Nine-year-old Mikayla Talbot took out gold in the under nine girls long jump at the Little Athletics Victoria State Track and Field Championships early this month.
The Jindera Public School student jumped 3.85m to take first place, 11cm ahead of her closest competitor. The little athlete remained humble when talking about her win.
“I just want to thank my mum and dad, my coach and Albury Little Athletics. I’m so happy,” she said.
A dozen athletes from Albury Little Athletics took part in the State Track and Field Championships at Lakeside Stadium in Melbourne.
Albury High student Mitchall Anderson, 15, took out silver in discus and bronze in shotput in the hotly contested U15B age group. Scarlett Galvin of St Patrick’s Holbrook, 10, won silver in the U10G high jump and Ethan Talbot, 13, won bronze in U13B long jump.
It’s the icing on the cake for Ethan, who is one of only 11 boys in the state to qualify for a spot in the Victorian team for the Australian Little Athletics Championships to be held at Sydney’s Olympic Park in April.
Albury Little Athletics President Brett Schofield was ecstatic with the weekend’s results.
“It has been a great weekend for Albury Little Aths with all our athletes getting some great results and fantastic personal bests. Their hard work has paid off and the club couldn’t be more proud,” Mr Schofield said.
All children aged 5-15, from beginner to advanced ability, are able to join Albury Little Athletics. Registration information can be found at www.alburylittleaths.org.au or on their Facebook page.
