The true spirit of competition!

The first Mini-Olympics held at Kilmore attracted 150 youthful competitors.

All competed in the full spirit of fun and fitness, the hallmarks of the Little Athletics movement.

The day at Assumption College were organised by Hume Little Athletics Centre in conjunction with Kilmore Lions Club, as an International Youth Year activity.

Federal Member for McEwen, Peter Cleeland, read a message from Prime Minister Bob Hawke to the young people of the Kilmore district.

Mr Cleeland, in company with Kilmore Shire President, Cr Robert Lowden, presented the various winners with their medals.

Centre officials also add their congratulations to all the competitors, irrespective of whether they won a medal or not; the overall participation ensured the day was extremely successful.

President of Little Aths Centre, Coral Jennion, presented special awards to two youngsters who showed true Ònever give up spiritÓ, namely Wayne Montgomery and Jessica Smith.

Special thanks was expressed to Assumption College on the manner in which the ground was prepared for events, and to Lions Club members who worked tirelessly all day.

President of the Lions, Bob Rowe, suggested all meet again next year to continue the spirit of community participation.

He acknowledged the efforts of all in working together for the happiness and better understanding that Youth Year conveys.

Due to the very wet conditions of the oval last Saturday Little Aths was converted into a fun and fitness day.

This Saturday is the Christmas break-up day.

A fun run and treasure hunt will be held at Assumption at 10am, followed by a surprise visitor expected.

Parents are advised to have all registration monies paid up on this day, and are reminded children who are competing at Shepparton will have to pay $1.50 as soon as possible.

Little Aths will resume on January 4 at 9am sharp, and children in each area should determine who is coaching them for Shepparton and make an effort to be present.
