About

Ian aims to provide his own unique perspective.

This comes from a lifelong passion covering many and varied sporting activities world-wide concerning balls of all shapes and sizes to those involving pure individual achievement and effort, together with the enjoyment that comes with observing the sporting characters that make this all the more fun.

He has attended many major international events including World Cups in Cricket, Soccer/Football and Rugby Union but nothing was better than the two biggies at Sydney's Olympic Stadium.

For him witnessing Cathy Freeman's 400m final at Sydney 2000 was right up there for its sheer exhilaration, passion and excitement.

But nothing quite beats the experience of watching John Aloisi sink that penalty against the hapless Uruguayans to get the Socceroos through to Germany 32 years after their first appearance in the World Cup in 1974.
