Gettin airbourne

The silvers. Australia has three in mLJ. Never gold. Bruce, OG48 Honey OG84 Taurima OG00. In Sydney 2 finalled. Jumpin Jai and Burgey. Jai became an Aussie sporting legend with his battle with Pedroso. One of my most enduring images in track and field is the boys watching on together while the CUB made his final jump. Burge came 6th. Only our medallists have ever done better in an Oly comp. Culberts PE Teacher Crawley was 6th too in the epic comp of OG68. Tonight we have two more. Watt and Frayne get their chance to enter Aussie sporting folklore. And cop this Bourney has had something to do with all our male Oly LJers this century. Watch it. Read it. Tweet it. Every jump. Every foul. Gonna be a ripper. Get #airborne boys.
