Grant sets Kate on track for BMX win

Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

KATE Tay­lor is al­ready ex­celling at one of the fastest growing sports in the world, but she has taken her com­pet­i­tive­ness to the next level thanks to a Fed­eral grant.

The 13-year-old East Fre­man­tle BMX rider used the Lo­cal Sport­ing Cham­pi­ons fund­ing to help her get to the 2017 BMX Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Bris­bane, which are be­ing held this week.

Kate, who was one of 10 young sports­peo­ple to re­ceive a grant, said she was also hop­ing to get to the World Cham­pi­onships in the United States in July.

“BMX is my pas­sion and I am very com­mit­ted to achiev­ing my goal,” she said.

Fre­man­tle MHR Josh Wilson said the Fed­eral grant helped young sport­ing tal­ent with their ex­penses when com­pet­ing at an elite level, en­abling them to reach for their goals.

Ap­pli­ca­tions for the next round of Lo­cal Sport­ing Cham­pi­ons fund­ing are open un­til June 30.
