Stuart O’Grady and Graeme Brown ensured Australia won consecutive gold medals in the Madison when they triumphed at the Athens Olympics in 2004.
Thought of the day
"Don't bunt. Aim out of the ballpark"- David Ogilvy
20 years ago today I called my first AUS Olympic gold medal ... Scott McGrory & Brett Aitken triumphing on the velodrome in the Madison ... an incredibly emotional win with Scott having lost his 11-week old son just 10 weeks before the Games ... it’s a night I will never forget.
First finals appearance in 23 years for the Perth Demons ... a tough contract up against West Perth which has won their last 18 encounters ... looking forward to calling the @WAFLOfficial sudden-death first-semi final at a windy Arena Joondalup on @Channel7 #WPvP
Congratulations @Richie_porte ... a third-place podium finish awaits at the #tourdefrance2020 ... a mighty effort after so many disappointments in recent years ... you’ve done AUS proud 👏 🚴🏻
