New Faces: CATHY, our Golden Girl
Introducing our newest High Tee, featuring former Olympic gold medallist and advocate for education in Indigenous communities, Cathy Freeman OAM.
Who could forget that moment when Cathy Freeman OAM crossed the finish line of the 400 metres at the Sydney Olympics in 2000? That victory lap with both the flags, that grin on the podium. It was a huge moment for Australian sport – not to mention Australian history. With multiple victories and medals at World Championships, Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games, Cathy truly is one of Australia's sporting heroes. She was ordained Young Australian of the Year in 1990 and Australian of the Year eight years later. Not only an athletic superstar, but an incredible advocate of education and champion of change for young Indigenous children, Cathy will remain forever in our hearts and minds as our Golden Girl.
