MORTGAGE broker Brad Scott has already won a bronze medal for his international sporting efforts, but that's only made him hungrier to win as he trains for the 2016 Paralympics.
SHE’S the president of the Yokine Archery Club and has competed as a member of the State Archery Team, now Carlisle resident Courtney Cowling can add a bronze medal to her list of achievements.
Cowling competed at the 2015 National Archery Championships held in Morwell, Victoria after the Town of Victoria Park donated partial funds for travel and accommodation.
This year marks the second time Cowling has successfully had a grant from the Town, after representing the Archery Australia Team at the World Youth Archery Championships in China.
“Receiving this donation from the Town really helps to take some of the stress out of getting to these events, given that I am a student athlete competing in archery, it’s a fully self-funded sport,” Cowling said.
The Town’s Donation Program enables not-for-profit community groups, schools and individuals to make positive contribution to the community.
The Individual Donation awarded to Cowling is granted to individuals selected by a sporting body to represent the State at a national level and requires financial assistance to attend.
Town of Victoria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughn said he was proud the Town’s donation program contributed to Cowling’s success at the National Championships.
