"It is an honour to be an ambassador for GreaterSport, I have seen firsthand the positive impact their campaigns and initiatives make on people's lives in our community. I truly believe in the power of sport to change people's lives, I have yet to meet somebody who has not had their lives enriched from their involvement in sport! Sport has given me some of the best experiences of my life, and it is my greatest privilege as an athlete to have the opportunity to inspire others, this is something I hope to be able to do through this partnership with Greater Sport."
