5 Unforgettable Olympic Moments
The Olympic Games celebrate excellence in sport, and the discipline, courage and sacrifice required to get there. We take a look at five moments from the last 20 years that transcend the track.
1. Cathy Freeman wins gold
When Cathy Freeman won gold at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 she carried the weight of a nation on her shoulders. Her winning run in the 400m was more than a medal to Australia; it was a source of pride. Her victory lap with both Australian and Aboriginal flags symbolised the hope, felt by many Aussies at the time, for reconciliation and greater inclusion of Aborigines in Australian life.
