ONE of our esteemed letter writers today makesa good point about how Australians and our media are quick to label sporting starsas heroes.
Too often we overlook the real heroes like ourdoctors and nurses, our armed forces, the parents who set the example at home andon the sidelines and in the canteens at sports and community events, thevolunteers and people who rally at emergency and accident sites every hour of everyday, and many more.
Without underpinning the work that theabovementioned do in our community, the three sport stars who paraded down HortonStreet at the weekend deserved every accolade that came their way.
Sport is a field of dreams and a way ofinspiring a healthy and active lifestyle. The hidden hard yards that RyleyBatt, James Magnussen and Janel Manns have completed just to represent
their country is an example to every child outthere to reach for their dreams no matter what obstacles lie in their paths.
