Mens Olympic 2000m 1952 Tandem (Mockridge & Cox) (Cycling) - 1952

One of the most remarkable partnerships in Australian sporting history, Mockridge and Cox came together as a team only days before the event. Cox had never been on a tandem. The two men with different styles improved with every ride through heats, quarterfinals, semi finals and taking the Gold Medal in the final.

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.
