Australia's oldest Olympian passes away

21 April 2010

The Australian Olympic Committee regrets to announce the passing of Noel Hall OAM.

Noel was born in November 1913 and at the time of his death (at 96-years-old) was Australia's oldest Olympian.

Noel competed in the Running Deer shooting at Melbourne 1956 and scored 339 points.

Noel was also selected to attend the 1964 Tokyo Olympics but did not attend because there were not enough places in the touring party for all those selected to attend.
