The AVC Beach Volleyball Continental Club Final tournament was held in Cairns from the 20-26th of June – which saw athletes travel from eight countries to compete, and saw Cairns put out the red carpet to welcome these prime athletes.
Mrs Rinehart, volleyball and beach volleyball patron, also travelled to Cairns to warmly congratulate four more of our country’s finest lady athletes who qualified in this competition for the Rio Olympics, who included a young lady who was presented a gold medal by Mrs. Rinehart in Perth years ago.
Mrs. Rinehart was honoured to be asked to extend her patronage of volleyball and beach volleyball up to and including the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. This was announced on the Sunday night and was met with great enthusiasm from all who were there.
Mrs. Rinehart, Hancock Prospecting and the Georgina Hope Foundation are honoured to support the Australian teams as they represent our country, and extend their warmest congratulations to the four additional prime lady athletes who have recently qualified .
