Year 12 Berwick Campus cyclist Alana Field will represent Australia in the Junior World Track Championships in Switzerland, August 15-19.

A delighted Alana said she had worked hard for the honour of racing in the green and gold.

“It will definitely be a great experience and I look forward to racing and hopefully doing myself and Australia proud,” Alana said. She now has a busy schedule of five to six days of training each week, which she expects will intensify as the August event draws closer.

“At the moment the Melbourne indoor velodrome is closed for a couple months so I’m gaining strength through gym along with stationary bike sessions.”

Alana’s selection to represent Australia follows success earlier this year at the National Track Cycling Championships, where she won two gold medals, a silver and U19’s Champion of Champions title. She ultimately aims to represent Australia in the senior category.
