Three NSW cyclists have been named as winners of the 2021 Commonwealth Games NSW Athlete Grant.

Track sprinters Daniel Barber (Dubbo CC) and Kalinda Robinson (Bathurst CC) and tandem para-cyclist Benjamin Said (Manly Warringah CC) are among 41 athletes recognised by Commonwealth Games NSW for their outstanding talent and potential.

CGNSW CEO Peter Tate said, “These young athletes have demonstrated tremendous ability in their respective sport pathways. I have no doubt many will be chosen to represent Australia in future Commonwealth Games”.

This is the fourth edition of the CGNSW Athlete Grants, which first commenced in 2016 and are awarded every second year. Winning athletes must be a resident of NSW, under 20 years of age, and nominated by a state sporting organisation within a sport on the program at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham or Commonwealth Championships in Chandigarh.

Eligible recipients will be awarded $1,000 each.
