I am so proud of him and his achievements
My Son Terry Participated
The Olympic Torch Run
4th August 2000
Terry was selected to take part in this great occasion, in recognition for his
volunteer work with Clean-Up Australia
10,000 runners 12,000 torches ~~ Relay began 12 May - ended 15 September
Taking 120 days, this relay was the longest ever with the last runner entering the
Olympic Stadium on September 15.
One hundred of those days were in Australia, where the torch zigzagged across
the country, covering 27,000 kilometres, over deserts and mountains,
in surfboats and on horseback: but mainly on foot.
NB -There was even one small section that was swum underwater.
