A Bacchus Marsh Grammar student is riding high, after earning a string of wins at the Australian Track Cycling National Championship last weekend.
Graeme Frislie was crowned the Men’s U19 ‘Champion of Champions’ in Brisbane over the weekend of 6-7 of April, following a win of two individual and two team gold medals.
Getting the gold isn’t anything out of the ordinary for the Year 12 student, who had already won the gold medal in the Omnium National Championship in October last year.
The 18-year-old is a FedUni WestVic Academy of Sport athlete, as well as a Victorian Institute of Sport scholarship holder.
FedUni WestVic Academy of Sport Executive Officer Corey Saitta said, “We are thrilled for Graeme and his family.”
“Graeme is a committed, disciplined and skilful athlete…despite his recent outstanding results, he remains humble, unassuming and determined to continue to improve,” said Mr Saitta.
Mr Fislie is headed to Germany in August to compete at the 2019 UCI Junior Track Cycling World Championships in August in Frankfurt.
