What a Difference a Year Makes

| Posted inWeekly Blog

Chanel Gomes continues to go from strength to strength. 
Recently Chanel was awarded the prestigious Australian Institute of Sport Gweneth Benzie Award (information in a previous blog).  Then came the Under 21 National Championships in September where Chanel shared the Most Valuable Player of the Championships award with fellow AIS scholarship holder April Letton.  Chanel was named in the Australian Under 21 squad which was announced at the end of the Championships and last week was also announced in the Australian FastNet Team to go to the UK in November.
All this in one year.  Amazing!!  Knowing Chanel this wouldn’t have come easy.  There would be many hours of training that has gone into these achievements.  Chanel has a great work ethic and trains exceptionally hard in every session.
All her team mates back home are enormously proud of her and if this is what she has achieved in one year at the AIS can’t wait till next year. Go Girl!!
