Pierre de Coubertin Award

On Sunday 16 June, Jordan Ziebell (12S) and Lucas Athanassiou (12A) attended the Australian Olympic Committee’s Pierre de Coubertin Awards at the MCG. Having set a new ACC Athletics record in the 110m Hurdles, Jordan received the Pierre de Coubertin award for outstanding performance in an Olympic Sport, while Lucas received the Olympic Youth Academy certificate on behalf of Salesian College’s elite sport performers. The day started with the award ceremonies and was followed by photos with Olympic athletes. Throughout the day Jordan and Lucas participated in several activities with Olympic athletes such as Nicole Livingstone, Steve Moneghetti, Jarred Talent and Claire Talent. The boys learned about athlete performance and Olympic history, as well as a deeper understanding of what actually happens behind the scenes at the Olympic Games.

On behalf of the Salesian College Chadstone community, congratulations Jordan and Lucas.
