Announcement of Nationality change to Australian
With my father David Green being an Aussie and my mother Lucinda Green being British, there has always been an option of which country’s flag I would compete under. With my upbringing, I have often found myself waving an Australian flag with one hand and a British one with the other. I was born in Britain so it felt natural to be a part of the British system, something I have always admired and been extremely grateful for.
However, when I went back to Australia as an adult, I fell in love with the country and it has captivated me ever since. I guess I am just an Aussie at heart, so for me, it feels right to compete under the Australian flag, something of which I am immensely proud. And as an Australian event rider based in the UK,
I am extremely grateful that I will continue to train and compete within the very best Eventing scene in the world.
Chris Webb, Australian High Performance Manager has added:
