Gold for Athan

Salesian College Chadstone’s very own Athan Dritsas was recently selected to represent Australia at the 2014 USA Karate Open and International Junior Cup held in Las Vegas over the Easter weekend.
Athan won Gold and is the USA Open Karate Champion for a second year in a row. Upon receiving his medal on the podium he was wrapped in the Australian flag.
Salesian College Chadstone, along with this family are extremely proud of Athan, his hard work and dedication to the sport he loves.
Prior to leaving for the USA, Athan competed in the 2014 Australian School and University Karate Championships where he won Gold representing Salesian College.
Dean was also selected as part of the Australian National team for the USA Open but had to withdraw at the last moment from competition due to an injury. We have no doubt that he will come back better than ever and hungry to have similar achievements again.
