June 2015

Margot Foster AM

MUBC member Margot Foster was recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for her significant service to sports administration and governance at the state and national level, as an elite athlete, and through support for women in sport. Congratulations on this well deserved recognition.

The ideas and format for this history originated from the Olympic Rowing and World Senior Rowing Championship histories written by Margot Foster and the editor of this site, Andrew Guerin in 1991, 1992 & 1993 for the Australian team handbooks.

Margot's superb work for sport continues.

Andrew Cannon AM

Mercantile Rowing Club member Andrew Cannon was also recognised for significant service to the community through fundraising, support roles with a range of organisations and to Indigenous youth education.
