Aimee Lindsay, 13, died at school after an athletics training earlier this week. She collapsed in front of other students. She was in the 8th year at Kamo Intermediate School.
The school released a statement saying that it has been found Aimee had an undiagnosed medical condition.
Lindsay was a very talented girl. At 10 years old, she was selected for the Northland under-12 Girls Weir Rose Bowl tournament team in 2016, which was very rare for someone of her age. Earlier this year she was called for the NFF Northern Lights under-14 girls’ futsal team that finished third at the Futsal Youth National Championships in Wellington. She also took part of the wider training squad for the NFF Northern Lights under-14 girls’ football team preparing for their national age-group tournament in Wellington in December.
