August 15, 2023 | Sydney Flames news

Sydney Flames star and current Opals captain Tess Madgen was on hand on Monday as the Australian Olympic Committee welcomed Harvey Norman as an official partner of its team for the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

With just 347 days until the cauldron is lit at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, this new partnership will see Harvey Norman support Australian athletes competing at the world’s biggest sporting event.


AOC CEO Matt Carroll welcomed Harvey Norman to the Olympic partner family.

“The AOC is thrilled to have Harvey Norman on board as an Australian Olympic Team Partner,” Carroll said.

“Harvey Norman has been a great supporter of sport and athletes over many years, so it’s great to welcome them to our partner family from corporate Australia, supporting Australian athletes to achieve their Olympic dreams in Paris and beyond.

“Olympians have been preparing for these Games over many years, aiming to represent Australia with pride and they bring incredible stories of perseverance and achievement to Australians.

“With less than a year until the Australian Team takes part in a unique Opening Ceremony along the River Seine in Paris, it’s an exciting time for the Olympic movement in Australia.

“Thank you to the entire Harvey Norman team, we look forward to building a special partnership with you.”

Katie Page CEO, Harvey Norman was just as excited about the partnership.

“Today we announce our new partnership with the Australian Olympic Team as our athletes prepare for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, and we announce the renewal of our three-year partnership with the Australian Paralympic Team for a further two years,” said Page, whose company is also the major partner of the Sydney Flames and Kings.

“Announcing our partnerships with both our national teams simultaneously is what Harvey Norman is all about – to support and celebrate our Australian athletes competing at the highest level, representing our country, across the broadest range of sports.

“The Olympic and Paralympic Games are unrivalled platforms for recognising individual athletic brilliance, national celebration of team achievement and inspiring future athletes to believe what is possible, often in less prominent sports.

“Gerry and I are here today on behalf of the entire Harvey Norman team.

“Together, we are fans of every sport and every athlete.

“We know if you are selected onto our Olympic and Paralympic teams you are the best of the best.

“Your path to selection has been tough. There were times you thought too tough.

“You will forever be Olympians and Paralympians – an accomplishment few will ever achieve and one that can never be diminished.

“In our support of you, we ask you to share your stories.

“The stories from long before you were selected, back when the Olympic or Paralympic Games first became your dream.

“If we can achieve anything in our partnerships, it is to support the creation of more dreams and bring more Olympic and Paralympic dreams to life.”

The partnership with Harvey Norman will assist the AOC to send three Teams to Games in the next two years.
