Michael O’Mara, Vice President of NSW Division – Australian Commonwealth Games Association and representative of Wheelchair Sports NSW visited Batemans Bay this week to commence discussions about the The Bay Push Wheelchair Race event planned for later this year. He is pictured here with Geoff Fielding from The Bay Push at the meeting held in Corrigans Reserve Playground last Saturday.
Michael is looking at co-ordinating a feature wheelchair race as part of the Wheelchair Sport NSW and Athletics NSW competitive 2015 calendars.
The Bay Post, late last year reported on a visit by junior wheelchair competitor , Brad Pemberton who accompanied by his mum inspected the proposed route of the wheelchair race.
Both Brad’s and Michael’s favourable impressions with the suitability of the Bay for the event and their reports back to Wheelchair Sports NSW on the enthusiasm of The Bay Push personnel will go a long way to getting the event on track.
Michael O’Mara is also Accountant for Wheelchair Sports NSW and Director -Athletics NSW.
