There's a great story surrounding the entries of Solomon Puemorra and Deqwayne Puemorra from far away in Derby Western Australia, but another indigenous athlete having his first start in the Stawell Gift is Keanu Wighton.

Keanu was one of a group of lads who ventured over to Jamaica in January 2013 for a sprint camp organised by Hayden Knowles. Jordan Caldow and Tjimarri Sanderson-Milera were also part of the group.

I don't know what athletic events he's competed in lately. He has been playing Rugby League for the Condolbin Rams.

Below is an article in the local paper about the trip to Jamaica in 2013.

As fast as Bolt?

World-famous athlete Usain Bolt will be given a run for his money when two Condobolin lads train alongside his team.

Samuel Coe and Keanu Wighton of Condobolin are looking forward to attending an exclusive athletics training camp in Jamaica in January. JS

World-famous athlete Usain Bolt will be given a run for his money when two Condobolin lads train alongside his team.

The students from Condobolin High School were invited to attend an exclusive athletics training camp in Jamaica in January 2013.

Samuel Coe and Keanu Wighton – labelled ‘Condobolin’s fastest men’ by CHS PDHPE/Sport coordinator, Mr Simon Murphy – were invited to take part in the Competitive Edge training camp following a nation-wide search by Athletics Allstars CEO, Hayden Knowles.

Inspired by Usain Bolt’s visit to Australia in 2010, the camp will be hosted by Jamaican track and field Olympic team head coach Maurice Wilson at the world-class GC Foster College in the Caribbean.

“Both boys have excelled on the track this year, smashing a number of school records on their way to NSW state titles,” reported Simon.

“The boys have been selected based on their natural abilities and raw talent, which the program coordinator Hayden Knowles is keen to see as the boys train with Australia’s best young sprinters in Jamaica.”

In the wake of the London 2012 Olympics, and the resurgence of the popularity of track and field events after many seasons heralded swimming as the favoured spectator and competitor sport, Australia is already preparing for the Rio 2016 Olympics, which is where these boys could be headed if they continue to impress leading coaches in the field.

For these sprinters, this January camp is the beginning of a year-long quest to determine ‘the best of the best’.

Each athlete’s progress will be followed throughout the year by the team at Athletics Allstars, by assessing their physical and mental qualities to eventually determine the most promising candidate.

They will be awarded a scholarship and ongoing support to the Rio 2016 Olympics games, in the hope that an Australian man will place to run in the 100m finals.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said athlete Samuel Coe.

Keanu added, “It’s going to be so good for me and Sam to get out there and have a go.”

“[I’m] hoping this inspires younger kids in this town to follow their dreams like I have.”

With a focus on discovering the untapped skills of an indigenous athlete, Hayden Knowles said it was an email from CHS teacher Mr Murphy which prompted him to invited Samuel and Keanu along to the training camp.

“The email just showed so much confidence in these two boys,” Hayden said, impressed with the successes in athletics the boys have achieved, as noted by Mr Murphy.

“It was just after an article printed in a Sydney paper by Greg Inglis, encouraging indigenous boys,” Hayden explained.

“Greg Inglis has really changed their lives with this.”

Having heard of the support the two athletes have been receiving from the Condobolin community Hayden was overwhelmed by the impact he and Greg Inglis have had on the lives of these two boys.

This support includes the contribution of $1000 towards each athlete’s $8000 fee for the training camp, along with $10,000 contributed by Barrick Gold to be shared by the two runners, and monetary support of $2000 contributed by CHS Principal Mr Grahame Steigler-Peters.

“The boys are hoping to raise the remaining fees through a variety of community events,” said Mr Murphy.

Hayden was also proud of the positive impact they are having on the community, following an appearance at a Condobolin Public School assembly where Samuel and Keanu encouraged younger community members to take control and pursue their dreams.

Featured on ABC Local Radio, as well as Prime 7 News, these students are fast becoming local athletic celebrities, as well as amongst the wider community, and the pursuit of their dream is sure to be a story worth following.

“Donations from individuals, community groups and local businesses would be greatly appreciated and go straight to covering travel and training expenses for the boys.”
