Strong bond: Jett Turner and Keellan Milinkovic at Sutherland Aquatic Centre. Picture: Jane DysonCRONULLA Water Polo Club players Jett Turner and Keellan Milinkovic have a special bond beyond their sporting endeavours.
Two angels will be watching from above as the teenagers play in August for the Australian Youth under-15s team tour of Belgrade.
The 10-nation, Memorial Darko Cukic Tournament, is on August 13-18.
Jett, 15, of Caringbah, and Keellan, 14, of Oyster Bay, have experienced sadness during the past year.
Jett’s father David died in 2013 and Keellan’s mother Taryn died in 2012.
Both boys’ parents would be proud to see how their sons have stayed positive to do so well.
“This is my first time in the Australian team,” Keellan said.
Jett said it would be his first selection for the national under-15s team to head overseas.
Both boys have been mates through Cronulla Water Polo Club since they started there at seven.
Keellan is a year 9 student at Kirrawee High School and Jett is in year 10 at Cronulla High School.
“We’re good mates through Cronulla Water Polo Club,” Jett said.
Both Dave Turner and Taryn Milinkovic will be cheering the boys in Belgrade.
