Weekly Wrap: Winter Induction, World Champion and X Games Gold

Posted on July 25, 2022 by

From Jindabyne to Oregeon, it was a sensational week for NSWIS athletes. Olympic medallists and future stars gathered in Jindabyne for the annual winter induction ceremony, while across the globe in Oregon, Eleanor Patterson was crowned world champion in high jump.

Winter Athletes Welcomed to NSWIS

Olympic medallists Jakara Anthony, Tess Coady and Ben Tudhope led the celebrations at the NSWIS  annual winter induction ceremony on Friday night.

More than 30 of the nation’s best ski and snowboard athletes gathered in Jindabyne for the prestigious event, which welcomed returning scholarship holders as well as new scholarship athletes to high performance.

Congratulations World Champion Eleanor

NSWIS high jumper Eleanor Patterson was crowned world champion in Oregon, USA. 

Eleanor soared to victory in the women’s high jump final on Day 5 of the World Athletics Championships, delivering a sensational performance that has seen her become the first Australian women’s high jump gold medallist and only the 10th Australian track and field athlete to claim a world title. 

The 26-year-old recorded a new personal best of 2.02m, equalling Nicola Olyslager’s Oceania and Australian record, but what was most impressive was her comeback after finding herself knocking on the door of elimination from competition.
