Olympians

The club has had several members achieve selection to compete at the Olympic Games. In 1956, just after the club was formed, Rod Johnson & Neville Sayers were the club’s first representatives to be selected competing in our home town games in Melbourne. Since then we have had representatives at several Olympic Games, and in 2004 we had our strongest representation ever with 6 club members achieving selection for the Olympic Games.

Special mention should be made of Alex Parygin who was the Olympic champion whilst competing for Khazakstan in Modern Pentathlon at the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996.
