In an Olympic campaign which saw records shatter, pools turn green and public safety at an all-time low, competitors from Macarthur were quiet achievers who represented their sports and their country with pride. One Camden-born athlete picked up the best reward an Olympian could hope for. Chloe Esposito – who was born in Camden, lived in Casula, trained in Kemps Creek and is based in Hunga- ry – shocked the world with her gold medal performance in the modern pentathlon. “I can't describe it,” the 24-year-old told Fairfax Me- dia. “It's just the best feeling ever. All my hard work has finally paid off.” Chloe’s father Daniel coached both her and 19-year-old brother Max in the sport he represented Australia in at the 1984 Olym- pics. Max also performed well, finishing seventh as the youngest competitor in his field. Macarthur Triathlon Club member and Camden-raised athlete Erin Densham – a three-time Olympian and 2012 bronze medallist – completed the triathlon in just under two hours. She placed 12 overall and was the second-placed Australian in the race, be- hind Emma Moffatt. “To finish my third Olym- pics the way I did, I couldn’t be prouder,” Densham told Triathlon Australia. Macarthur Triathlon Club president Glenn Schwarzel said it was great to see Den- sham perform so well and the club “couldn’t be any more delighted”. Currans Hill’s Warren Potent finished 35th in his shooting event, Werombi’s Shane Rose picked up a team bronze in eventing and Rose- meadow soccer star Alanna Kennedy was knocked out in a heartbreaking quarter-final against Brazil.

The purpose of the meeting was to download to dealers some of the things Holden are doing in the marketplace, and to show us some of the new models heading our way. Some of you may recall that Holden stated recently that by 2020 there would be 24 new models hitting dealers showrooms…well we are now starting to see some of the cars arrive. The next new one for us is the Colorado Truck, this vehicle has had major upgrades not only externally, but more dramatically internally, and now sits at the pinnacle of the available truck range in Australia, a true leap forward. Dealers were also shown some future product in the European car of the year Holden Astra, some revised models in Trax and Barina and a couple of surprises that had us all grinning…the confidence of the dealers leaving the meeting was amazingly high and gave testament to the hard work k Holden have done to bring great feature rich content to our market…I personally can’t wait for the Astra, but I’m sure going to sit my bum in a new Colorado first!! They’ll hit our showroom September 1st so head on down from then on for a look at how serious Holden is about change….
