Great Sporting Moments
Throughout our nation's history there have been many outstanding sporting moments that collectively contribute a significant thread to the Australian sporting tapestry.
The Sport Australia Hall of Fame recognises the importance of acknowledging and celebrating these sporting moments and in 2007 introduced the 'Great Sporting Moments'. In the inaugural year three such moments were 'enshrined' after the public voted through a national News Ltd poll.
Each year The Sport Australia Hall of Fame Selection Committee have nominated outstanding moments to be ‘enshrined’ into The Hall of Fame ‘Spirit of Sport’ exhibit at the National Sports Museum.
