Di’s name is synonymous with fitness and fun. She is the motivation behind many, including mothers with young children, people with disabilities and the older generation and works to meet their needs. With a zest for life, and a spring in her step, Di has competed in 21 Blackwood Marathons, winning many team events. When the local recreation centre closed their crèche, Di seized the opportunity to provide a crèche for local mums in her private fitness classes. Di truly captures the spirit of the Commonwealth Games, she is inspirational, positive, energetic, vibrant, fun and authentic.

Graeme has been involved with the Bridgetown Swimming Club for 19 years. In that time he has been Secretary, Recorder and for the last 15 years, volunteer coach. His own children left the club 12 years ago but despite this, he has continued to coach tirelessly each season. His devotion to the position sees him coaching at six o’clock in the morning in all weather in an outdoor centre up to three mornings a week followed by afternoon sessions. For two summers, he travelled three times per week to an away town to continue his coaching when the Bridgetown Pool was being rebuilt. In winter, he travels 30 kilometres each way to coach and all at no cost to the club. He has supported and inspired many young swimmers!
