Congratulations Jake in Little Athletics State Carnival
Late last year, I went in a Zone Carnival for Long Jump, 60m Hurdles, 100m Hurdles and Discus. From Zone, I made it to Region for all four events which was held in February. I felt nervous but very excited to represent my club. The top two qualifiers for each event were selected for State.
State was held on Saturday 24 March and Sunday 25 March at the Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush Bay. I did the Long Jump and I came second which meant I was the first up for my event on Sunday morning at 8.00 am. I felt VERY nervous and AMAZED because I was one of the top 25 of NSW!!
I didn’t jump my usual jump because I was very nervous and I ended up in the 19th position. I am aiming high for next year as I know what to expect.
