Today Elefeteria Loukeris ventured to Lakeside Stadium to participate in the SSV Track and Field Championships. She earned a place in the 10 year old girls 80m hurdle event after winning the District, Division and Regional Championships.
In the morning, Elefeteria participated in the heats and after a slow start, was able to cross the line fourth, which was enough to creep into an outside lane for the final, which was to be ran in the afternoon. After the experience of the morning's heat, she felt much more confident for the final. Elefeteria saved her best race for last, finishing in second place and receiving a silver medal for her efforts. That's correct, TPPS is home to the second fastest hurdler in Victoria! This is an amazing achievement, especially considering Elefeteria's lack of formal training in the event. She has shown the whole community that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
