Mark Wright - Head of Sport and Local Community

Our fearless leader Mark has chosen a classic moment from recent NRL history - the South Sydney Rabbitohs breaking a 43 year premiership drought to claim the title in 2014.

"Such a tough choice, England wining the Rugby World Cup over Australia in 2003, Leeds United's famous FA Cup final win over Arsenal in 1972, any of Roger Federer's 20 grand slam victories, me winning the UK midlands athletics 800m in a time of 1m 59s and being presented the gold medal by Harold Abrahams....well duty calls as a foundation member of the mighty Rabittohs, that it has to be their fairy-tale victory in the NRL Grand final in 2014."

Roger Carter - Sport Development Manager

Roger's choice will help you cope with a delayed Tokyo 2020 - he has gone with a magic moment in Olympic history.

"Once you have spent a few decades watching a lot of sport, not a lot leaves your jaw on the floor in a state of speechlessness, wonder and amazement.   But seeing Bolt destroy the field in Beijing in the 100M, with time to slow down and almost celebrate before the line, was a sporting moment I had never ever witnessed before, I was in sheer disbelief!"

Helen Bryson - Elite Athlete Program Manager

Helen just couldn't choose between two classic moments and we can't really blame her, as they are both incredible. Like Roger, she has gone for an Olympic moment for her first choice, with Kieren Perkins only just qualifying for the 1500m final at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and then winning from lane 8.

Helen's other choice was her beloved Sydney Swans winning a sensational premiership in 2012 over Hawthorn by 10 points. This great highlights package will take you right back.

David Maxwell - Sport and Local Community Engagement Officer

Our resident rugby nut, Maxi has gone for an incredible moment in Wallabies history - a historic win over archrivals the All Blacks.

"The year is 2000 and in front of 109,000 fans at Stadium Australia, the Wallabies take on the All Blacks in what has been described as the greatest game of rugby ever played. Combined with the most incredible start to a match that needs to be seen to be believed and the most tense of finishes, this match had it all."

Megan Maurice - Sports Media and Communications Officer

If you've spoken to Megan for longer than about five seconds, you will be well aware that she is a women's sport devotee (to put it mildly). As a netball fanatic, she has chosen one of the sport's greatest games to look back at.

"The 1999 Netball World Cup final was an absolute cracker. The New Zealand Silver Ferns were the firm favourites - playing at home and against an Australian team that the local media had dubbed "geriatrics". With the Ferns up by six goals going into the final quarter, they looked certain to take the win, but a young goal attack by the name of Sharelle McMahon had other ideas."
