Local athletes off to Canada

Loose change donated by the patrons of the Great Western Hotel has helped raise $2,446.70 for Cobar High School athletes Hannah Carroll and Ben Griffiths to travel to Canada to compete in Athletics. Pictured with their personal trainer Khan Fugar, who has been helping them to physically and mentally prepare for their events, Hannah will try her hand at Shotput, Discus, Javelin and Hammer Throwing while Ben will be competing in 100m and 200m sprints, Long Jump and Triple Jump. The pair jetted off to Canada earlier this week. ▪ Photo contributed
