Little athletes, big hearts

ABOUT 300 young track and field athletes converged on Riverview Park, South Lismore, at the weekend for the Little Athletics Northern Rivers zone championships.

They came from 11 Little Athletics centres as far away as Nambucca Heads and including Lismore, Ballina, Richmond Valley and Evans Head.

Athletes who placed in the top three in individual events qualified directly for the 2012 Region 4 championships in Newcastle on the third weekend in February.
