Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O'Brien has announced the latest round of successful applicants from the Coalition Government's popular Local Sporting Champions program.
 
"I'm pleased to congratulate the 32 sporting champions in Wide Bay who have been successful in obtaining funding to compete in their chosen events," Mr O'Brien said.
 
"Wide Bay's sporting champions come from all communities, they participate in a diverse range of sports, and they distinguish themselves in state, national and international competitions.  
 
"The cost of participating in these events can be quite high, especially where travel over great distances is required, so this funding will help to ease that pressure and assist them towards achieving their sporting goals."

 The Federal Government's Local Sporting Champions program supports young sportsmen and women between the ages of 12 and 18, by providing grants of $550 to $750 to help meet the costs of participating in sporting events, including travel, equipment, uniforms and accommodation.
 
 "These young sporting champions build on the Wide Bay region's reputation of producing outstanding athletes and they all do a fine job of representing their sport and their community through their sporting endeavours.  I congratulate them on their success and wish them well in their sporting pursuits," Mr O'Brien said.
 
"There were many applications for the Local Sporting Champions Program and only limited grants are available, but I am really impressed by the depth of talent, the level of commitment, and the ambition and pursuit of excellence, that the applicants demonstrated."
 
The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) is responsible for the management and coordination of the program, with grant recipients selected by a local panel.  Applications for the grants can be made at any time, through the Australian Sports Commission's website www.ausport.gov.au/champions.  For further information please contact Mr O'Brien's office on 1300 301 968.
