Winter Olympian, in our own Extended Family!

For those who love chilly wintery sports, Jarryd Hughes, nephew of Queesnland’s very own Joanne Hughes (BNE Customs Broker) has hit the Olympic Team in Sochi.

Jarryd Hughes will be competing in the Snowboard Cross Men event for Snowboarding at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

Age: 18

Snowboard cross athlete Jarryd Hughes made his mark at the 2012 Junior World Championships, winning silver. Then in his first World Cup in Stoneham, Canada, Hughes claimed first place.

The Stoneham course proved to suit the young snowboarder as he went on to record an 11th place finish at the 2013 World Championships.Sochi_Bio_JarrydHughes
