Scott Thomson has made the jump from New Zealand champion to Oceania champion, literally. The 19-year-old triple-jumper from Whitby was one of just 12 Kiwi athletes that attended the Oceania Regional Championships, held from June 21 to 23 in Samoa. He blitzed the field to take home the gold medal, although his win- ning distance of 14.39 meters was well down on his personal best of 14.72m. I was coming out of a New Zea- land winter and it was hot in Samoa, not humid but still 30 degrees. It was my first overseas competition, so a new experience for me, and I was super stoked to win. What made his achievement more special was he did it on his birthday. The 2010 national secondary schools champion came second at the national champs in Dunedin earlier this year and is focused on taking over the number one spot. His architecture studies in his first year at Victoria University test his time management skills, but the A-grade student would dearly love to represent his country at Commonwealth Games or Olympic level. I m getting there but there s a long way to go -- you re probably looking at 17 metres as the mark I have to get to. I ll keep pushing the boundaries though, training hard and what I need is more com- petition like at the Oceania level. One of the difficult aspects of being a senior triple-jumper these days is not having the high num- ber of secondary school events he could attend in his Aotea College days. This winter will see Thom- son doing a lot of running, fitness work and weight training as he builds towards the new season. At the height of summer, he will be training six days a week and competing both days in the week- end. Thomson is also a keen high- jumper, holding the Aotea College record, but triple-jump will always take precedence. The Mana Athletics Club mem- ber has been doing athletics since he was five but only triple- jumping touch, volleyball and cricket since he was 12. The event is a family affair for the Thomsons, with dad Richard Scott s coach, while sister Anna also competes. Muddy work: Members of the Alumni XV pose for the obligatory after-match (and before shower) photograph -- there were some weary bodies at this point, who gave it their all in difficult conditions. Photo courtesy Aotea College Sportacular success Aotea College s sportacular was absolutely a success and there are already plans in the work for a summer edition, says organiser Paul Latham. Despite cold, wintry conditions and fields that quickly churned up on June 29, the spirit amongst competitors was plain to see and all matches attracted high numbers of spectators. For the record, Aotea College was victorious in the netball (39-23), basketball (78-75), rugby (26-24) but the First XI were soundly beaten 4-1. The football boys came back and said we were taught a lesson , Latham says. Along with many old boys and girls participating in all sports, Pero Cameron was a surprise guest at the basketball match. The oldest competitor was Manu Christie (in the rugby) who left Aotea in 1985. There was plenty of banter on the field and at the after-match function. We had a great atmosphere, a positive vibe and everyone gave a good account of themselves out there. It was a day to remember, a real opportunity for people to con- nect and there was certainly enough to encourage me that this sort of event works for our school community. We ve started some- thing, it s on a roll. Latham says $30,000 was raised for resurfacing courts and lights. Touch, volleyball and cricket are possible if the summer event goes ahead.
