A Lennox Head local has been chosen out of 50,000 applicants to be a volunteer reporter for the Commonwealth Games being held April 4 – 15 on the Gold Coast.
Evan Harding will work with 900 other volunteers as a member of the Games’ Press Operations team. This placement is well suited to the 40-year-old father who is an avid athletics fan and co-founder and Director of Barefruit Marketing.
The official title of Evan’s role is ‘Flash Quote Reporter’ for the Netball competition, and requires him to interview the athletes court side after the game. These quotes will be taken up by the world’s media during the coverage of the games.
