The championship is run over three days and is the ‘big event’ on the State’s athletic calendar. “Competition is extremely high and strongly contested,” Keira’s Dad, John McGregor said. “Keira came 4th in both her 100 and 200m events.” “In her triple jump she came 3rd with a bronze medal.” But just like Keira, John kept the best news to last. “In her very last event, the long jump, she did an exceptional jump of 5.14m and won the event, coming away with a gold medal and title of NSW All Schools State Champion.” “Throughout, in her sprint races the headwinds had not been in her favour with her smaller build, and the bigger stronger Sydney girls were too good” “But overall she performed admirably and to return home with one championship is such a feat.” Keira, who attends the Medowie Christian School, said,” It’s good to have some time off now from training through the school holidays, and I can’t thank my coach and family enough for all their support.” By Margie TIERNEY NSW STATE ALL SCHOOL CHAMPIONSHIPS: State Champion, Keira McGregor.
