Victorian Sports Awards
I had the privilege of attending the Presentation Ceremony for the Victorian Sports Awards held on 14 March 2017.
Emma is pictured with Olympian Morgan Mitchell and Paralympian Ahmed Kelly.
Morgan was named in the Australian Olympic team last year where she made it through to the 400m semi finals in Rio. Ahmed’s amazing success in the swimming pool has led his journey to selection in the London and Rio Paralympic teams.
Emma Files—Cross Country
Emma won the cross country under-17 event at the 2016 Victorian All Schools Cross Country Championships and was also captain of her Strathmore Secondary College school team for the second year in a row. She represented Victoria at the national event in Canberra where she was placed fourth, her best result ever. She is now ranked number one for her age group in Victoria and fourth nationally.
I would like to congratulate Emma on her fantastic achievements.
