Hi, I've grown up on a Vegetable farm,and was a grower for 20 years with our family business. Now driving a concrete mixer.

We have young sport people without any help to get them to the top...."lets all help and make a, "Olympic fund".

We have the talent.... Aboriginal and migrants and city and country youth with natural ability, but because of their financial difficulty they often cannot support their children sporting needs.This is where this page will help these people. By grouping up with the right people, we can all help by sponsoring the sporting facilities which can help promote the help of these new young Australians.

Let get this page running, by sending this lens to your local MP. As a way of helping young people to access funds for travel on buses or trains to venues to train for an Olympic sport of there choice. To give the youth a way to communicate to others in the sport from past and present.If this could help many may'be a fund could be created to provide for training in low socio-economic areas of Australia.

Helping future Olympians for Rio 2016.....

Letter to a Young Future Olympian

With the London Games over, and the world looking towards Rio, what should future Olympians keep in mind? Steven Gluckstein, an Olympic trampolinist, offers words of advice.

Having Olympian forever on my resume just goes to show people my hard work and dedication and love for sport and athleticism. This is my title proving that I truly am a great athlete and that I have worked hard and sacrificed so much of my life to the sport.

The advice I can give to a first time Olympian is to soak it all in. It's going to be all over before you know it. If you want to go again, that's going to be another four years, so take it all in.

Stay as concentrated as you can on the competition without distracting yourself with the competition. Talk to other athletes. Really get the Olympic feel.

If you're a first time Olympian, make sure that you are going out and socializing with other athletes in the dining hall, in the lounge, and any opportunity you get.

Get tickets and go see other sports because when you compete in your sport, you see the same sport over and over and over again. If you're track and field, how often do you get to see gymnastics? If you're gymnastics, how often do you get to see diving? This is the only opportunity you get to have all other sports come together. I think it's really important that you go see other sports and also support your country.

A first time Olympian should not get overwhelmed with all the things to do before the competition. Chances are, it's an awesome city and there's so much to see, but be smart about your time. If you want to go sightseeing, do it after the competition. Manage your time wisely. You don't have to do it all in the few days leading up to the competition.

Hopefully you get the gold, and, if so, there's every reason to celebrate. You'll see a lot of Olympians play hard after the competition. They have a good time and definitely know how to celebrate.

Helping the Australian youth with their dreams....
