Olympic Memories 19/21

2012 London 2 x Olympic Records
For Jarrod Tallent it should have been Gold on the day!
BUT.... he was given Silver in the 50km Walk... It would be 4 years before he was rightfully crowned Olympic Gold Medallist in the event with an Olympic Record of 3.36.53. The athlete who had been first over the line was disqualified for doping during a period 2009-2012 and stripped of any results during that period
Sally Pearson ramped it up from Silver in Beijing to Gold in London. Lead up preparation for the event had seen her win 32/34 races. She bested the field in the 100m Hurdle 12.35 for an Olympic Record and Gold Medal
Mitchell Watt Long Jump 8.16m
