The 12 year old recently competed at the NSW Combined Independent Schools Sports Council, known as CIS, and won four gold medals at the Sydney competition.

Keira came first in the 100 metres, 200 metres, triple jump and long jump.

The CIS is the forerunner to the NSW All Schools Track and Field Championships.

1,700 athletes from all over the State converge on Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre for the four day event.

The event incorporates athletes from all sectors of the school system, including Government, Catholic and Independent, and has a long and rich history in NSW, being a breeding ground for many of NSW’s best athletes, including Matt Shirvington, Melinda Gainsford-Taylor, Jana Pittman, and recent Olympians Dani Stevens, Fabrice Lapierre, Ryan Gregson, Annelise Rubie, Madeline Hills, Michelle Jenneke, Victoria Mitchell, Ella Nelson, Eloise Wellings, Milly Clark, Jessica Thornton and Scott Westcott.

The competition is open to any athlete currently attending a NSW Secondary School and aged between 12 and 19.

Keira’s Dad, John said, “This is the big time and the culmination of all the events this year.”
