Meet Kim Mickle
Meet Kim Mickle - Commonwealth Games Javelin thrower and Australian Olympian 2012.
Kim finished top six at the 2011 IAAF world championships in Daegu (KOR) to qualify for the Australian Olympic Athletics Team (where she also competed with a fractured rib, thinking she had a back injury) . She won a silver medal in the javelin throw at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
Kim is from Western Australia - Mandurah/Rockingham Club - Perth born girl and I'm one of her sponsors for the 2012 Olympics.
Kim and I exchange phone calls and she is a really bright young athlete with her head screwed on the right way and her feet firmly planted on the ground.
Kim is a graduate of the Emerging Athlete Program of Athletics Australia and one of their High Performance athletes under Athletics Australia's Target Talent Program.
