Com­mu­nity thanks

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

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,
