The following is a press release from the Perth Mint
Watch out for kayakers Jesse Phillips and Stephen Bird at London 2012. The two Perth-based athletes are representing Australia in the K2 200m sprint paddle, having taken out this year's National Title and also the 2012 Oceania Championships. Amid their final preparations, the busy pair generously found time to pose for photographs holding coins from our official 2012 Australian Olympic Team Program. The amazingly talented duo is well-positioned to make a tremendous impact in England and we'll be cheering wildly for them to succeed!
