Wendy Hickman – our Sportsperson of the Year

WELL-known Macquarie Plains resident Wendy Hickman is the Derwent Valley’s Australia Day Sportsperson of the Year Award winner for 2010.

Wendy was honoured in particular for her selection to represent Australia at the 2009 World Masters Games in Sydney, where she won three gold medals in badminton. Wendy had also performed well at previous games.

Wendy is a trained and accredited active-after-school sports leader at Glenora District High School, where she delivers sports programs to primary school-aged children in an area where there is little opportunity for organised children’s sports. She is also a member of the school’s early years team, encouraging young families and parents to be more physically and socially active in their community.
