Last Monday greyhound racing lost an incredible woman in Michelle Niele at just age 23.
Michelle Niele had Cystic Fibrosis, which may have limited Michelle in some aspects of her life, but it didn’t stop her putting everything she had into loving her greyhounds.
Michelle and father Michael trained a small but competitive team of greyhounds together from their home town of Berringa, with Michael often remarking that Michelle was the brain behind their kennel’s success.
She knew where to place each one of their greyhounds to get the very best out of them, but what she loved even more than watching their dogs race was the cuddle-time she spent with them.
Although we won’t get to see Michelle’s beautiful smile track side anymore, her memory and dedication to the greyhound breed and sport will live on.
Rest in peace, Michelle. Our thoughts are with the Niele family along with her all of her close friends.
Funeral details to come.
