After witnessing her son win tickets to Bali and the 2013 AFL grand final, Mrs O’Donovan is thrilled to have won a competition of her own.

The Ultimate Australian Sports Weekend prize included two economy flights to a sporting game of her choice including the AFL grand final, Melbourne Cup or Australian Open.

‘My son won a competition to visit the grand final last year and this year my husband Denis and I will get the chance to go,’ Mrs O’Donovan said.

‘I’ve never won something like this before, it’s brilliant, I’m so excited.’

‘I have always wanted to go to Melbourne, so I am really looking forward to that too.’

The West Coast Eagles supporter said while she hoped her team would make it to the final, she was happy to watch the game no matter who made it to the big day in September.
