During our 60th year Anniversary event, Glenray was proud to introduce a new ambassador to our organisation, Janelle Lindsay OAM.
Janelle is an Olympic Gold Medal winning cyclist who overcame a near death experience to achieve the pinnacle of success in her chosen discipline .
Teaming up with visually impaired rider Lindy Hou OAM, Janelle was a pilot of a tandem who represented Australia at the Athens 2004 Paralympics. Janelle and Lindy won the Gold Medal in the Women’s Tandem Sprint , a Bronze in the 1000m Time Trail and broke the World Record for the 200m Fly in the Sprint qualifying rounds .
Janelle was awarded the Order of Australia Medal in recognition for services to sport as a Gold Medallist at the Athens 2004 Paralympic Games. This was achieved against all odds. In 2003 Janelle was hit by a car when out training, which left her with a broken back, pelvis, hip, & shoulder . Doctors told her she may not walk again. Despite the negative prognosis, Janelle never gave up her dream winning a Gold Medal.
Janelle states “I’m so proud to be the ambassador for Glenray. As a business it shows what you can do when you are focused on people’s abilities rather than their disability. This is a company that takes care of its employees and I can’t wait to share with the local community and further abroad how important, empowering and dynamic Glenray is.”
A successful international career in Strength and Conditioning Coaching, Personal Training, Pilates Instruction and Nutrition coaching means that she can impart her knowledge, passion, attitude and experience to those around her.
