Olympians Lauren Boden and Melissa Breen have been actively out and about the Canberra community promoting athletics since returning from the London Olympic Games.
Both Lauren and Melissa are proud products of ACT Little Athletics and Athletics ACT and take great pleasure in encouraging the next generation of athletes.
Today Lauren was at the ACT Little Athletics multi-event carnival where hundreds of kids lined up for their minute with her. She signed everything from shirts to shoes to hats and cards and many photos were taken by parents.
“Your my idol” was heard from one very excited kid.
Many of the athletes are already luck enough to have regular contact with Lauren and Melissa as part of FIT4FUN. Both girls are level 3 qualified coaches and run regular sessions during the week.
There are still spots available in the squads so be sure to sign up today.
