$2 Million Boost For Specialist StonemasonsAugust 12, 2016
I congratulate the four members of the Hawkesbury community who have qualified to represent, and are competing for, Australia at the Rio Olympic Games and the upcoming Paralympic Games. Four-time World Equestrian Games athlete and Maraylya local, Stuart Tinney, is competing in his third Olympic Games riding his 17-year-old grey gelding Pluto Mio. I congratulate Stuart and the Men’s Eventing Team on winning the bronze medal overnight—an incredible achievement. Former Richmond High School Student and 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games victor, Daniel Lewis, made his Olympic debut this morning in boxing and won his first round preliminary fight—a split decision; a great decision. Alpine skier Nathan Chivers of Canoelands and swimmer Kara Leo of Grose Wold will compete in the Paralympic Games later in September. To quote former Olympic champion Jesse Owens, “We all have dreams, but in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.” I wish the very best of luck to our Hawkesbury representatives. I am very proud to be serving a community with such a high calibre of talent and commitment.
