Julia, Lily and Luna
Korowa Anglican Girls’ student Lily Toussaint has received a Pierre de Coubertin Award for academic excellence, sporting prowess and exemplifying the Olympic values, in particular good sportsmanship. Lily, a Year 12 student at the girls' school, received the award on 23 June, International Olympic Day, at the MCG.
Lily has represented Korowa in a huge range of sports including on the School’s first Australian Rules Football team; and in Senior Basketball, Cross Country, Triathlon, Swimming and Track and Field. She holds a leadership position as the Jamieson House Captain.
Melbourne’s own Nicole Livingstone OAM emceed the awards ceremony, with Rio Gold medallist Catherine Skinner OAM presenting the awards.
More than 300 students from around Victoria attended an Olympic Academy preceding the Awards ceremony, including Lily, School Captain Luna Lethbridge and Akehurst House Captain Julia Crute. They had the chance to talk to present and past Olympians, learn about the a.s.p.i.r.e Olympic values and visit the National Sports Museum.
Lily has proven herself many times to be a fantastic role model both on and off the sporting field and we congratulate her on receiving this prestigious award.
