Etienne Rousseau of Year 10 has been included in the inaugural ‘All Australian Junior Athletics’ Team, which is listed in this year’s Athletics Australia’s publication Australian Athlete. Etienne is in the team for both Discus and Shot Put in Under 16s.
Athletics Australia ranks him number one in Shot Put and Discus, second in Javelin and third in Hammer for boys under 16 in Australia. He is currently training as part of the Western Australian Institute of Sport’s (WAIS) Talent Target Programme.
Etienne broke three West Australian records this year and was crowned Australian Champion in Shot Put and Discus for boys under 16.
It was three years ago at the College Athletics Carnival that Etienne tried out the throwing events. With the support of Mr Paul Whitby of the Phys Ed department, he realised that this was the sport that he wanted to pursue.
Etienne is grateful for all the support he is receiving and for the talent that God has given him.
