Old Boys Thomas (Tom) Gibson (’00) and Tristan Thomas (’04) have both been officially confirmed as members of the Australian Olympic team heading to this year’s London Olympics. Tom has secured a spot on the Australian Rowing Team after he and New South Welshman, Rod Chisholm finished second in the lightweight Double Sculls at a recent Olympic qualification meet in Switzerland. It will be Tom’s second Olympic campaign.

Tristan will represent the country in Athletics after running an Olympic qualifying time of 49.39sec in the 400 metre hurdle event at recent grand prix meet also held in Switzerland. Tristan’s achievement comes despite multiple injuries over the past three years. We wish them both the best of luck.
