After the amazing performances of our athletes at the Olympics and Paralympics, we think it’s timely to celebrate some sporting achievements closer to home.
If you are a client, volunteer, supporter or staff member of the Crows Nest Centre, we want to hear about your greatest sporting moment.
You might have been part of a winning football or croquet team, conquered Heartbreak Hill to complete the City to Surf or triumphed in your local backyard cricket championship.
Whether you achieved fame, a pat on the back or have an amusing or embarrassing sporting anecdote, we’d love to know.
Send us your story (up to 250 words) with a photo or short video by Thursday 30 September and you could score a place in our Moments of Sporting Fame booklet.
Just submit your story using the form below and upload your photo or video. Alternatively, you can send it to us via email or snail mail:
