Nicole Kay says she’s over the moon about her 100m and 200m
sprint wins at the Australian All School Athletic Championships.


Nicole a teen athletics sensation

ORGANISERS of the Australian All Schools Athletics Championships would do well to revisit the rule books after the all-conquering performance of Sunshine Coast speedster Nicole Kay.

Thirteen-year-old Kay scored emphatic victories in the under-14 100m and 200m finals at the University of Queensland on the weekend although her haul could have been greater had she been allowed to take on a bigger work load.

Kay, from Buderim, qualified for the 400m after winning the Queensland schools crown earlier in the year but Athletics Australia rules restrict young athletes to two races at the national championships.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the Chancellor State College student's performance was the fact she only dabbles in track running at school level and as a part of her beach running program with Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club.

Her Mooloolaba coach Peter Roodveldt was in little doubt as to how she would have fared had she been able to take the line in the 400m.

"She would have won it," he said.

She crossed the line in 25.25 in the 200m - a half second victory over Victoria's Sarah Billings - and 12.51 in the 100m, 0.22 seconds in front of fellow Queenslander Jacinta Beecher.

Roodveldt said Kay's performance had caught the eye Australian Institute of Sport coaches.

He described Kay as one of the most ferocious and mentally tough competitors he had ever seen.

Roodveldt said it remained to be seen whether she could make the transition from surf life saving specialist to athletics although she had been told she had the makings of an Olympian.

"I guess it all depends on the circumstances in the long term," he said.
