Mr LYONS (Bass) (13:59): I rise to congratulate a young athlete from my electorate of Bass, Deanna Wadley. She has been nominated for the Examiner newspaper's Junior Sports Award in the female individual category. Deanna has been competing in athletics since she was five years old. She recently won gold in the long jump at the Australian Little Athletics Championships held in Sydney, a terrific accomplishment for a young Tasmanian athlete.

Deanna is a very modest young girl. She thinks her main attribute is being able to help out others. She is selfless and her willingness to help others goes a long way. She has been club captain of the Glen Dhu Little Athletics Club for the last four years and also girls captain of the Tasmanian Little Athletics Team. I congratulate Deanna on her recent success at the Australian Little Athletics Championships and wish her all the best for the future. I am sure she has a great career in athletics and as a leader in the Tasmanian community ahead of her.

The SPEAKER: Order! The time for members' statements has expired.
