Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

SEVEN Lit­tle Ath­let­ics ath­letes at­tended the Cen­tral Coast Re­gional Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val dur­ing the first week­end of Fe­bru­ary and came away with some suc­cess.

Ath­letes came from all over in­clud­ing Glad­stone, Her­vey Bay, Monto, Bund­aberg and Gayn­dah to com­pete against each other in the re­gional com­pe­ti­tion.

Com­peti­tors who fin­ished in the first four in their event are now el­i­gi­ble to at­tend the State Ath­let­ics at Bris­bane in March.

Five Gayn­dah ath­letes qual­i­fied for mul­ti­ple events af­ter be­ing awarded gold, sil­ver and bronze medals in a wide range of events and Gayn­dah Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Recorders and Of­fi­cial Leah Trott was proud to see it.

“It was very pleas­ing to see our small club was com­pet­i­tive against the big­ger cen­tres and all the ath­letes showed great sports­man­ship,” Trott said.

“Many of the boys and girls achieved per­sonal bests in their events, the car­ni­val is an op­por­tu­nity for our ath­letes to put their skills and train­ing to the test.”

Michelle Geary and Dael Giddins both vol­un­teered their time to sup­port the ath­letes.
