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.

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.
