East Grampians Health Service is pleased to announce that world champion cyclist and Olympic Medalist Shane Kelly will be the guest speaker at this year’s 18th EGHS Annual General Meeting on the 26th November at the Ararat Performing Arts Centre.
From his silver medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games to multiple World Championships, Commonwealth Games gold, top world rankings and awards both in Australia and internationally, Shane has had an impressive career in competitive international cycling. At the conclusion of the Beijing Olympics in 2008, Shane Kelly announced his retirement from international competition.
Since that early success, Shane has gone on to become Australia’s most prolific medal winner in track cycling, including four gold medals at World Championships and Olympic bronze at both the Sydney 2000 and Atlanta 2004 Games.
Shane continued his success in the kilometre event with back-to-back Commonwealth Games gold in 1994 and 1998. At the Melbourne Commonwealth Games of 2006, he added a bronze to his trophy cabinet thanks to his contribution to the Teams Sprint.
East Grampians Health Service Chief Executive Mr. Nick Bush said he was delighted that Shane Kelly has accepted the invitation. It will be excellent for the community to listen to Shane and his experiences as an elite athlete as the community of Ararat focuses on improving its health service future. Shane was also born at the Ararat Hospital.
All welcome to attend and join Shane Kelly at this year’s East Grampians Health Services Annual General Meeting. For further information please contact Glenys Andrew on 5352 9303.
