Best of Lillehammer 1994

30 Sep 2010

Lillehammer is remembered as the Games in which Australia celebrated its first Winter Olympic medal. It was the men’s short track speed skating relay team of Steven Bradbury, Richard Nizielski, Andrew Murtha and Kieran Hansen who raced to the elusive medal, winning bronze in their event. (Reserve John Kah was also part of the team, but did not receive a medal.) It ended Australia’s 58-year drought of Winter Games involvement without a medal.
