Paula manages Olympic athletes
Paula has recently been asked to manage the Australian Taekwondo Olympic team members going to London. The two athletes are Carmen Marton and Safwan Khalil. Paula has known these two since she was managing Carlo Massimino. Carmen and Safwan are a hot item in the lead up to the Olympics and not just because they are medal favourites but because they are a couple and will marry after the Olympics! How’s that for Good Times! Paula is honoured to be of assistance to these athletes and is available for all media and sponsorship enquiries.
