In memory of Lionel Hurst

Gymnastics NSW remember the contributions of recently passed NSW Life Member Lionel Hurst. 

Introduced to the world of gymnastics through fellow NSW Life Member Max Baldwin, Lionel became President of the NSW Gymnastics Association in 1974 and led the NSW Gymnastics community to a period of great growth and diversity.

Although juggling a young family and demanding career, Lionel’s dedication to Gymnastics NSW was second to none, with former board members noting that Lionel would never miss a meeting and will be remembered by his friends as a positive, passionate leader. 

The gymnastics community remembers and thanks Lionel for his significant contribution to our fantastic sport.
