Great Australian Sporting Moments covers all sports, and some of our biggest sporting legends—Freeman, Thorpe, Bradman, Whitten, Eales, Laver and many more—as well as others best remembered for a single performance, such as Steven Bradbury or the 1983 America's Cup team.
Over the years, our sportsmen and women (and horses) have produced moments of history, as long-held records are broken or previously unimaginable heights reached. There have been moments of high drama, with headline-making controversies, heartbreaking failures, and nail-biting victories. And moments that are simply magic—the triumphs and individual performances where you're just happy to say, "I was there when . . ."
Great Australian Sporting Moments captures in words and stunning photographs some of the biggest and most memorable moments in the history of Australian sport—moments that captivated sports fans throughout the country. This book gives all of us the chance to relive the very best that Australian sport has offered—and remind ourselves that we have good reasons for being a nation of sports-lovers.
