The Year 8 Sacred Heart College student returned to school last term with gold medals in javelin and the 4×100 team relay.
�Just finding out I could qualify was really exciting, at first we decided against it because I didn�t think I was up to the standard of everyone else,� she said.
�Then my friend convinced me to go for the experience.�
Not even bad weather conditions and fierce competition stood in her way.
�I honestly couldn�t believe it (winning gold), a lot of the girls were bigger and stronger than me.�
�We had a full head wind and it came down to technique in the end.�
She threw 34.96m, 3m shy of her personal best.
The Joondalup Little Athletics competitor trains six times a week with dreams of qualifying for the Olympics.
�I am not a very confident person, I usually second guess myself,� she said.
�Winning this has opened more doors for the future.�
She named her mother and father and Cathy Freeman as her inspiration but has become a role model herself for brother Noah (8) who qualified for the hurdles state championship competition.
