Australia's 100 Greatest Olympians

Recommended Posts

A few years ago we had the AOC's 50 greatest Olympians. Now we got twice that amount out of the 3367 Aussies who participated in the Olympics. And yes, all three of Australia's Winter gold-medalists and Duncan Armstrong are in with the no-brainers like Perkins, Hackett, Rice, Fraser, O'Neill, Elliott, Gould, rose, Freeman, Strickland, the Oarsome Foursome, and Jackson.

But no Ron Clarke or Michelle Timms.

What a great list it is just hope Harry is working on a book of this list.

Clarke was no big surprise not being on the list as he only won a bronze medal but was still a great athlete but I wouldn't have thought worthy of making the list. Timms was probably a bit tough on missing out n think she was probably the 101st on the list. Only the 3 gold medallists made it for the winter games think Zali Steggall and Kristy Marshall would have been close to making the list.
