Rachel Bardney, one of our newest Heartland Motors Lone Star athletes started little athletics at just 3 years old and hasn’t looked back.

This year, Rachel was selected to represent the NSW Little Athletics Team to compete at the Australian Little Athletics Championships held in Hobart and was voted to be the NSW Female Team Captain.

Rachel performed admirably and came away from the competition with 2 National Titles, 1 in the Shot Put with a personal best and the other in the Discus with a season best performance. She also threw a personal best in the Javelin to win Silver and ran well in the Medley Relay to win Silver with her teammates.

Rachel currently holds numerous records for Shot Put, Discus and Javelin including some at State and National level. At the moment, she is training hard and looks forward to her next major event which is the Australian All Schools Track & Field Championships being held in Perth.

Welcome to the Academy Rachel, we can’t wait to see where the next year takes you!
