Congratulations to Sophie Quirk who recently received a Pierre de Coubertin Award.

Excerpt from the presentation – The award is an initiative of the Australian Olympic Committee. The award recognises your sporting achievements and the demonstration of those endeavors consistent with the aims of the Olympic movement. Through your participation in a range of sporting activities, you have made an exemplary effort to achieve your personal best and displayed qualities of fair play which have inspired the involvement of others.
