Gate to get to the field of play is right next to me. All night long, photographers have been asking about oscar and where he runs and where they can set up on the field of play. They also came and went on and off field of play when there runners were on the field. Not many assian photographers though. I know one was from cyrpus. Most were white. --LauraHale (talk) 20:19, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Australia medals in every final contested Sunday night

ATHLETICS team manager Andrew Faichney was grinning ear to ear after Australia claimed a medal in every one of the five finals contested by the home team in the Olympic Park Stadium on Sunday night.

Add the evening medal haul to Kelly Cartwright’s gold in the long jump (T42-44) and Christie Dawes’ breakthrough bronze in the 5000m (T54) in the morning session, and Australia came away with seven medals in a day’s work – 1 gold, 2 silver, 4 bronze.

``It was fantastic. There were so many sensational performances from our team,’’ Faichney said. ``Every athlete was able to perform to medal standard, or close, which is what they all come here to do. It was fantastic to watch.’’

Simon Patmore (Qld) opened the show tonight with a heroic bronze in the 200m (T46) final, after he strained his left hamstring coming off the bend.

``I was very lucky to get bronze. I felt my hammy go but there was no way I was going to let go and stop,’’ he said. ``The thought went through my mind. But I said `Nah, it’s not going to happen; not today’ and look where it got me.’’

Patmore took bronze in the event at the 2001 world titles in Christchurch but is on debut in London and has come away with a maiden medal.

``Simon ran a strong race and the dip was great,’’ he said referring to Patmore throwing himself at the line, to force officials to check the photo with fourth placegetter and gold medallist in New Zealand, Antonis Aresti (Cyprus).

``It got him a bronze medal which is a great result for him,’’ Faichney said.

Then the T53 wheelchair of Richard Colman (Vic) in the 400m and Angie Ballard (NSW) in the 100m both collected bronze medals. Madison de Rozario was fifth.

``It's a huge result for Angie. She is here at her fourth Games and to end up with a podium finish will do wonders for her confidence. It was very pleasing to see her in the medal ceremony,’’ Faichney said.

Ballard said: ``It’s really good especially after how I did at Beijing. So to go home with a medal is great. Hopefully I can do more with that over the rest of the week.’’

Colman is becoming `Mr Consistent’ since he took the same colour medal for the same event in Beijing.

``I am. I just seem to be getting that bronze all the time,’’ he said. ``It’s still a good feeling to finally have raced and done it. I’m through that one now – the first event of the Games.

``It’s been a long four years and this has been a tough year, so I’m glad I got a medal here. All the hard work has paid off.’’

Coach Brett Jones had a double celebration when Carlee Beattie took silver in the long jump (F46) after Patmore’s bronze.

``It was a great jump from Carlee. She was under a lot of pressure but she delivered,’’ Faichney said.

Beattie certainly did apply the blow torch to herself fouling her first two jumps and then her fourth.

``Initially I wasn’t too worried after the first one because it felt like a good jump. But then by third and fourth jumps I was starting to get a little frustrated and worried,’’ she said. ``I just wanted to get a jump on the board.

``I’m stoked with the silver medal – that’s amazing. But I’m not all that happy with my jumping. I know I can do better than that.’’

The last final on Sunday night was the one the whole stadium had stayed for, even though Oscar Pistorius had been beaten earlier in the night in the 200m (T44) by Alan Fonteles Cardoso Oliveira of Brazil.

Fearnley took on the world record holder for the 5000m (T54) Marcel Hug of Switzerland, and the home town favourite David Weir or Great Britain.

Weir took the honours with Fearnley happy with silver. Hug took bronze. Like Colman, Fearnley had taken the same medal in Beijing for the 5km after gold in Athens.

``I went as hard as was available to me on the day. I just wanted to stay near the front so when the attacks came, I was going to be there,’’ Fearnley said. ``On that last 50 he maxed out and I was hoping he’d slow up a little. He’s got some good legs, or arms, in him.

``I’m in pretty nick. With 250 to go I was feeling fairly confident `I’ve got this’. I was giving myself the whip and felt I could come home strong. Again he kicked on. The better man won on the night.’’

Faichney said the duel between the 10 quality wheelchair racers over 12 laps was magnificent theatre in an incredible stadium.

``That was unbelievable race. Not just between Kurt and David Weir but the whole field. The noise for the entire 5000m was amazing and it gave Weir a lift,’’ he said. ``But Kurt is a great competitor and raced extremely well. He should be proud of that performance and the result.’’

The third paragraph seems out of place. That there are media and Paralympic Committees at a Paralympic event isn't really noteworthy... it's sort of expected. Anyway, I've reviewed one of the other Paralympic stories, but I have to go out now. —Tom Morris (talk) 08:07, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

  • I've culled out the remark about security, I may cull more related to that part. --Brian McNeil / talk 09:43, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
