Olympic champion swimmer Susie O’Neill recalled the magical moment she learned Sydney had won the 2000 Olympics “like it was yesterday”.

She told James Bracey it was a “surreal” feeling and inspired her to train even harder, and many young athletes will feel the same way today.

“For a young athlete, 10 years will seem like a different lifetime won’t it, but it’ll certainly be a nice big carrot at the end of all the training.”
