Boxing Legend Jeff Horn joins as latest ambassador for INAS Global Games 2019

Australia’s box­ing leg­end Jeff Horn has thrown his weight into the ring as the third offi­cial Ambas­sador for the 2019INAS Glob­al Games – Brisbane.

The for­mer WBO Wel­ter­weight Cham­pi­on who calls Bris­bane home was a nat­ur­al choice for the Ambas­sador role.

I’m hon­oured to join the INAS Glob­al Games and very excit­ed to play a role in this inspi­ra­tional cel­e­bra­tion of ath­let­ic abil­i­ty,” Horn said.

Being born and bred in Bris­bane I am very proud to be an Ambas­sador for this major sport­ing event and I am cer­tain­ly encour­ag­ing every­one to come along and expe­ri­ence the unique great­ness of these Games.”

With ath­letes from up to 80 coun­tries proud­ly con­test­ing suc­cess through­out these Games, we will see not only excep­tion­al ath­let­ic prowess, but wit­ness the courage and deter­mi­na­tion as these inter­na­tion­al ath­letes strive to be the very best that they can be,” adds Horn.

The box­ing great joins Australia’s ten­nis leg­end, Pat Rafter and Par­a­lympic swim­ming sen­sa­tion Daniel Fox as 2019INAS Glob­al Games Ambassadors.

It’s great to have Jeff along on the GG2019 jour­ney with the com­pelling pas­sion and sheer deter­mi­na­tion he shows in the ring. I know his rep­u­ta­tion and abil­i­ty to con­nect with all of Aus­tralia and glob­al­ly will be a real ben­e­fit in pro­mot­ing the INAS Glob­al Games,” says GGSCCEO, Robyn Smith.

It is not only Jeff’s fight­ing spir­it and his suc­cess in the ring that makes him the per­fect Ambas­sador; it is his hum­ble demeanor and per­son­al com­mit­ment for inclu­siv­i­ty in schools and soci­ety, as he leads the way to reduce bul­ly­ing and dis­crim­i­na­tion, that makes him stand out,” adds Smith.

In join­ing Pat Rafter and Daniel Fox, Jeff Horn will be active­ly pro­mot­ing the vision of the Glob­al Games – that inclu­sive sport has the abil­i­ty to change atti­tudes, chal­lenge per­cep­tions and strength­en com­mu­ni­ties both local­ly and globally.
