Chloe selected in cross country side
BUNDLE OF ENERGY to travel to Gayndah for the North Burnett trials
CHLOE Burt is a bundle of energy and doesn’t allow her size to stop her from enjoying what she loves to do – play sport and dance.
The 10-year-old came in second after running two kilometres in last week’s cross country at Biggenden.
“My mum told me I had to run all the way as she had spies on the course who would let her
Dad would have just said to me ‘toughen up, princess’.
know if I walked,” she explained. “So I ran all the way.” Her placing gained her selection in the district team to travel to Gayndah for the North Burnett cross country trials in May.
Mum Donna said being small hadn’t stopped Chloe from getting involved in sport.
“Born five weeks premmie she has always been a bundle of energy,” she said.
The first week of May will be a busy time for Chloe as she has also been selected in the girls’ North Burnett football team to play in the Wide Bay trials on May 7-8.
“I have always liked sport – it’s fun,” Chloe said.
She plays competitive hockey with United in Maryborough on Saturdays.
Why United when her dad, Simon, plays for Wallaroos?
“I liked their banner,” she said.
Being small I asked Chloe had she ever had any injuries while playing hockey.
She replied with a smile: “No, but then dad would have just said to me ‘toughen up, princess’.”
If you’re looking for Chloe on Thursday afternoons she can’t wait for her dance classes where she does all types of dancing, including acrobatics, jazz, tap and ballet.
