Athlete Profile – Andre Rivett

Andre Rivett is a Gold Coast based F20 athlete who competes in Shot Put, Discus and Javelin.  He lives with his parents in Woodridge along with his two dogs and two cats.

The former Kuraby Special School student rates his favourite athletics memory as his first time as an Australian team member when he was selected to compete at the Melanesian Athletics Championships in Fiji in 2016.

Since then Andre has been to the Down Syndrome Games where he collected silver medals in the Shot Put and Discus.  He recently returned from the Down Syndrome Athletics World Championships held in Madeira, Portugal, where he competed in Discus, Javelin and Shot Put. Andre placed 5th in Discus, 6th in Javelin and recorded a new Personal Best in Shot Put finishing 4th with a put of 9.00m.  This was not only a PB but also a new Oceania Record.

On his return from the World Championships Andre was invited to attend the 2018 Logan City Elite Athlete Awards where he was honored for his achievements being awarded the Elite Athlete with a Disability Award.

Andre names his coach Brett Green as his role model because of his dedication and drive for helping Andre to be the best athlete and strive towards his goals.  With his nickname of “The Hulk” Andre also credits the amazing support of other elite athletes Matt Denny, John Lane, Matt Stopel, Julian Wruck and Connor Warren as important to his success.

OAA congratulates Andre and we are all excited to see what is next for this young man.
