Remember The Devastating Moment Jane Saville Was Disqualified At The Sydney 2000 Games?
Let's never forget Sydney 2000.
Back in 2000, the former IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch proclaimed the Sydney Olympics was the best games ever.
Australian race walker Jane Saville was disqualified just metres from entering a packed stadium where she was set to win gold.
It’s a soul-crushing moment… but that image of a distraught Saville is one of the most iconic of the Sydney games. It’s immortalised in Australian sporting history.
The country’s heart broke with her that day.
Four years later Saville headed to Athens, where she won bronze in the 20km race walk event! ❤️
