THERE ARE SO MANY BUT KIERAN PERKINS 1500M GOLD MEDAL SWIM IN THE 96 OLYMPICS IS PRETTY SPECIAL. ONLY JUST MAKING THE FINAL AND THAN WINNING FROM LANE 8 AND ALSO YOU CANT BEAT CATHY FREEMANS  GOLDMEDAL 400M PERFORMANCE IN 2000 BUT I THINK MY ALL TIME FAMOUS IS ERIC "THE EEL' AT THE SYDNEY GAMES I THINK THAT MOMENT WAS JUST WHAT THE SPIRIT OF THE GAMES IS ALL ABOUT
