Sally Pearson is one of Australia’s greatest Olympians and is the fifth fastest 100m hurdler in history.
At the 2012 London Olympic Games Sally became the 10th female Australian track athlete to win a gold medal, smashing the Olympic record in the process.
Sally has been excelling in athletics since she was 12, and since then she has participated in multiple sporting events across the world, including the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, the World Championships in Osaka, Japan and Berlin, Germany, as well as the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in which Sally claimed a silver medal. In 2011 Sally was named the IAAF Female Athlete of the Year!
In 2014 Sally was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for her contribution to sport as a Gold Medallist at the London Olympic Games – an incredible honour for any Australian to receive.
Off track, Sally is a huge lover of animals and has two Golden Retrievers, Oscar and Toby.
Sally joined Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation as an Ambassador in 2011 after volunteering one day a week at the Wildlife Hospital, where she assisted the staff in looking after sick and injured wildlife patients. Sally is passionate about the protection and preservation of Australia’s wildlife and we are thrilled to have her as an Ambassador.
Casey’s music has made an impact around the world. He has had number one hits in Europe, written songs in America, and appeared in the final series of the TV show Australian Idol. Casey has also played alongside many international stars including both Mariah Carey, Eskimo Joe and Bryan Adams.
Family and community are important to Casey. He started his singing career in his home state of Tasmania, before relocating to the Gold Coast, which he now calls home.
At the start of 2011, his defiant ‘Never Break You’ became an anthem after the devastating Queensland floods and Cyclone Yasi. The song soared to number one on the AIR charts, Top 10 on the mainstream iTunes charts and number six on ARIA’s Australian Artists Singles chart, with Casey donating all proceeds to the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal.
Casey continues to dominate the Australian music festival circuit and with more major festivals in the pipeline for 2015/16 sees him as one of Australia’s premier performers with a career truly on the rise.
