”
The Hawks Nest youngster has been competing since she was seven years old and late last year won a silver medal at her first international competition.
“Keira deserves all the achievements that she obtains because of the enduring and concentrated training schedule she carries out all the year,” John McGregor added.
Keira’s is now off to the State Championships being held at Sydney Olympic Park from March 23 through to March 25.
She’ll be competing in 4 events.
Keira now has her own fundraising page with the Australian Sports Foundation.
