I mentioned in the recent post Wet Ghost that I received a lot of memorabilia from Australia. One such item was a newspaper clipping from my youth when I won and broke the record at the Australian National All-Schools Athletic championship. I recalled in another post called The Telegram how a school friend sent me a humorous telegram congratulating me on the victory.
Today I present to you the ‘actual’ newspaper clipping which highlighted the back-page sports section of the Hawkesbury Gazette. Also because you all seem like nice folk I’ll add another clipping from another local rag where I used to Holiday with my grandmother. They were similarly impressed… I have few claims to fame, but as Charles Bukowski put it, ‘Hey baby, when I write, I’m the hero of my shit’.
Solo quiero decir que me siento muy orgullosa de conocerte.
Igualmente querida mía!
This is so cool! It’s great to have this as a reminder. 16 seconds off the school record…that is great and 3 off the national record is even better. That was nice of you giving your brother his credit.
Thanks Max! I was always looking forward to getting the article so I could complement my other ‘Trax’ post.
