Jane Saville - Australian Race Walker

Jane Saville was ready to set the Sydney Stadium alight for the second time in a matter of hours. Cathy Freeman had raced to Gold the night before and Saville was thriving in the glow when she found herself in the lead of the Women's 20km Race Walk. With only metres to go, Saville found herself faced with a third red card. This is the story of one of the most difficult decisions in race walking history.
