Women’s 1500m wheelchair event at the 2000 Sydney Paralympics
Date: July 30, 2014 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell
Wheelchair racer Louise Sauvage was one of the biggest names at the 2000 Sydney Paralympics and was accorded the honour of lighting the flame at the opening ceremony. Her first event – the 800m – did not go according to plan as she suffered a crash. It represented her first loss in the event since 1992. The 1500m provided her with another opportunity to claim a gold medal at a home Paralympics.
Thought of the day
"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires"- William Arthur Ward
Marnus Labuschagne 160no at stumps on day two of the Sheffield Shield final ... a handy knock against a NSW side containing Starc, Hazlewood, Lyon, Abbott & Copeland 🏏 #SheffieldShield
Thoughts with all those in Kalbarri and its surrounds ... the pictures of the devastation from cyclone Seroja are truly shocking 🙏
Interesting to see both Channel Seven and Fox Footy are continuing to commentate games outside Victoria from studios in Melbourne.
Done initially last year as a necessary COVID measure but I wonder now if it will largely be the future of sports broadcasting in AUS.
SYDNEY 4-0 including wins against Brisbane at the Gabba & Richmond at the MCG ... if you predicted this you’re a genius #AFL
