Over 100 children in Australia have attended an athletics-based clinic to kick off the country’s IAAF Nestlé Healthy Active Kids’ Athletics. The programme aims to increase Australian children’s participation in track and field events. Champion athletes Sally Pearson (Qld), Natasha Hastings (USA), David Oliver (USA) and LaShawn Merritt (USA) encouraged the children to get active and experience the thrill of sporting competition.
Nestlé has been the main IAAF Kids Athletics worldwide sponsor since 2012. Programmes supporting children’s involvement in athletics are already active in more than 80 countries.
