IWOULD not have been able to attend the National Track and Field Championships without our great community support and I am grateful for all of the help I have received.
Kids from the bush are every bit as talented as our city competitors.
We may not have all the flash gear etc, but we can still be the best we can be and give them a good fright!
You just have to have the drive and determination to push yourself that little bit harder at training and it will pay off. I was quietly determined to give it my all and to try to do a PB.
And I did. I threw a PB in the first round of just on 2m and then in the final round, I did another PB.
I was so happy with that, but more happy that the training every day brought about a bronze medal.
I made some new friends and had a lot of fun with my old friends and that is important too.
I would like to say a huge thank you to my other coach, Taryn.
She talked me through how nerves are good and to make them your friend.
She was very patient with me and showed me little things that made a huge difference.
I would also like to thank my mum and dad for their coaching and for raising the funds to allow me to go.
And a big thank you to Mitch for all your help selling tickets and your support.
I’m having a break from throwing now for a little while as I have been continuously throwing the discus since February.
I will be back into training in the New Year for the Little Athletics State Championships in March next year in Brisbane.
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and be safe. Jessie Moscrop,
