Candice Falzon Supports Sport for Women Day

"Sport is extremely important to me. Not only has it given me the opportunity to travel the country competing and achieving my goals, it helped me stay focused during my teens and made me mentally tough. I support Sport for Women Day because I believe no matter what age or ability every Women should get involved in sport. It’s great for the mind as well as the body and spirit!!"
