Jessie’s on top of the world

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

PAD­DOCKS in Mulgildie are not only for cat­tle, but are an im­por­tant train­ing ground for one of the coun­try’s most promis­ing young ath­letes.

At only 11-years-old, Jessie Mo­scrop fin­ished eighth in Aus­tralia for dis­cus and first in the shot­put re­lay dur­ing the Na­tional Ath­let­ics Com­pe­ti­tion in Tas­ma­nia, the feat se­cur­ing her the Monto Ju­nior Sports Award this Aus­tralia Day.

But more im­por­tant to Jessie than fin­ish­ing eighth in the coun­try was throw­ing a per­sonal best at the com­pe­ti­tion when she threw 40.57m.
