Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THEY flew to Rio de Janeiro,

To rep­re­sent our land.

A group of Aussie ath­letes,

A proud and gal­lant band.

The rant­ing from our media,

Brought pres­sure to their minds.

As head­lines screamed out cham­pi­ons

Are not the los­ing kind.

We cheered aroud the telly,

When Aus­tralia first struck gold.

Know­ing in our hearts,

We’d soon hit the mother load.

Soon our champs stood on the dais,

And there was magic in the air.

When we heard our song which brought a tear,

Ad­vance Aus­tralia Fair.

ROBERT WEBB, Bel­mont.
