Great Moments in Australian Sporting History

Posted: October 22, 2016 in General Sport

As the A-League hibernated for its ridiculously long six-month off-season, I turned my attention to other sports and worked with Guardian Australia on a series to look back at some historic moments in the nation’s glittering sport history. Here are a few of them:

The first Kangaroos tour of Great Britain (1908)


Nicky Winmar takes a stand against the racists (1993)


Shane Warne’s Ball of the Century (1993)


Australia win The Americas Cup (1983)


The Super League Wars  (1994-1998)


The Socceroos qualify for the World Cup (2005)


Steven Bradbury wins a gold medal at the Winter Olympics (2002)


Australia at the Olympics (1896-2016)
