Telecom Extends Support For Evers-Swindells

Telecom Extends Support For Evers-Swindells

Georgina and Caroline Evers-Swindell and Telecom, today announced their intention to extend their relationship to well beyond the Games in 2008.

Telecom, the longest sponsor of the sisters, has sponsored the Evers-Swindells since 2001 when they began their golden run of international successes in the women’s double sculls, including back-to-back World Championships in 2002 and 2003 and gold in Athens in 2004.

Telecom Chief Executive Theresa Gattung said Telecom’s continuing support reflected Georgina and Caroline’s commitment to excellence both on and off the water.

“We’ve backed the girls since the start and have been truly inspired by their competitive successes over the last four years. They’re great examples of young New Zealanders who can go right to the top through discipline, dedication and sheer hard work.

“They’re also fantastic role models for individuals and businesses. Hopefully our support will play a small part in helping them continue their success right through the next four years,” she said.

Georgina and Caroline are now in intensive training for the 2005 FISA BearingPoint World Championships in Japan from August 28-September 4.
