publish On 11th December 2012 Source - INNER WEST COURIER

BRAD Hardman’s next fight is getting boxing included in the Paralympics, after the Newtown resident returned to the ring last Friday night. Missing half of his left leg, Hardman lost to an able-bodied opponent during a fight night at the University of NSW. Now 31, it was his first competitive fight since being involved in a car accident as a 15-year-old. Hardman was a promising Penrith Panthers junior with a 14-2 amateur boxing record before the accident. Now trained by the legendary Johnny Lewis, Hardman has returned to the ring. ‘‘Boxing has been in the Olympics since it started, so why not the Paralympics?,’’ he said.

Smith fires a 65 to lead Vic Open
publish On 22nd February 2013 Source - Sunshine Coast Daily

SUNSHINE Coast pro Sarah Jane Smith's solid summer has turned white hot, with a nine-under opening round at the Women's Victorian Open leaving her atop the leaderboard.
Coming off a 15th place at the Australian Open and fifth place at the New Zealand Open, US-based Smith made seven birdies and an eagle in an unblemished round of 65 at Barwon Head's Beach Golf Links.
She leads fellow Australian Kristie Smith by a stroke, with Sarah Jane Smith's playing partner, England's Laura Davies, third on seven under after a 67.
"Every week it's sort of been getting slowly better and better, so it's nice to have a good round here," Smith said.
"I felt really nice out there. Obviously, it's pretty calm out there in the morning, so you've got to take advantage of that."
Starting on the 10th, Smith moved to two under after back-to-back birdies on the par-four 13th and 14th, before turning at four under after birdies on the par-five 17th and 18th.
She found another gear with an eagle on the par-five second and then made a good round great with birdies on holes four, five and seven.
If Smith wins this tournament, it will be a fitting end to a summer that has enhanced her belief her game is headed in the right direction.
Since teaming with American swing coach Tony Ziegler last April, the 28-year-old believes her game has steadily improved.
She returns to the US after the Victoria Open and will have two weeks of practice with Ziegler before contesting her first LPGA event of the year next month.
The world No.133 played 17 events and made 13 cuts in the US last year.
She matched her best-ever finish with an equal sixth place at the Navistar LPGA Classic last September and had a career-best two top-10 finishes for the season.
She earned $147,633 for the year to finish 67th on the money list and take her career earnings to $465,502.

MEGA Australia sponsors golfer Sarah Jane Smith
publish On 14th February 2013
MEGA AUSTRALIA, the UPF 50+ sun safe sports clothing brand, is delighted to announce it has become an official sponsor of Sarah Jane Smith, one of Australia's most exciting female golfers playing on the LPGA tour.

Sarah Jane, 28, is currently ranked fifth in Australia and 144 in the world. She finished sixth at the US LPGA Tour event in Alabama in September, and fifth at the New Zealand Open last week. Brought up in Caloundra, on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, Sarah Jane now lives in Orlando, Florida with husband and caddy, Duane Smith.

Coached by American Tony Ziegler, Sarah Jane is currently home in Australia to compete in this week's ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open at Royal Canberra Golf Club. One of only a handful of Australians golfers currently playing the LPGA tour, Sarah says she is delighted to join forces with MEGA Australia.

'I am very excited to be associated with MEGA,' Sarah Jane said. 'Whether in a tournament or just practising, one of the biggest concerns for golfers is avoiding sunburn. MEGA's clothes are UPF 50+ protected so give me peace of mind and allow me to concentrate on my game. The fact the fabric is so lightweight, and contours to my body so nicely, is a huge added bonus.'


Simon Beck, MEGA Australia's Business Development Executive, called Sarah Jane an invaluable addition to the MEGA brand.

'We are thrilled Sarah Jane has agreed to wear MEGA's merchandise on the LPGA tour. Her attitude and drive embody what we look for in an athlete, and a MEGA ambassador.'

MEGA AUSTRALIA's clothing was recently certified by the Australian Radiation Protective and Nuclear Safety Agency as UPF 50+ safe. This is the highest protection against the sun's harmful UV rays. Other MEGA Australia ambassadors include Geoff Nicholas, eight times world golf amputee champion, and amputee boxer Brad Hardman.
