You’ve set up your own website and continuously promote your athletes through media releases etc. Do you find it hard to promote your own athletes in a sport that is up against the other sports in Australia such as AFL and Rugby League?

Promotion of athletics in Australia is extremely tough but every little bit helps. My website www.mattybdept.com is designed to promote athletes, give an insight into our squad and recognize and thank our sponsors.
