Victorian Young Athlete of the Year
Isis Holt - Para Athletics
Isis Holt was extraordinary at the World Para Athletics Championships held in London on July 2017. In the T35 W 100m sprint, Isis ran it in 13.43 sec securing the gold medal and establishing a new world record. Similarly, in the T35 W 200m sprint, Isis also won the gold and set a new Championship Record. Isis is an incredibly focussed and resilient athlete. Despite being hospitalized only 3 weeks prior to competing in the Championships and being unable to train for 1 week in the lead up, Isis still won back to back World titles (100m and 200m), and broke her own WR in the process.
