We’re thrilled to report this week that she performed brilliantly.

The 12 year old came first in the 100m, just 0.03 seconds outside the record.

She won the 200m in a race record.

Took out the long jump with another record breaking distance.

And brought home the last leg of the 4 x 100m relay for a second place for her Medowie Christian School.

But wait there’s more.

First in discus, third in shotput and Overall Age Champion.

“It’s been a lot of hard work to get to this level and I want to thank my coaches for all their help.” Keira said.

There’s no rest for Keira.

She’s now in training ahead of more NSW State events being held in Sydney throughout September.
