Keely Small – Athletics
Keely is one of the brightest stars in Australian Athletics. She made the Senior Team for this year’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, breaking the U/20 Australian 800m record at the Games. Keely has amazing potential and is likely to challenge for Australian Records over the 800m,1500m and Mile events in the coming years. While outside the nomination period, Keely recently led Australia’s contingent at the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, where she returned with gold. Keely balances a full time senior academic program as well as her representative and training loads, often having to travel interstate and internationally while keeping up with her studies.
