The best of the best of the best of the best? Catherine Freeman. Tuesday is the 20th anniversary of the supernova that was the Sydney Olympics. Of the gold medal to beat all gold medals. Of the Australian sporting moment to beat all Australian sporting moments, featuring a fiercely free and strong and caring and authentic athletic spirit. I could waffle on here about the atmosphere and the tension and the noise and the hopes and the dreams and the fears and the euphoria of that springtime Sydney evening but it all boils down to this: September 25, 2000, was inspiring stuff. Dreamlike stuff. Life-affirming stuff. Heroic stuff. Deep-and-meaningful stuff. It was truly, and I do mean truly, legendary stuff.
