Congratulations to our Sports & Team Boost Winners
The 2019 Sports & Team Boost Winners have been announced. Congratulations to Billie Russell, and our Team Boost Winners Jenaya & Phoebe. Watch their stories below!
Billie Russell - Speed Skating
At 10 years old and having only competed in Speed Skating for three years, Billie is her age group’s National Champion and holds 10 national records.
Her next step, with the help of the Sports Boost $20,000 grand prize, is travelling to Europe to train and compete with some of the best speed skaters in the world.
For Billie, the opportunity to race in Europe is especially important as it presents a new level of competition that isn’t available in Australia.
Phoebe Wills-Grace & Jenaya Massie - Sprint Kayaking
After training together for only four years, sprint kayak duo Jenaya and Phoebe have become an unstoppable force.The girls have recently represented Australia in both Poland and New Zealands they prepare for the upcoming international competitions.
For the team, winning the 2020 ICF Junior & U23 Canoe Sprint Championships is the next goal as they continue their journey towards 2024 Paris Olympic Qualification.
With the help of the Team Boost $20,000 grand prize, the team will be able to invest in their own competition boat and new training gear.
