The Sport Australia Hall of Fame's 35th Official 'Legend of Australian Sport' and Chairman, John Bertrand AO, conducted a fantastic informal interview with the two greats, and together the three shared memories with the guests.

Special guests included The Sport Australia Hall of Fame Members; Dawn Fraser AO MBE, John Bertrand AO, Nick Farr-Jones AM, Adam Gilchrist AM, John Eales AM, John O'Neill AO and Board Members The Hon. Rod Kemp and Catherine Harris AO PSM.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
