NSWIS trio heading to Russia

Three NSWIS athletes have been selected on the Australian team to contest the 2013 World University Games in Russia.

Following the recent Australian swimming championships, NSWIS athletes Andrew Abood, Daniel Arnamnart and Melissa Mitchell secured selection on the 25-strong team.
Arnamnart headlines selections having represented Australia at the 2012 London Olympic Games, with Abood being selected after strong performances as part of the recently established NSWIS/Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness Program of Excellence.
NSWIS/SUSF Program of Excellence head coach Grant Stoelwinder will lead the team to Russia as head coach, with NSWIS/SUSF senior coach Scott Talbot named as an assistant coach for the Australian team.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
