Congratulations Ben Tudhope, selected for the Paralympic Team, PyeongChang 2018

Old Boy, Ben Tudhope (Class of 2017) at 18 years of age has been selected to compete for Australia in his second Winter Paralympic Games. He is once again the youngest member of the Australian Team in PyeongChang, as he was in Sochi in 2014, where he placed a very respectable 10th place in his event. As a Year 9 student at Shore he was given a wild card to compete in Sochi, becoming the youngest Winter Paralympian in the world and also having the honour of being Australia’s Closing Ceremony Flag Bearer.
Ben has been training and competing overseas since completing his HSC, and putting his prestigious Sport Australia Hall of Fame Scholarship to great use leading into the Games, with one-on-one mentoring with former Wallabies Captain and Rugby World Cup Winner, Mr Nick Farr-Jones.

Ben’s family are heading to PyeongChang to support him and the Australian Team. He will be racing in two events; the Snowboardcross on 12 March and the Banked Slalom on March 16. Ben’s Mum, Melissa shared: “There is much excitement coupled with nerves as the Games fast approach.”

On his return Ben will be studying Business with a major in Sports Management at UTS. The School warmly congratulates him on these achievements and wishes him all the best in PyeongChang.
