LITTLE Athletics Australia has for the third year teamed with an airline to offer a chance to meet former Olympian John Steffensen.

The Little Jetstars competition celebrates good sportsmanship and dedication with five lucky winners receiving an exclusive training session for them and 15 friends, led by one of Australia’s most well known athletes.

A former Little Athletics participant, Steffensen said he was excited to get back to his grassroots where it all began.

“Little Athletics holds very fond memories for me and is such a great start for any kid who loves sport,” he said.

“I had a lot of fun in my Little Athletics days and it was a great excuse to stay healthy and get involved in the community from a young age.”

Jetstar Australia chief executive Catriona Larritt said it was exciting having a big sporting star on board.

The first of five Little Jetstars competition winners will be announced at the beginning of November and the remaining winners announced monthly through to March.
