Toukley District Athletics Club athlete, Liam Coles, has backed up his performance at the 2019 Australian Track and Field Championships with an even greater result at the 2019 Australian Little Athletics Championships (ALAC).
The ALAC is a team event which brings together Australia’s elite athletes in the Under 13 and Under 15 age brackets, and was held at Hobart’s Domain Athletic Centre from April 27-28.
Coles competed as part of the NSW team, which had a blistering performance throughout the two day competition and saw team NSW walkaway with two of the four trophies on offer.
Individually, Coles collected his own host of medals, with golds in 200m Hurdles and 4x 100m Relay, bronze in 100m Run and fourth in the Triple Jump.
Coles’ mother, Deb, wished to thank the members of the Toukley District Athletics Club for supporting Liam’s bid to compete at the ALAC by donating over $700 through a Go Fund Me Campaign to cover associated expenses.
“This was a once in a life time opportunity for Liam and it means the world to him that he has you all supporting him.
“Liam also would like to thank you all.
“He can’t wait for Athletics’ season to start again so he can see everyone and thank you in person,” she said.
