Every now and then as a coach and mentor, you meet a person who displays a certain level of natural ability and potential athleticism in a chosen sport or endevour. And you look at this person and wonder "If I could nurture this person, if I could guide, coach and mold this young person, give them the tools knowing they have the drive and enthusiasm, how far would they actually go in their chosen sport ???
I'm sure each and everyone who meets Belle agrees that she shows a level of maturity way beyond her years and so it's easy to forget that this teenager is only 15 years old! A testament to her awesome parents in Pete and Kylie Harwood.
Belle is a very passionate and enthusiastic young person who puts her heart and soul into all that she takes on. And this shines out in all that she does, be it her music, her artistic drawings or in her sport of CrossFit!
Belles growth in the sport of CrossFit has been nothing short of amazing. She first stepped foot inside the Anarchy Box as part of the Crusoe College Match Fit program run by her Teacher Kane Cook during the middle of last year. And from day one she showed a raw untapped potential and level of energy and drive that I knew could be taken much further.
She competed in her first CrossFit partner comp just recently and proved she has the heart to match her enthusiasm.
Congratulations Belle you are an inspiration to many of us and will continue to be for many years to come!
