Just because I just found it...
Still makes me cry.... for many Aussies, Cathy Freeman winning her gold is one of those moments where you remember where you were when it happened. I was in Shepparton, a country town, and the pub was PACKED and SCREAMING. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNmuyxlZ9Kk
Wow! I was in a pub too.
I was at the Natimuk Pub, travelling through acting as a pilot vehicle. (Moving a large piece of engineering equipment.)
We had to choose a pub with good TV coverage so to see THE race.
We had to park the equipment in a farmer's paddock that had a wide enough gate then drive the 25 km to Natimuk.
I've never been there since. It was a small country town and the pub was packed and screaming and did the whole place erupt!... It was so exciting!
