Aussie Olympian ‘floating on a cloud’ after historic feat
Aussie Owen Wright has claimed bronze in the first-ever Olympic surfing competition.
The first surfing bronze medallist nearly died from a wipeout in Hawaii in 2015, suffering a traumatic brain injury.
Wright told Ben Fordham he fought hard to be at the Olympics.
“When I got that medal it just felt like a big, big relief.
“I’m still floating on that cloud, mate.”
