During the 2015-16 season opener at the Meadowglen Gift on Sunday (Nov 15), two extremely praiseworthy gentlemen received their Victorian Athletic League Life Membership badges.
Graeme Goldsworthy and John Holloway were awarded Life Membership to the Victorian Athletic League at the 2015 Annual General Meeting. Holloway and Goldsworthy were presented with their badges by VAL Vice President Todd Ireland after a speech recognising their extensive and all-embracing involvement in the sport.
Both former athletes were also trainers for many years, were involved with club committees, represented the Victorian Runners & Trainers & the VAL Board and have served as key VAL Officials. Graeme continues to produce closes finishes as the VAL Sprint Handicapper.
The Victorian Athletic League are forever grateful to these two astounding gentlemen.
