Donation. David Gardiner’s trip to Ireland representing Australia in the International Tetrathlon next month has been made easier with financial assistance from a local politician.
Liberal Member for Braddon, Joan Rylah has personally donated $300 to Gardiner’s travel expenses to ease the financial pressures the 18-year-old faces in travelling overseas to compete.
“I hope that this opportunity will further David’s skill in the sport and fuel his drive to compete at the highest level,” Mrs Rylah said.
“I would like to wish David and the rest of the Australian team the best of luck in the competition.”
Tetrathlon is a sport which involves riding, shooting, swimming and running. The competition in Ireland will be Gardiner’s first time competing in the event at an international level.
In 2013, Gardiner was part of the winning Australian team at the Prince Philip Mounted Games in Canada.
