Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : February 4th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, February 5, 2009 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au vie for prestigious title Emilio McFarland (above left) has excelled in weightlifting while Liam Rowe (above right) is a senior AFL umpire. The 16-year-old Homebush Boys High student recently went to India where he represented Aust- ralia at the Commonwealth Youth Games, lifting a total of 173kg and ranking in 10th place. Although he has only been weightlifting for four years, Emilio has taken out various state and national titles and has a personal best of 80kg in the snatch and 93kg in the clean and jerk. But this isn't the only sport he excels in, he also plays rugby league and union. As hooker in both disciplines, he has played in representative teams for South Sydney Juniors in league and Briars Rugby in union. Last year he played for the North Western Zone at the NSW Combined High School champion- ships in rugby league, where the team was undefeated. LIAM ROWE AFL AFL umpire Liam Rowe is a champion whistleblower. The Haberfield teenager was already rated one of the best junior umpires in the state when he was invited to join the Sydney AFL umpires' seniors panel last year. Before that, his greatest achievement was officiating at the 2007 national under-15 carnival. Liam used to play AFL for Sydney City Juniors but gave it up in 2007 when he started taking his umpiring seriously. He said he's not intimidated by umpiring players older than him every weekend. ''As well as being really fit, a good umpire has to be confident and not be afraid to challenge people,'' he said. When he last spoke to the Inner- West Weekly, Liam was about to head off to a week-long develop- ment academy for the state's top junior umpires. KENNETH TO SWIMMING Ashbury swimmer Kenneth To has continued his winning streak in 2009. At last month's Australian Youth Olympics Festival he won gold medals in the 100m breastroke, 4x100m freestyle, 200m breastroke and 200m individual medley, and a silver medal in the 4x100m medley. Just two weeks before that the 16-year-old Trinity Grammar School student had taken a further six gold medals and broken Ian Thorpe's NSW record in the 200m individual medley at the State Age Championships. Kenneth trains about eight times a week, swimming about 8km each session -- or about 60km a week. His coach Matthew Brown de- scribed him as ''a bit of a freak, he can do everything''. Kenneth was the Inner-West Weekly 2007 Junior Sports Star. One finalist will be named the Inner-West Weekly Junior Sports Star of the year and another will take out our inaugural Young Achiever award. They will be announced at the Cumberland Courier Newspapers Junior Sports Star awards presen- tation at The Epping Club on February 25. The night will culminate with one of the Junior Sports Star winners from the group's 20 news- papers receiving the Cumberland Courier Medal. MASSIVE SAVINGS!!!
