Former student to compete at the Paris Olympics

13th June 2024

Former Mornington Secondary College student Ebony Lane and her team-mates have qualified for the Paris Olympic Games this year in the 4x100m relay team! Involved in athletics from age four, Ebony Lane was 19 when she to made it to Nationals. Just prior to the pandemic, aged 21, Ebony, who had made two Stawell Gift finals, was making progress in the sprints after turning her focus from gift running to the track. Then mid pandemic she made remarkable progress smashing her personal bests, highlighted by an outstanding 100m time of 11.39 in Brisbane. Over the next couple of years Ebony became a key member of the National 4x100m relay which would eventually in 2024 break the 24-year-old National record. They broke it twice, the second time in May at the World Relays as the team qualified for the Paris Olympics (Athletics Australia).

Ebony was a bright, bubbly and energetic student who contributed immensely to Mornington Secondary College’s Sport Program. Ebony was a pleasure to teach, she always had a smile on her face and was determined for success with her positive attitude.

Congratulations on all your success and we look forward to watching your journey ahead and cheering you on in your Olympic debut in Paris!👏
