Mr D O’BRIEN (Gippsland South) (09:45): Tomorrow is the big day in the Olympics high jump competition, and all of Gippsland will be cheering for Leongatha’s own Eleanor Patterson. Eleanor has overcome injury this year and the disappointment at the Rio Olympics to qualify for the Australian team again, and I am sure the girl from Leongatha will acquit herself well, given the chance. The 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist jumped 1.96 metres just last month to put her in with a good chance. South Gippsland is right behind you, Floss, and we will all be watching tomorrow morning.
