"It was amazing. I couldn't believe it at the start," said Alice Kingston. But it didn’t take long for the reality of winning the&nbsp;Youth Goalball World Championships&nbsp;to sink in&nbsp;for the year 11 student at Lithgow High School. Kingston created history with the Australian under 19s women’s goalball team,&nbsp;the Aussie Glow,&nbsp;as the first Australian team to win a gold medal at any level of international competition. The tournament took place in&nbsp;Budapest, Hungary from June 30 to July 9.&nbsp; The Aussie Glow defeated strong favourites Russia 9-6 in the final to take out the title. Australia were defeated heavily by Russia in their pool game 12-2 but had the last laugh in the most important game of the competition. "To beat them in the final was unbelievable," Kingston said. This was Russia’s first ever defeat at a women’s under 19 world championship. The Aussie Glow&nbsp;also recorded strong wins over Spain, Germany, USA, Korea and Brazil throughout&nbsp;the competition. At&nbsp;16 years old Kingston was the&nbsp;youngest player in the Australian side. Goalball is a team sport designed specifically for blind athletes where players attempt to&nbsp;throw a ball containing several bells into the opposing goal. Kingston has been playing the goalball&nbsp;for four years&nbsp;after discovering the sport at an albinism conference. "I tried it out and really loved it," she said. Her mother Carolyn said&nbsp;Alice was&nbsp;quite athletic but her vision had&nbsp;held her back from&nbsp;other sports in the past. Kingston has 6/60 vision, meaning she is considered to be legally blind. However all goalballers are required to wear goggles to make sure their vision is blocked out completely. The Kanimbla Valley local hopes to represent Australia at the Paralympics in the future. Kingston’s next assignment will be the Australian Goalball Championships in Melbourne in October where she will captain the NSW youth side. She has&nbsp;previously played at three national championships coming away with two silver medals&nbsp;and a bronze Kingston thanked her relatives for all their support helping and particularly her aunt&nbsp;and cousin,&nbsp;Deb and Kate, for making the trip to Hungary to watch all her&nbsp;games.
