Australia –BENDIGO athletes embraced the Olympic motto of “higher, faster, stronger” at the Victorian All Schools  – including high-flying siblings Jemuel and Blake Pryse and the equally talented Madeline Lawson – dominated their events at Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park.Representing Creek Street Secondary College, Jemuel soared to a new Bendigo under-14 residential record height of 3.10m, also eclipsing the Victorian country record of 3.01m that had stood since 1981.

The Bendigo Harriers athlete easily claimed the gold medal, raising the bar a full metre higher than his nearest rival.Brother Blake, from Girton Grammar, cleared 4.20m in the under-17 pole vault to win by 50cm and later raced to a silver medal in the 110m hurdles.Jumps specialist Lawson again proved her class, leaping 3.75m and taking out the women’s under-17 event by 1.05m – the biggest winning margin of all the pole vault divisions.
