Five Australian referees have been chosen to officiate at the 2012 London Olympic Games Football Tournament.
Sarah Ho, Allyson Flynn, Ben Williams, Matthew Cream and Hakan Anaz were selected by a FIFA selection panel to become a major part of the 15 strong delegation of AFC referees.
FFA Director of Referees Mark Shield has congratulated the referees who will leave for London in July to join the rest of their colleagues for the tournament.
“This is a fantastic achievement and FFA are proud to have five outstanding match officials selected for this prestigious competition,” said Shield.
“These five appointments are a reflection of the professionalism and ability of Australian referees acknowledged on the world stage.”
This will be Sarah Ho’s second Olympic Games appearance as an assistant referee, while Ben Williams is set to officiate at his first major FIFA tournament.
