What Makes Australia Great: Steven Bradbury


Australia day is coming on January 26 so I thought it was time to kick off this years edition of What Makes Australia Great.

Steven Bradbury is an incredible sportsman. He is well-known of his gold medal win in the men’s short track 1000 meters during Olympic Games Salt Lake City 2002. In the final, Bradbury was in last place, but then all his opponents - Apolo Anton Ohno, Ahn Hyun-Soo, Li Jiajun and Mathieu Turcotte, crashed out at the final corner. Steven was completely shocked. It was first gold medal for Australia in the history. After winning his medal, he said: “Obviously I wasn’t the fastest skater. I don’t think I’ll take the medal as the minute-and-a-half of the race I actually won. I’ll take it as the last decade of the hard slog I put in.”
