TWO of Toowoomba BMX’s shining stars have recently received a funding boost from the Toowoomba Turf Club’s Junior Sport Assistance Program.

Carissa and Katelyn Osborne, of Toowoomba, will use their $250 grants to further their careers in the sport that they have been involved in for many years.

Carissa has competed at the Australian Titles, the Queensland Titles and the South Queensland Titles, while Katelyn has competed at the South Queensland Titles. Carissa’s highest level of achievement is reaching number two in BMX in Southern Queensland, while her sister has achieved number five status.

Both girls share a great passion for the sport and, along with their family, are heavily involved in the Toowoomba BMX community.

Toowoomba Turf Club Chief Executive Officer Blair Odgers congratulated the sisters on their recent achievements.

“It’s great to see locals achieving great results at local, State and National levels. Both Carissa and Katelyn are worthy recipients of JSAP funding for this latest round.”

Local junior sports achievers are encouraged to apply for funding, which is awarded twice per year. For a full list of sports covered, please visit
