NARINGAL aerobics export Brenton Andreoli has his eyes firmly set on another world title.
The 19-year-old will travel to Adelaide today to contest the FISAF national championships in the hope of securing a place on the Australian team for the world championships in the Netherlands.
Andreoli is no stranger to the international stage, having won a gold medal on his debut at the world championships when he was 17.
That win saw him become the youngest world champion.
At last year’s titles on the Gold Coast he finished with a bronze medal in the senior male competition and a silver in the mixed pairs.
This weekend he will compete in the senior individual male and senior international trio, with Cameron Brown and Emily Daniels.
Brown and Daniels are from the Geelong area.
He earned his place at the national championships after finishing in second place for the individual male and first place for the trio at the Victorian championships in April.
He said his main aim for this weekend’s trip to Adelaide was to claim a place on the national team which will head to the Netherlands in October.
“That’s what I want and what I have been working towards,,” Andreoli said yesterday.
“I want to be back on top.”
“I’ve picked up medals at the two world championships I’ve been to but the gold felt the best.
“I want that again.”
Andreoli is studying forensic science at Deakin University in Geelong.
The teenager said he has been combining the workload from his course with a packed training schedule.
“It’s been a busy year,” he said. “I have 18 hours of uni a week, plus study time.
“I then have training 14 hours a week and then work part-time on top of that.
“At the moment, aerobics and uni is my life. But I don’t mind.
“I’m doing what I love,” he said.
