Well done Deanna

Well done Deanna Image

Local Olympian Deanna Lockett has achieved a top-10 finish at her first Olympic games.
The 18 year-old short-track speed-skater, who lives in Docklands and trains at the Icehouse, placed ninth in the 1000-metre event, edged out by just a fraction of a second from making the semi-finals.
Despite not making the semi-final, Ms Lockett did set a new personal best in the quarter-finals, with a new fastest time of 1 minute and 29 seconds.
“It was a clean, fast race,” Ms Lockett said. “I think if there was one less person in the race I could have made it.”
“I’m really happy with that race. It’s good to get a good, fast race in to get the whole Games experience.”
Ms Lockett also finished 26th overall in the 1500 metre event.
Pierre Boda, who also trains at the Icehouse, finished 30th overall in the men’s 500 metre short-track speed skating.
