STATEMENT

24 February 2014

Last Friday Matthew Robinson passed away after being seriously injured earlier this month while competing for Australia at the International Paralympic Committee’s Para-snowboard World Cup Finals.

Matthew was a much loved son, fiancé, brother and friend to many. He was also a talented athlete, who had won the Para-snowboard World Cup and was pursuing his dreams in the sport.

On behalf of the Australian Government, I would like to express my deepest sympathy to Matthew’s family and friends on this tragedy.

I would like to also offer my condolences to Matthew’s fellow team members and the Australian Paralympic Committee in this difficult time.
