Pocket rocket wins big

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

SHE may be small in stature and not one for words but Chloe Burt just loves her sport.

Win­ner of the Biggen­den Ju­nior Sports Award, Chloe has rep­re­sented her dis­trict in cross coun­try and the North Bur­nett in soc­cer and rugby league.

She has also rep­re­sented Mary­bor­ough in hockey and will be lin­ing up this week­end at Kawana after gain­ing se­lec­tion in the Her­vey Bay/Fraser Coast Oz Tag team.

Her nom­i­nee said Chloe was an in­spi­ra­tional role model for her com­mu­nity.

“She has shown that no mat­ter how small you are, or whether you are male or fe­male, you can achieve any­thing, if you are will­ing to put in the ef­fort.

“Chloe is very en­cour­ag­ing of oth­ers in all of her sport­ing teams and those within her school and com­mu­nity.”

After ac­cept­ing her award from Cr Lofty Wendt, she was placed on a chair in front of the mi­cro­phone to say two words of “thank you”.

In the com­ing weeks the fam­ily will be mov­ing to Mary­bor­ough as dad Si­mon is now teach­ing at Mary­bor­ough High.

Asked what sport she would play this year Chloe said “all of them, plus gym­nas­tics”.
