To be coached by an Olympian is something any aspiring athlete might dream of, but that dream recently became a reality for over 300 primary students from regional Victoria.
The future of Olympic sport in NSW looks safe with ten junior athletes being awarded NSW Olympic Council grants at the Annual General Meeting last night.

Seventeen years to the day since Brazil beat Australia 2-1 at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, the Matildas have returned the favour in Newcastle with a 3-2 win.
Emily Van Egmond says the Matildas are relishing the opportunity to showcase their ‘exciting’ brand of football in front of some bumper crowds on home soil.
Coach Alen Stajcic has declared Matildas Sam Kerr, Lisa De Vanna and Caitlin Foord the most forbidding attacking trio in women's world soccer.
