Ambassador Caleb motivates at new Young Athletes program

By Gail de Raadt

Local Ambassador Caleb Smith was on hand today at the launch of the new Australian Young Athlete program to present ribbons for all attending children. This event was run on the first day of the Asia Pacific Games in Newcastle Australia. Ambassadors Caleb Smith and Mel Eustace were on hand to assist and share their experience with the participants and visitors. The project was supported by the superb Mattel volunteers who have been assisting at the trial Young Athlete Program in Victoria for two years. The launch was attended by over 100 students from local schools and parenting groups and visited by Minister Gabrielle Upton MP.
