'Advance Australia Fair-ly'

In history’s page, let every stage, advance Australia Fair-ly.

We are a country of sports lovers; we love nothing more than seeing our national heroes raising the cup or adorned in gold. But what price are we willing to pay?

Where is the balance between playing hard but fair and going over the line to win at any cost?

These are some of the questions that will be asked at tonight’s National Sport Integrity Forum: Winning at any cost, the National Debate.

And the good news is, you can watch the forum livestream, commencing at 6:00pm TONIGHT (Monday 16 July) on the Sport Australia Hall of Fame website. Click on the image below, to access the livestream:

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.
