Molesworth magic

THREE members of the New Norfolk Rowing Club are representing Australia at the Beijing Olympic Games and two of them are from Molesworth. In one swoop, Kate Hornsey and Anthony Edwards have doubled the Derwent Valley’s number of Olympians. The other NNRC member, Kerry Hore, lives at New Town.

Hornsey and family are long-term local residents and she is a former pupil of Molesworth Primary School, where the students will be following her progress with keen interest. Edwards is a three-time Olympian who moved to Molesworth several years ago when he and his wife relocated to Tasmania. Both are fortunate to have family members cheering them on in Beijing.

Our other Olympians are Kathy Foster who played in the Australian basketball team at the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984, and Dana Faletic who won bronze in the rowing at the Athens Games in 2004.
