The National Athletic Championships which are held in early December showcase the athletic talents of our elite athletes across the country. For our Kimberley athletes who are selected to represent the Western Australian team, this is a huge step up the ladder in developing themselves as a professional athlete. Wyndham’s Mark Morgan became the first Kimberley athlete to be selected as captain of the state team participating at the Nationals.

Many of our Kimberley athletes who are selected to compete at this event have never competed at this level before, so it can be quite overwhelming for some but also a great experience that opens up the doors to many more great opportunities. However, with the fun and excitement of competing at this level, there also comes hard work and commitment. Athletes have to be determined to train regularly, eat nutrious food and be fit and healthy to continue to compete at a high level.
