She may have finished seventh - but she is our champion.

Bella Stewart returned home from Canberra yesterday afternoon after competing at the 2016 Australian All Schools Track and Field Championships.

The champs, which were contested from December 2-4, were held at the Australian Institute of Sport Track and Field Centre.

Bella, the daughter of Greg Stewart and Sonia Gordon, qualified for the championships when she won the gold medal at the NSW All Schools Track and Field Championships in Sydney in October.
