Gary Haasbroek (YG 2016) Selected to Represent Australia
Congratulations to alumnus Gary Haasbroek (YG 2016) who has been selected to represent Australia at the Under 20 World Athletics Championships in Finland.
This is a fantastic opportunity that Gary has worked very hard to achieve. For the past two years, Gary has committed himself to training full time for the Decathlon, which involves countless gym, physio, recovery and training sessions each week for the ten Decathlon events, all while studying a Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bio-science at Latrobe University.
To compete at the championships Gary needs to pay a $4,000 team levy to cover his Australian uniform, food, accommodation, flights, transfers and competition entry.
