We love it when you tag us in your medal photos and each month we choose our favourite pic to showcase as our 'Medals of The Month'.
Behind every medal and every trophy is a tale of human triumph that should be celebrated!
This month, our favourite photo we received was from 10 year old swimmer and all-round champion, Isabel Joffe!
Isabel took some time out her busy schedule and shared her story with us...
"My name is Isabel Joffe and I am 10 years old. I have been swimming since I was about 7 years old and began competing at swimming carnivals at about 8.
I love it, even getting up at 4.45am in the mornings when my Dad takes me to training! I do other team sports like softball and netball which I enjoy because being on a team means trusting each other and being like a family.
It’s very special to share the times training and competing with my coaches, my friends and family who support me no matter what. They encourage me to keep doing my best.
My Mum and Dad will travel so I can compete which I love because it means we get to holiday together as a family at the same time. This year I have been to Maryborough for Qld State Softball and as far away as Bundaberg for swimming. I stayed in camp with my softball teammates for those few days and it was some of the most fun I have ever had.
My Mum bought me a Medal Display to display my medals and trophies properly and then needed to keep buying more!
Doing these sports keeps me active and happy and helps give me a healthy and strong body. And I have learnt how important friendship and support really is.
Thank you for letting me share my story.
- Isabel, the pleasure is all ours! You are absolutely kicking goals and long may your successes continue!
Our mission is to help celebrate wins and inspire many more, by hanging medals properly.
