Balancing life as an elite sportsperson as well as completing your final year of school is already hard enough, and for Victorian Institute of Sport scholarship holder Kipp Smith, a global pandemic made things even more challenging.
But, with the help of the Victorian Institute of Sport’s Performance Services, Smith was able to complete his VCE studies at Wesley College and continue training for gymnastics.
He has since recently been accepted and commenced his Bachelor’s degree of Engineering and Science, as he continues his quest to one day compete for Australia at the Olympic Games.
