‘Walk Star Shares His Successes’ – Hawkesbury Gazette

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’.

    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.
