Kyabramites get the chance on Sunday to help send outstanding teenage athlete Emily Lawson to the United States to compete in the World Junior Athletics Championships.

A fundraising film The Lego Movie will be screening at the Kyabram Theatre on Sunday from 2pm and all monies raised will help Emily’s trip to the US to take on the best in the world in her age group.

Cost is $15, which includes afternoon tea.

Emily, 17, displayed and confirmed her enormous sporting potential recently when she took gold in the Australian under-20 200m sprint championship and silver in the 400m, establishing personal best times in both performances.

Allowed to compete in only one individual event in the world titles in Oregon, Emily has nominated the 400m, while she will also be a member of 4x400m relay team.

In another sporting accolade, Emily has just been awarded South Bendigo Athletics Club’s most outstanding achievement for the 2013-14 track and field season, the Raymond C. Foley Most Outstanding Achievement award.
