Swimming Australia’s annual awards dinner was held October 27th in Melbourne.
Due to the date change of the annual awards night with long standing commitments elsewhere, Mrs. Rinehart was unable to attend the Swimming Australia awards, and so Dawn Fraser kindly read out Mrs. Rinehart’s welcome speech, which follows.
Dawn Fraser then presented on Mrs. Rinehart’s behalf Hancock Prospecting’s Swimmer’s Swimmer of the year, which was awarded to Emma McKeon and Jack McLoughlin, and also Hancock Prospecting Olympic Program Coach of the Year, which went to Simon Cusack.
Warmest congratulations to all award winners.
