Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIAN ath­letes will wear black arm­bands to hon­our Betty Cuth­bert for the re­main­der of the world cham­pi­onships.

The IAAF ap­proved the mark of re­spect while a minute’s si­lence also took place in­side the Olympic Sta­dium be­fore the start of last night’s ses­sion.

More than 50,000 fans in Lon­don stood as one as a mov­ing trib­ute to the late leg­end with photos of Cuth­bert’s ca­reer ap­pear­ing on the large score­boards.
