Jimboomba Little Athletics

High Achievers

For a club from a smaller regional community, Jimboomba Little Athletics punches above its weight, with former members including Australian national champions, an Olympic medallist, a Paralympian and five World Junior Championship representatives.

Jimboomba’s most successful athlete to date is all-rounder Ashley Moloney who won multiple state medals during his time at Jimboomba as well as being selected on U15 and U17 representative teams. Ashley competed at the World U20 championships in Tampere, Finland, in 2018 where he won the decathlon with a world record score. Ashley also won the decathlon bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics in an Australian record.

Ashley’s fellow team mates at the 2018 U20 World Championships included Camryn Newton-Smith who represented Australia in the women’s heptathlon and Talosaga Kia who represented in discus.

Jimboomba LAC’s first representative at Junior World Championshoip level was Jessica Pickles in the 10k walk in Barcelona, Spain, 2012. Another former member, Nathan Wilkins, represented Australia at the 2016 U20 World Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland, where he competed in the hammer throw

Sam Schmidt, who holds Australian records for her category in discus, is our Paralympian. She competed in Tokyo in the T38 discus.

Another outstanding former members is Tianah List who holds numerous junior records in javelin and was the Australian national women’s javelin champion in 2016.

Tianah, Ashley, Camryn and Talosaga have also represented Australia at the Oceania Championships where they all won gold medals.

State Title Holders

Since the club was formed, more than 40 athletes have won individual state championship finals.

Nicola Daffey was the centre’s first ever state champion winning the U11 girls 800m in the inaugural 1997-98 season with a time of 2.38.9. Six years were to pass before another Jimboomba athlete won gold – Taneille Crase in the 2004 U9 60m hurdles.

Taneille defended her title the following year, also winning the U10 high jump and was joined by state champions Danielle Fisher and Arron Kirby both winning their respective U13 200m hurdles. Since then rarely has a year passed without Jimboomba athletes standing atop the podium.
