South West Sydney Academy of Sport (SWSAS) through its Wests Future Stars program has announced an athlete scholarship for Oran Park’s Amelia Morgan.
Amelia represents Campbelltown Collegians Athletics Club in both little and senior athletics, specialising in shotput, discus and hammer throw.
At only 13 years of age, Amelia has represented NSW on five occasions, including a 14-day tour of New Zealand.
Amelia had an amazing 2018, placing third in the under 14 hammer throw at the All School National Championships.
She also finished second at both the NSW All School Championships and Athletics Australia National Junior Championships, in the same event.
Things didn’t really slow down for her heading into 2019, finishing in second place in the under 15 NSW Junior Championships, as well as third in both the shotput and discus events at the Little Athletics Regional Championships.
The young star, pictured above, radiates passion for her sport: “I love doing what I do. When I go out onto the field to compete, I don’t think about winning, I think of how proud my family and friends are, watching me compete and achieve my best,’’ she says.
The SWSAS Wests Future Stars program will aid Amelia on her sporting journey, by providing her the opportunity to further develop her skills, as both an athlete and a future leader.
Amelia is very excited about her opportunity to join the academy, saying: “I’m so thankful to be selected to join the South West Sydney Academy of Sport.
“I can’t wait to start. I will do my absolute most to represent the academy, my country, state and club with the highest of integrity and respect.’’
Amelia is a welcome addition to the SWSAS Wests Future Stars Program – to keep up with her journey with SWSAS and the Wests Future Stars program follow the academy on social media (Facebook, Instagram) and checking out its website https://www.swsas.org.au/
