Ben Schmidtchen

2015 Australian Under 16’s Boys Triple Jump Champion

St Columban’s College student Ben Schmidtchen has just been named the 2015 Australian Under 16’s Boys Triple Jump Champion!
While participating in the Joanna Stone Shield, Ben’s mother Sheryl said “Ben pulled out an amazing jump of 14.44m smashing the 21 year old State record of 14.21m in the Under 16 Men’s age group!”.  Well done Ben.
Ben also recently competed at the Little Athletics State relay championships at QSAC.  As  part of the Deception Bay team, Ben won Gold in four events.  The Under 16 boys 4 x 100m relay team also broke the State record!
Congratulations Ben.
