Talented Athlete Program hosts Lauren Wells
Posted on 05 Nov 2015
As part of the Talented Athlete Program, MCSS invited students and parents to a seminar for developing athletes. We were lucky enough to have 4 highly experienced athletes, coaches and trainers to relate their experiences to the audience.
Lauren Wells (nee Boden), an Olympian and Australian 400m hurdles champion, spoke of her pathway to the top, her challenges and the support which keeps her going.
Heath Wells, a former Australian Softball representative and ex-student, spoke of his early rise to the top of his sport while completing his Year 12 Certificate at Copland.
We also heard professional rugby coach and former AIS Strength and Conditioning coach, Craig Robberds. Craig discussed starting a strength and conditioning program and tailoring the program to the individual and their sport. Sports Trainer, Goodrun, discussed common medical conditions and causes, how to prevent them and returning to full strength.
The night was well received by all and a great opportunity to meet a hero.
