Joann Formosa Inspires School Kids at the Sydney CDI


Throughout the Sydney CDI, a number of school groups get given a glimpse of what it takes to be an elite rider.

This year, they were also given the chance to meet 2012 Paralympic gold medallist, Joann Formosa. The queues to meet Joann were understandably long. Both parents, teachers and kids patiently waited to place the gold medal around their necks.

Joann allowed everyone the opportunity to hold the medal and asked them to close their eyes and imagine something they really wanted to achieve. When times get tough, Joann told them they just had to remember what it felt like to hold their dream (and the medal) in their hands and this would encourage them to keep trying.
It was huge success. Joann will be signing autographs again on Friday and on Saturday evening she will also be riding her horse Worldwide PB in a repeat of her Paralympic gold medal ride.
