A Cann-do attitude
THE kids at Victoria Park Phoenix Little Athletics Club are over the moon to have a record-holding javelin champion as their coach.
Luke Cann currently holds the Australian under20 record and was ranked as the fourth best javelin thrower in 2013.
Cann accepted the position as coach of the club while preparing to qualify for the Rio Olympics in 2016 and juggling his studies.
While Cann can throw a javelin further than 76m, he has previously competed in decathlon events and is qualified to coach all athletics events.
The club trains at East Victoria Park Primary School on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-5pm, with a try-out day on September 8. To register email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0407 082 794.
