Kyabram’s Carlie Whitford has continued her impressive run of performances after winning 10 medals at the Victorian Country Athletics Championships.
Carlie competed in nine individual and three relay events at the championships at Ballarat over the Australia Day long weekend.
The competition meant she had to miss collecting her Kyabram Young Sportsperson of the Year award during the celebrations at Memorial Gardens on Australia Day.
She showed her versatility by winning medals across a range of events including hurdles, long jump, triple jump and high jump as well as sprint relays.
Her medal haul included gold in the under-20 long jump (5.18
She also ran legs in three relay teams that won gold, silver and bronze medals respectively.
Carlie said it was a fairly intense competition across the three days, with heats to contend with in the sprints on top of the challenges of different field events.
‘‘It was tough and I was pretty sore at the end of it,’’ she said.
‘‘I like doing multi-events as there doesn’t feel as much pressure then compared to if you are only in one event.’’
She was still able to take bronze in the javelin that bodes well for future competitions, despite not focusing too much on throwing events this season.
Her next major competition is likely to be Victorian Multi-Event Championships in Melbourne, which start on February 28.
She may compete in this year’s National Championships, which are also in Melbourne, but is not sure yet whether she will take part.
