Aussie Pride on show in Argentina
Well done to all who represented Australia at the recent ITF World Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
It is one of the toughest cauldrons of ITF competition with a packed stadium full of latino pride and agression. On the mats, we were super proud of the way the Aussie team showed their true spirit and had a red hot crack.
Fair to say all competitors performed very well, and most at or close to their best performance at this level of competition.
Five long days of competition tested the concentration and endurance of our athletes, but they all gave a good account of themselves.
The nature of sports is that it’s not always enough to get a medal, but we are proud to say we did come home with some.
Special Congratulations, of course, goes to our medal winners
- Lindy Crouch (2 x Gold Medals)
- Jodi Stanton (2 x Silver Medals)
- Lee Hermansson (1 x Silver Medal)
- Sasha Robertson (1 x Bronze Medal)
- Jackson Riordan (1 x Bronze Medal)
Well done to the coaches Phill Zdybel, Bronnie Keating and Rob Riordan. Your hard work and encouragement in preparing the athletes for their bouts was fantastic.
Thank you to all supporters and parents who came along to cheer on our team.
