Gina Rinehart’s Atlas Iron has entered into a four-year partnership with Artistic Swimming WA. The aim of this partnership is to foster the development of aspiring swimmers in Western Australia.

Over the course of the partnership, a dedicated coach from Artistic Swimming WA will collaborate with the swimmers. This is to prepare them for the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. The comprehensive training program will also equip the swimmers to try out for the Australian National Teams. The ultimate objective of this is to earn a spot on the Australian Senior National Team. They are based at the Hancock Prospecting Centre of Excellence in Perth.

Hancock Prospecting’s CEO of Operations, Gerhard Veldsman, expressed gratitude for Mrs. Rinehart’s enduring support for artistic swimming. He highlighted her role as Patron of Australia’s renowned Olympic swimming, rowing, volleyball, and artistic swimming teams. Veldsman emphasised the importance of continuing this legacy to provide essential support for aspiring athletes in Western Australia.

Nikki Eidne, Chair of Artistic Swimming WA, conveyed enthusiasm about Atlas Iron’s role as a key partner, emphasizing that the sponsorship underscores their mutual commitment to excellence. She noted that the collaboration reflects a shared vision to support local talent on their journey to achieving success at the highest levels of international competition.
