Hall of Fame Moments 'Enshrined'.

The public through a News Ltd poll judged their three most memorable sporting moments from a list of ten.

The top three were:

*Australia defeates Uruguay in 2005 to qualify for Soccer's 2006 World Cup
*Australia 11 wins yachtying's America's Cup in 1983
*Sydney Swans win the 2005 AFL Premiership via Leo Barr's mark on the siren.

Throughout the polling period there was much debate Australia wide as to the final three, and in fact to the list of ten. The debate only further enforces the many outstanding moments that collectively contribute a significant thread to the Australian sporting tapestry, and the variety of opinions as to the most memorable.

On the night, Leo Barry, Jack Reilly, and John Bertrand were all present to accept the inaugural 'enshrinement' of the first three 'Hall of Fame Moments'.

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.
