Women’s road race at the Athens Olympics
Date: August 12, 2020 / Posted by Glenn Mitchell
Sara Carrigan rode through the streets of Athens in 2004 to claim gold in the women’s 126km road race, coming over the top of Germany’s Judith Arndt in the shadow of the line. It was only the second time, after Kathy Watt in Barcelona 12 years earlier, that Australia had won the gold medal in a road race event at the Olympic Games.
The day after her gold medal triumph in spoke to her in the ABC studios at the International Broadcast Centre.

The joke that keeps on giving 😀 @kokeeffe49
I read this book a few months ago … written by Eddie Jaku and published when he was 100yo … extremely saddened to hear of his passing … a wonderful man who survived the Holocaust … his message, “As long as I live, I’ll teach not to hate.”

Where has the time gone?
I have been incredibly lucky to experience many wonderful things in my life but nothing surpasses being a father.
Thank you young man ❤️
Congratulations to @AusWomenCricket … claiming the series v IND with a game to come … the depth of batting in the AUS line-up is a massive plus … the middle-lower order seldom panics and often can get the job done if the top order stutters 👏 🏏 #AUSvIND
