Popular Stories

AT just 18 years of age, Kilmore’s Mitchel Langborne has already recorded a series of impressive results in athletics both at a state level and Australia-wide.

Competing for Assumption College for the past few years, Langborne now attends Wesley College after receiving a scholarship and also competes for Keilor St Bernard’s Athletic Club, recording a number of wins in the 800m event.

Mother Rachel Langborne said she was proud of her son’s achievements and dedication to training and improving.

“He’s from a football family, but at one point he thought he’d give athletics a go and he’s been training a lot, we’ve seen so much improvement,” she said.

“He trains six days a week and travels to and from training in the city, he’s also managing his schoolwork at the same time so his dedication is really impressive.”

Langborne was named the under 20 800-metre state champion for the second consecutive year earlier this month, backing up previous championships in the under 17 and under 18 categories.

He was also the under 18 national champion in 2021, and secured second place in the under 20 1500-metre event at the Oceania Games last year.

Langborne is looking to travel to Brisbane later this month to compete in the Australian Open and Under 20 Track and Field Championships.
