Tanya Streeter, World Champion Freediver has been invited to attend the 24th Annual Salute to Women in Sport Awards and Dinner on 20th October at the Waldorf Astoria on Park Avenue in New York by the "Women’s Sports Foundation". Tanya will be one of 80 champion athletes representing over 40 sports who has been chosen because of her media presence over the last 12 months, being one of the most publicly recognized female athletes, and her representation of the sport of freediving.
The Women’s Sports Foundation was founded in 1974 by the great Billie Jean King, and is a charitable and educational organization dedicated to ensuring equal access to participation and leadership for girls and women in sports and fitness. The foundation lists some of the all time greats in sport and entertainment as trustees such as Chris Evert, Geena Davis, Holly Hunter and Martina Navratilova.
The event takes place over 2 days, with a great deal of sports and mainstream media attention and will give Tanya a great opportunity to meet fellow athletes, cultivate relationships with corporate benefactors, media, potential sponsors. The dinner on the 20th October is the highlight and a huge media event, and Tanya will be sure to receive and great deal of interest and requests to participate in interviews with radio, TV and print journalists and is an excellent opportunity to promote her sport and sponsors.
Comments from Tanya "I am thrilled and honored to be invited to attend this event and to have my name on a list together with so many accomplished athletes whom I admire so much. It’s exciting that the sport of freediving is being recognized along with so many mainstream sports. Its also nice to know that our efforts to promote freediving in a safe and professional manner do not go un-noticed by the rest of the sporting world."
