Sailors with disABILITIES

2012 Sports Awards

In December the NSW Sports Federation awarded the 2012 Sports Awards.

Dan Fitzgibbon & Liesl Tesch were nominated in the Team of the Year with a Disability category.  Dan & Liesl were against teams from Football, Wheelchair Basketball and Golf.

Daniel and Liesl teamed up in the two-person keelboat SKUD 18 in January 2011. This Team finished on the podium in every regatta contested and won Australia’s first Paralympic Games Gold medal in the SKUD 18 class. The pair led the Paralympic Games regatta, finishing in the top two in all but one race.

SWD sincerely congratulate Dan and Liesl for taking out the 2012 Sports Awards - Team of the Year with a Disability.
