Two Gold Coast Academy of Sport athletes, Roman Hoffman and Rebecca Tickner will have the opportunity to hone their skills on and off the field after being appointed Greater Building Society Ambassadors. Our Nerang Branch Manager Rosy Jansen asked them a few questions to get to know them better.
I had the privilege of meeting the two Gold Coast Academy of Sport athletes appointed this month as 2012/13 Greater Building Society Gold Coast Ambassadors.
You can read more about their appointment on our news page. Meeting these two athletes, and the other Academy athletes we meet when we run our financial fitness seminars, leaves me smiling in the knowledge that we have many talented and wonderful young people in our region.
I asked the two impressive athletes a few questions about themselves and their goals. The Greater is very proud to be supporting their development and to have them represent The Greater. Our support for the Gold Coast Academy of Sport is another way we aim to make life greater for people on the Gold Coast.
