Picture: BRENT MCGILVARY ~PP158372. LAUREN MURADA Do you know an outstanding junior athlete? Fill out the nomination form on Page 62 WHETHER she's running around a tennis court or swimming laps in the pool, Nicole Chen is busy training every afternoon of the week. This week's Junior Sports Star nominee spends Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoon on the tennis court and Wednesday and Friday afternoon, and spends most mornings in the pool. With all this training, the 11-year-old's hard work has paid off and she'll be representing NSW in both tennis and swimming, although she doesn't like to pick favourites with her sports. ''It's fun swimming and I like seeing all my swimming friends,'' The Presbyterian Ladies College student said. ''Tennis is fun as well. I like to whack the ball and it keeps me fit.'' At the NSW Primary School Sport Association (PSSA) Tennis Championships her team was the champion area and she was selec- ted in the NSW team to compete at the national championships in September. Nicole had a great swimming season this year and after numer- ous swimming meets and lots of gold medals she was selected to represent NSW at the Pacific School Games. The games will be held in Canberra in November and will see her competing against the rest of Australia and other nations including the US, China and New Zealand. ''I don't like long car-trips but I'm looking forward to racing,'' she said. Her achievements however don't stop there. In July, Nicole will be running at the NSW PSSA Cross Country Carnival. ''I don't train for running, and I don't know how I'm doing it, but people say I'm fit and that's why I can run,'' she said.
