On receiving her scholarship, 17-year-old multi-sport athlete Jasmine Rayward said: “It’s amazing to be supported in my sporting journey. I feel like I’m actually an athlete, rather than just a recreational participant, and I really appreciate having all my training and achievements acknowledged by the Sport Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship program.”

Sport Australia Hall of Fame Chief Executive Officer, Adrianne Sarkozy, said: “The Scholarship and Mentoring Program is truly unique. We are so grateful to be able to provide, for the third year in a row, 32 scholarships that not only receive financial support but exclusive online meetings with Sport Australia Hall of Fame members as guest speakers.

“We received over two hundred applicants from an array of sports, Olympic, para and professional, along with new sports that have never been a part of the program, such as badminton. This is a testament to the popularity and importance of the program. We welcome all 32 athletes into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame family, and I am sure they will find support, guidance, and enjoy the opportunities that come from aligning with us.”
