Peter FitzSimons' Great Australian Sports Champions

Peter FitzSimons

When Peter FitzSimons joined the Sydney Morning Herald in the late 1980s, his ambition was to seek out all of the major Australian sportsmen and women he had heard about or admired over the years - and write about them, warts and all, joys and all, regrets and all. Over the next decade he did just this, and now Great Australian Sports Champions brings together his updated collection of the memories and anecdotes, inspirations and fears, heroic acts and humble gestures of Australia’s sporting greats, past and present. For any fan who has ever cheered an Aussie home, or shed a tear after an Australian victory or defeat, these tales of champions from Brabham to Border, from Gasnier to Gaze, from Fraser to Freeman, captured by irrepressible FitzSimons - newspaper columnist, breakfast radio host, and bestselling author of Kokoda and tobruk - but told by the men and women at the heart of the matter, will inspire you to get up and barrack all the more for our great Australian sports champions.
