Architects and designers from four states seized the opportunity to join Gerflor representatives for a private lunch before taking their A class seats at the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

Managing Director, Chris Low and National Sport Manager, Paul Tofful hosted the program made possible through Gerflor’s ongoing partnership with Volleyball Australia.

“It was a fantastic opportunity to be part of such a momentous occasion for the Gold Coast and Australia. The theatre, sound and live performances were fabulous and it was really exciting to witness the parade of elite athletes pouring into the arena at the start of a program they have trained so hard for.

“Our guests got to meet the Technical Director of Beach Volleyball for Australia, Victor Anfiloff just hours before he walked into the stadium with the rest of the Australian athletes. It was great to hear first hand from someone so passionate about his sport and who coaches and has played Volleyball at an elite level both indoors and beach,” Mr Low said.

“We can speak with confidence as the manufacturer of Taraflex about the safety and performance characteristics of our sports floor. But the message is much more potent when it is delivered by an elite athlete who has experienced it first hand and can confirm how critical it is to have the right surface to allow him to train at the level he needs to achieve his best,” he added.
