Limitless Track Team - bringing athletics back to the South Coast
What a year the Limitless Track Team has had. 63 STATE medals 🥇6 Australian medals 🥇 3 international medals .
The team also had another six members make the top 6 at the Australian Championships and almost all made a state final, even in their first year. In what is an incredible accomplishment the team almost all made state championships with 11 athletes from the team making the Australian Championships in March 2019 . The Limitless Track Team are not a huge squad but they do make up for that with their work ethic and determination. By their example and with a building interest in athletics on the South Coast the community is becoming more aware of athletics as an optional sport for their children to enjoy and advance within. With the continued support of schools such as Broulee Public who continue to play a vital role in nurturing and supporting athletes from a young age there is great opportunity for teams such as Limitless to bring local runners to an elite level. Congratulations to the team and to coach Andae Kalemusic for the fantastic achievements this year. Of significance to athletics in the South East are the great opportunities that are there for all ages. Running can be a solitary sport or you can choose to run with groups like Broulee Runners and parkrun out of Batemans Bay. Running suits all ages and capacities. Mostly however it begins with the little ones and the interest in running as a sport has been given a slid injection via the recent Youth Olympics performance of Broulee's Jaylah Hancock-Cameron Now a "poster person" for the sport Jaylah is proud to stand beside the recent promotion banner that promotes athletics in the South East. "Support South Coast Athletics"
Above; Jaylah with long time support Graeme Allen from Capital Signs (Fyshwick), who kindly sponsored a life size pull up sign of Jaylah, in the hope to assist in the promotion of athletics on the south coast! Of significance to Jaylah and to the sport she now represents was the honour of being invited to Broulee Primary to present the champion house and sports person of the year award. Jaylah was the recipient of that same award that she presented back when she was ending her primary school years. Jaylah's mother Leanne asked "who would have thought 5 yrs on she would be standing on stage wearing the green and gold uniform and carrying a youth Olympic silver medal around her neck, along with so many other NSW and national achievements to her name?" "A statement for each and every student present, that no matter where you come from, what school you go too, with hard work, determination and sacrifice dreams can be made possible. Jaylah has been involved in a few award ceremonies before today, but today’s introduction was by far the very best by Mrs Janelle Morgan, who along with a lot of other teachers have played a major part in the growth of one of their students." "You spoke with pride and had that personal connection, that no one has done before now, Mr Ward would have been watching over today, he too would have been full of pride, along with all of Jaylah’s teachers." If you have a child who has an interest in athletics then be sure to enquire of the school to see what programs are available and if there aren't any then you might consider local groups such as Limitless to train with, ensuring that perfect (and safe) is taught from the outset.
