Lindisfarne students had some remarkable results at the recent Athletic events.

Giselle Smith

Giselle claimed the silver medal in the Heptathlon at the Combined Event’s Championships. This backed up her recent efforts at the Little Athletics Queensland State Championships with results of:

  • 100m Hurdles – Gold (PB)
  • 300m Hurdles – Bronze
  • Javelin – Silver (PB)
  • Shot Put – Gold (PB)
  • 100m Sprint – 5th Place

Natasha Flahey

Natasha Flahey also competed at the Little Athletics Queensland State Championships placing 1stin the U12 Girls 1500m Race Walking Event, breaking the State Record in the process.

Natasha also placed 5th in Discus and 9th in Javelin.

Ben Dickens

A sterling effort from Ben at the same event saw Ben crowned the U9 Boys 60m Hurdles State Champion. Congratulations Ben.

Lyla Williams

Lyla also competed, and also won Gold. Lyla won the U14 Girls 1500m Race Walk in an 11-second personal best (6.59). She has also been named in the Queensland State Team but, due to COVID-19, the trip isn’t going ahead as scheduled. They will instead have a one-day camp in Brisbane in April and receive the official uniform they would’ve competed in. This camp serves as part of the selection process for a Little Athletics Australia team to attend a four-day camp at the AIS in Canberra in September.

Congratulations on your efforts thus far, Lyla.
