    Ralph Doubell

    Ralph Doubell

    Responsible for THE MOST EPIC Aussie 800m victory EVER, Ralph won our last male track gold medal at an Olympics over 50 YEARS AGO … the time he ran that day was so fast it would have got him gold in 5 of the following 10 Olympics, what’s more that time was only just recently taken by another Aussie, a certain Mr Bol.  Learn what made Ralph tough, race strategy ready, mentally prepared, hear what he thinks our athletes need to do to succeed & why he brushed his teeth with beer at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico.  Step back in time & take a look at how hard work, sheer determination & belief in being a world class old school athlete paid off for this Aussie legend.
