Vale : Gillian Rolton (OAM)

27 Nov 2017

The South Australian Sports Institute is deeply saddened at the passing of Gillian Rolton after losing her two year battle to endometrial cancer.

Gillian’s name is synonymous with the proud traditions of eventing throughout Australia, a sport in which Gillian achieved so much, and one to which she gave so much.

The manner and courage with which she won her Olympic Gold Medals, especially in Atlanta in 1996,  was inspiring and indeed of legendary status. This passion and commitment was evidenced equally in her contribution to developing the Adelaide International Three Day Event over the past decade.

Our sincere condolences are extended to her family and close friends.
