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.
Thought of the day
"Life is like a movie, write your own ending"- Jim Henson
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
Congratulations to @AusWomenCricket
