Australian Bronze Medallists visit TRM

August 25, 2016

The Australian eventing quartet of Shane Rose (43), Sam Griffiths (44), Chris Burton (34) and Stuart Tinney (51) visited the TRM manufacturing facility in Newbridge Co Kildare this week, 22nd August 2016.

The Olympians, that won Bronze in the eventing team competition at the Rio, were given a tour of the facility by Managing Director Raoul Masterson and Chief Operating Officer Larry Masterson detailing the many controls that are put into place throughout the production process to guarantee customers the highest quality products.

The Australian team was leading the competition at the conclusion of cross-country leg, and were in gold position heading into the final day of the eventing competition. However, a few dropped poles meant the team picked up Team Bronze, with Gold going to France and Silver to Germany.

TRM Ambassador Sam Griffiths also recorded a personal best finishing individual 4th with wonder mare Paulank Brockagh (ISH), who was bred in Ireland by Paula Cullen.

TRM are delighted to be involved in the sponsorship of both Sam Griffiths and Shane Rose for a number of years now. It was an honour to meet these Olympians and welcome them to Ireland.
