shanej2006 Archive

At the announcement ceremony of the TIS 2007 scholarship holders at Hobart’s Wrest Point Casino three orienteers were awarded scholarships. World Champion Hanny Allston and fellow WOC team member Grace Elson each received a level 1 elite scholarship and current Australian junior long distance and sprint distance champion Ryan Smyth received a level 2 elite scholarship.

Hanny was also named the TIS Athlete of the Year at a ceremony a few weeks ago in recognition of her gold medal winning performances at the Senior and Junior World Championships this year. Hanny spoke to the assembled audience yesterday outlining the benefits of the TIS scholarships for athletes and again proved to a superb ambassador for our sport.
