At just 13, Emily Kos has represented state and country in two sports.
The soccer and futsal star from Kellyville Ridge has her eyes set on a future with the Matildas and a second season training with Football Australia’s Project 22.
In April, Kos represented Australia in Vietnam in 10 under-13 friendlies against soccer powerhouses China and Japan, among other Asian teams, winning seven and drawing one.
She also captained the winning NSW Metro 1 team in Canberra at the National Junior Championships.
In 2009, she represented Metropolitan West at the State Titles in Dubbo, and is doing so again this week.
In futsal she was part of the undefeated NSW team at the under-12 girls FFA Futsal National Championships in January.
Her achievements see her nominated for a Rouse Hill Times 2010 Junior Sports Star Award.
Kos said representing Australia was her biggest thrill so far.
“I’m going really well. I’m really happy with how I’m playing at the moment,” she said.
“Representing Australia is really nerve-racking but that helps me play my best. I’m really proud to represent my country.”
The Junior Sports Star Sport’s Award is sponsored by Rebel Sport, Nash Patel’s The Good Guys and Supa Centa Castle Hill.
