Australian Aerial Skiing Team (Flying Kangaroos) (Skiing) - 2002/3

Following the remarkable success of the members of the Flying Kangaroo team at the Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games in 2002, the team went on in 2003 to claim the world number one ranking for the first time, becoming the most successful Australian winter sports team in history. The Australian team won the Nation’s Cup as the world’s number one women’s aerial skiing team for the first time. In all the team won four gold, four silver and two bronze World Cup medals during the 2003 World Cup season. It was the fist time that Australian athletes have occupied the top two positions in the world in any winter sport.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
