Australian Top-10 Sporting Moments

October 10th, 2007 · No Comments · Sport

A recent online survey for the Sydney Morning Herald asked their readers to come up with their top 10 greatest sporting moments. Although it was an online survey that anyone could participate in, most of the readers would have come form the Sydney region, which is shown by the Sydney Swans grand final win making it into the top 10. Hardly a highlight for the rest of Australia. Other than that aberration, the list looks reasonable to me.

1. Australia II’s America’s Cup victory
2. Sydney 2000
3. Socceroos qualifying for the 2006 World Cup
4. Anything Bradman
5. Cathy Freeman’s gold in Sydney
6. Kieren Perkins’s win in Atlanta 1996
7. Phar Lap
=8 Rod Laver
=8 Swans’ 2005 grand final win
=8 World Series Cricket
