Rebecca qualified for the Australian Junior Athletics Championships after winning the 3000m walk at the Athletics Victoria Track and Field Championships. The Championships were held at Sydney Park in March.

Her years of training, hard work and persistence paid off when Rebecca crossed the line in time of 15 minutes 10 seconds in first position, seven seconds ahead of her nearest rival, to be presented with the gold medal.

Rebecca trains for her athletics 2-3 times a week as well as fitting in swimming, dancing, tennis and volleyball training.

Congratulation Rebecca on such a brilliant performance and a huge achievement; we are all very proud of you!
