Pierre de Coubertin Award

On Sunday 16 June, Jordan Ziebell (12S) Lucas Athanassiou (12A) attended the Australian Olympic Committee’s Pierre de Coubertin Awards at the MCG. Jordan received the Pierre de Coubertin award for outstanding performance in an Olympic Sport; having set a new ACC Athletics record in the 110m Hurdles and 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 of the recipients with Olympic athletes. Throughout the day Jordan and Lucas participated in several activities in conjunction with Olympic athletes such as Nicole Livingstone, Steve Moneghetti, Jarred Talent, Claire Talent. The boys developed a great understanding of what actually happens behind the scenes at the Olympic Games, athlete performance and history.
On behalf of the Salesian College Chadstone community, congratulations Jordan and Lucas.
