A new mural of Hayley Wilson, Mansfield Olympian, has been installed on the eastern wall of the Mansfield Sporting Complex.

The project is the result of a collaboration between Mansfield Shire Council and The Hype Agency on behalf of Nike.

Hayley Wilson made history in Tokyo as the first female street skateboarder for Australia. The mural is a celebration of this moment.

Mayor Cr James Tehan said he was pleased to be able to celebrate the sporting achievements of young community members.

“We are very proud of Hayley. Her integrity and dedication are an example other young people can look to for inspiration,” said Cr Tehan.

Ms Wilson said she was proud of the opportunities that came from being part of the Mansfield Shire community.

“Mansfield is a very active community with many outdoor activities and am very lucky to have grown up here. If I can inspire one person to go for what they want I will be happy.”
