Mt Maria College Petrie student Riley Mann is training his way through 2022 as he prepares to compete in the 400m and 800m, and 400m hurdle and relay events at this year’s Virtus Oceania Asia (OA) Games in November 2022! 
OA Games 2022 is the inaugural event in the Virtus Asia and Oceania region for athletes with intellectual impairment. The Games invites 1000 plus athletes and officials from New Zealand, Asia, and the Pacific to compete against Australia’s best elite athletes. 
​Mt Maria College Principal Wayne Chapman said if Riley wasn’t already busy enough preparing for the OA Games and completing Year 12, he also featured in the OA Games promotional video. 
“Riley is truly an over achiever,” Mr Chapman said. 
“Riley is not only completing Year 12 this year and attending athletic training, he also recently featured as both the voice over and talent in this year’s OA Games promotional video. 
“Riley has never let anything get in the way of something he wants to achieve, and the Mt Maria community is so proud to see him represent our school community and Queensland on the world stage this November. 
“I would like to personally wish Riley all the best at the upcoming OA Games, and our school community can’t wait to cheer him on from the sidelines.”
