Young skater claims na­tional gold

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

CARLISLE res­i­dent Mai Juilus came away with seven medals at the Aus­tralian In­line Speed Skat­ing Cham­pi­onships in Pen­rith, NSW.

Mai (12) won four gold medals and three sil­ver in the un­der 15 and un­der 17 cat­e­gories against com­peti­tors across the na­tion.

Mai had ap­plied for a do­na­tion from the Town of Vic­to­ria Park to partly fund her travel and ac­com­mo­da­tion to at­tend the cham­pi­onships.

She was granted an in­di­vid­ual do- na­tion to rep­re­sent the state at a na­tional level for sport.

“I’m thank­ful to have re­ceived this do­na­tion from the Town; it makes get­ting to the com­pe­ti­tions a lit­tle eas­ier and will hope­fully fur­ther as­sist me in reach­ing my goal to be cho­sen for the Aus­tralian team,” Mai said.

Mayor Trevor Vaughn said he was proud the Town’s do­na­tion had con­trib­uted to Mai’s suc­cess at the na­tional cham­pi­onships.

Mai Juilus won seven medals.
