ASC tribute to Gary West

21 August 2017

Australian Sports Commission CEO Kate Palmer has paid tribute to iconic cycling coach Gary West, who passed away on the weekend following a battle with Motor Neurone Disease.

“Australian sport has lost a wonderful man, coach and ambassador,” Kate Palmer said.

“It was wonderful to see Gary inducted into the AIS Best of the Best at last year’s AIS Sport Performance Awards and for him to accept that award beside, Anna Meares, the champion athlete who he worked so closely with.

“We pay our respect to Gary’s legacy, and offer our condolences to his family, friends and the cycling community who he so positively influenced.”
