A Cann-do at­ti­tude

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

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 vplacreg@gmail.com or call 0407 082 794.

Cham­pion ath­lete Luke Cann is coach of the Vic­to­ria Park Phoenix Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club.
