Back to my Primary School

Last week as apart of the VIS ambassadors program, I returned to Middle Park Primary in Melbourne, my old school. Since I left Middle Park over 16 years ago now, things have changed a little as you can imagine! One thing remained; the enthusiasm kids have at that age for sport.

I brought with me some 2010 Olympic uniform jackets for the kids to try on, showed some videos and talked about what its like to be an elite athlete competing for Australia. I had a great time meeting a lively group of students who were fascinated by the sport of ski cross. Hopefully in a few years some of these kids will have the opportunity to represent Australia in a sport that they love.
