    Nominate:
    - Mark Spitz's 7 Gold and 7 world records - Munich 1972
    - Dawn Fraser wins her 3rd straight 100m freestyle - Tokyo 1964
    - Shane Gould, wins 3 gold, and becomes the first ever female swimmer to win 3 Olympic Gold each in WR time (200m IM, 200m & 400m free). By doing so she also became the only male or female swimmer to ever hold the WR for each freestyle event from 100m to 1500m at the same time. She was only 15 at the time, and retired soon after - Munich 1972

    Second:
    - Mens 4x100m Relay Sydney 2000, take that Gary Hall Wkr.
    - USA Dream Team Bball
    - Johnsons 200/400 double

    Will think of more later.

    Soooo wanted to nominate Lewis vs. Powell, shame it was at the world champs though

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Nominate
    Jane Saville 2000 Olympics - 20KM Walker disqualifed just metres out from the stadium entrance, in first place.

    ------------
    Terrible moment but the memory was great IMO, she handled it in a great way, the exact way I'd expect all Aussies athletes to be.

    Was also thinking of voting Shane Kelly for his pedal slip and Laydown Sally lol.

    Should change it to memorable moments imo, instead of "best". Because the most memorable moments aren't always the best (see laydown sally)

    Won the bronze, tbf.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Good idea, will do this now.

    EDIT - Actually I guess I can't change it. Could someone change the title to Battle of the most memorable moments in Summer Olympics history.


    Cheers
