Will 13-year-old Taharna Reid obtain gold at the Olympics for Athletics one day and will 14-year-old Angela Muller represent Australia on the National Equestrian Team?
Only time will tell, but Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan is making sure that these 2 young Northern Beaches Sporting Champions are given every opportunity to follow their dreams.
At a Local Sporting Champions Award morning tea today, Mr Hogan presented the 2 local teenagers with a certificate in recognition of their achievements and confirmed their grants from the Local Sporting Champions program.
“Those who received the Awards have excelled themselves representing the Northern Beaches on the state stage,” he said.
The Local Sporting Champions program provides financial assistance to young people aged between 12 and 18 years to compete, coach or umpire in their chosen sport.
“The Northern Beaches has produced some outstanding sportspeople in the past, and it is important that we support the next crop of our local sporting talent,” Mr Hogan said.
In no particular order, our latest Northern Beaches Sporting Champions are:
- Angela Muller, 14yo, Pony Club State Championships
- Taharna Reid, 13yo, Little Athletics State Championships
