Australian athletes live out ‘every kid’s dream’ on eve of Tokyo Olympics

“We already tend to outperform ourselves in terms of the size of our nation.
“There’s expectation that we’ll make some gold, but on the other hand it’s every kid’s dream.
“They’re like a kid in a lolly shop walking around in the Olympic village, while trying to keep a lid on it.”
