Cliff Young - Australian Icon

The idea of driving from Sydney to Melbourne fills many Australians with a sense of dread given the distance and featureless landscape. So the Australian imagination was captured when ultra long distance runners competed to run the city to city race. One competitor in particular drew curious attention due to his unique running style, interview technique and attire. Cliff Young gave so much of himself in this race and, in turn, gave Australia a legendary sporting icon.
