This year at the Swimming Australia Awards, proudly presented by Hancock Prospecting, Mrs Gina Rinehart received the inaugural Lifetime Contribution Award.
The Lifetime Contribution Award is the highest honour one can receive for their enduring contribution to the sport and is presented at the sole discretion of the board of directors with a unanimous vote.
For nearly thirty years, Gina has been heavily involved in swimming and her generous contribution has allowed athletes to focus on their performance in the pool – they simply could not succeed without her.
High performance centres and programs around the country and sport science departments have all benefited from her generosity, while vital training camps are made possible thanks to the substantial role she plays.
Rarely missing a competition, one can always find Mrs Rinehart cheering on our athletes at the Olympics, World Championships, Commonwealth Games and all national competitions – in her busy schedule she always makes time, and athletes, coaches and their families love having her on the pool deck.
Hancock Prospecting is synonymous with swimming events and athletes – combining the best with the best.
