Year 12 girl selected for Olympic pathway programme

Year 12 girl selected for Olympic pathway programme

Well done to Hattie, from Year 12, who has been selected for the Olympic pathway programme in athletics for pole vault owing to her superb performance throughout the season and after she came second in the nationals this year.

The programme is very selective and it aims to help young athletes become international athletes and is the first step to competing on the international stage.

She will attend a camp every month where she will learn to deal with the pressures of competing at such a high level and receive specialist coaching, nutritional advice and advice on how to look after her body to keep it healthy while pushing it to the max.

This is a superb achievement, well done Hattie.
