Just over 50 days ago Kim Brennan realised her life-long dream of winning Olympic gold as she rowed herself to the top of the Rio 2016 podium.
A total of 15 Australian athletes who competed at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games have been nominated for the Sport Australia Hall of Fame's 2016 ‘The Don’ Award.
It claims to be the sporting capital of the world and Melbourne did their best at proving that point as locals turned out in force to welcome home the Australian Olympic Team.
Welcome Home celebrations have kicked off in spectacular fashion with a massive crowd turning out to the Sydney Opera House to pay tribute to the amazing achievements of the Australian Olympic Team.
Rowing gold medallist Kim Brennan will have the honour of carrying the flag and leading out the Australian Olympic Team at the Closing Ceremony.
Australia’s Olympic rowing won its first gold medal in eight years, while the men’s four and the men’s quadruple sculls won silver.
