Men's 4 x 400m Relay Team (Athletics) - 2004

At the 2004 Athens Olympic Games the "Silver Bullets" surprised the nation, the world and possibly themselves by coming off a world ranking of 11 to make the final and then beat everyone but the dominant Americans, who were represented by all three individual medallists.

The Australians all ran superbly with Hill taking the baton in fifth place for the anchor leg and passing three countries with a blistering split of 44.61.

It was Australia's first Olympic men’s relay medal since Kevan Gosper, Graham Gipson, David lean and Leon Gregory silver in the same event in Melbourne in 1956 and the first men's track medal since Rick Mitchell's silver in the 400m in Moscow in 1980.

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.
