Lachlan sets winning times

YOUNG Ellenbrook athlete Lachlan Wight has had another outstanding season, winning six gold medals at the Kingsway Little Athletics Centre championships in the 100m, 200m, 70m, long jump, triple jump and high jump.

His father Jason Wight said he broke four centre records.

He broke a 32-year-old 100m record as well as high jump, long jump and triple jump records, which were all 11-year-old records.

The triple jump was an Australia record but not ratified as it wasn’t jumped at a state-run event.

He won the Sheryl Purcell male track award at the centre for the fourth straight year and also won the intermediate champion boy.

At his Ballajura club he was the intermediate champion boy.

In March the Ellenbrook Independent Primary School student competed at his first state championships and won five state titles – the 70m which was a new state record, 100m, 200m, long jump and triple jump in which he had also set a new state record for at the zones championships two weeks earlier.

He was also a member of the Kingsway U10 boys relay team which won gold medals in the 100m and 200m relays at the relay state championships which they have won for the past three years.
