Australia at the Vancouver Winter Paralympics 2010

The lead up to the Vancouver Games was the most expansive, extensive and comprehensive in winter Paralympic history for an Australian team. There was a new system of team selection with published nomination and selection criteria, and ability to formally appeal. Australia also sent the largest contingent of support staff to Vancouver. The support staff was matched by an extensive Australian media contingent. The APC communications division implemented a ‚ÄėRoad to Vancouver Media Plan‚Äô, which maximised experience from previous games, existing expertise and opportunities in new media.

 

Performance:

Eleven Australian athletes competed in Vancouver. The Australian team returned home with one silver and two bronze medals, finishing 13th on the total medal tally.

Jessica Gallagher became Australia’s first female medallist in Paralympic Winter history, winning bronze in the women’s slalom event on the first day of alpine competition. Prior to this medal, all of Australia’s 24 medals at Paralympic Winter Games had been won by men.

Of course, there were fireworks

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics ended in the traditional way – with fireworks.

The crowds lined the streets of Torino

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics began with a parade through the streets of Torino (Turin). The locals turned out in numbers to watch the end of a month of Olympic and Paralympic sport.

Time to hand over to the next generation (of one legged skiers)

Michael Milton, who had won his last medal, was selected to carry the Australian flag for the closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics. However, Milton asked that Toby Kane, who had won his first medal in Torino, carry the flag. It was a symbolic handing over to the new generation of skiers. Like Milton, Kane is a one legged skier.

It was the end of a long journey for Milto and his family

Born into a skiing family, Michael Milton starting skiing from the time he could walk. Losing his leg to cancer aged nine, didn’t stop his love of skiing. He represented Australia at his first Paralympics, aged 14, in 1988, retired briefly in the 90s, then returned to win a clean sweep of all events in his class at the 2002 winter Games. In 2006, his family and his partner Penny were there for one more Games and some more Milto magic on the slopes.

Of course, there were fireworks

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics ended in the traditional way – with fireworks.

The crowds lined the streets of Torino

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics began with a parade through the streets of Torino (Turin). The locals turned out in numbers to watch the end of a month of Olympic and Paralympic sport.

Time to hand over to the next generation (of one legged skiers)

Michael Milton, who had won his last medal, was selected to carry the Australian flag for the closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics. However, Milton asked that Toby Kane, who had won his first medal in Torino, carry the flag. It was a symbolic handing over to the new generation of skiers. Like Milton, Kane is a one legged skier.

It was the end of a long journey for Milto and his family

Born into a skiing family, Michael Milton starting skiing from the time he could walk. Losing his leg to cancer aged nine, didn’t stop his love of skiing. He represented Australia at his first Paralympics, aged 14, in 1988, retired briefly in the 90s, then returned to win a clean sweep of all events in his class at the 2002 winter Games. In 2006, his family and his partner Penny were there for one more Games and some more Milto magic on the slopes.

Australia at the Vancouver Winter Paralympics 2010

The lead up to the Vancouver Games was the most expansive, extensive and comprehensive in winter Paralympic history for an Australian team. There was a new system of team selection with published nomination and selection criteria, and ability to formally appeal. Australia also sent the largest contingent of support staff to Vancouver. The support staff was matched by an extensive Australian media contingent. The APC communications division implemented a ‚ÄėRoad to Vancouver Media Plan‚Äô, which maximised experience from previous games, existing expertise and opportunities in new media.

 

Performance:

Eleven Australian athletes competed in Vancouver. The Australian team returned home with one silver and two bronze medals, finishing 13th on the total medal tally.

Jessica Gallagher became Australia’s first female medallist in Paralympic Winter history, winning bronze in the women’s slalom event on the first day of alpine competition. Prior to this medal, all of Australia’s 24 medals at Paralympic Winter Games had been won by men.

Of course, there were fireworks

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics ended in the traditional way – with fireworks.

The crowds lined the streets of Torino

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics began with a parade through the streets of Torino (Turin). The locals turned out in numbers to watch the end of a month of Olympic and Paralympic sport.

Time to hand over to the next generation (of one legged skiers)

Michael Milton, who had won his last medal, was selected to carry the Australian flag for the closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics. However, Milton asked that Toby Kane, who had won his first medal in Torino, carry the flag. It was a symbolic handing over to the new generation of skiers. Like Milton, Kane is a one legged skier.

It was the end of a long journey for Milto and his family

Born into a skiing family, Michael Milton starting skiing from the time he could walk. Losing his leg to cancer aged nine, didn’t stop his love of skiing. He represented Australia at his first Paralympics, aged 14, in 1988, retired briefly in the 90s, then returned to win a clean sweep of all events in his class at the 2002 winter Games. In 2006, his family and his partner Penny were there for one more Games and some more Milto magic on the slopes.

Australia at the Vancouver Winter Paralympics 2010

The lead up to the Vancouver Games was the most expansive, extensive and comprehensive in winter Paralympic history for an Australian team. There was a new system of team selection with published nomination and selection criteria, and ability to formally appeal. Australia also sent the largest contingent of support staff to Vancouver. The support staff was matched by an extensive Australian media contingent. The APC communications division implemented a ‚ÄėRoad to Vancouver Media Plan‚Äô, which maximised experience from previous games, existing expertise and opportunities in new media.

 

Performance:

Eleven Australian athletes competed in Vancouver. The Australian team returned home with one silver and two bronze medals, finishing 13th on the total medal tally.

Jessica Gallagher became Australia’s first female medallist in Paralympic Winter history, winning bronze in the women’s slalom event on the first day of alpine competition. Prior to this medal, all of Australia’s 24 medals at Paralympic Winter Games had been won by men.

Australia at the Vancouver Winter Paralympics 2010

The lead up to the Vancouver Games was the most expansive, extensive and comprehensive in winter Paralympic history for an Australian team. There was a new system of team selection with published nomination and selection criteria, and ability to formally appeal. Australia also sent the largest contingent of support staff to Vancouver. The support staff was matched by an extensive Australian media contingent. The APC communications division implemented a ‚ÄėRoad to Vancouver Media Plan‚Äô, which maximised experience from previous games, existing expertise and opportunities in new media.

 

Performance:

Eleven Australian athletes competed in Vancouver. The Australian team returned home with one silver and two bronze medals, finishing 13th on the total medal tally.

Jessica Gallagher became Australia’s first female medallist in Paralympic Winter history, winning bronze in the women’s slalom event on the first day of alpine competition. Prior to this medal, all of Australia’s 24 medals at Paralympic Winter Games had been won by men.

Of course, there were fireworks

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics ended in the traditional way – with fireworks.

The crowds lined the streets of Torino

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics began with a parade through the streets of Torino (Turin). The locals turned out in numbers to watch the end of a month of Olympic and Paralympic sport.

Time to hand over to the next generation (of one legged skiers)

Michael Milton, who had won his last medal, was selected to carry the Australian flag for the closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics. However, Milton asked that Toby Kane, who had won his first medal in Torino, carry the flag. It was a symbolic handing over to the new generation of skiers. Like Milton, Kane is a one legged skier.

It was the end of a long journey for Milto and his family

Born into a skiing family, Michael Milton starting skiing from the time he could walk. Losing his leg to cancer aged nine, didn’t stop his love of skiing. He represented Australia at his first Paralympics, aged 14, in 1988, retired briefly in the 90s, then returned to win a clean sweep of all events in his class at the 2002 winter Games. In 2006, his family and his partner Penny were there for one more Games and some more Milto magic on the slopes.

Of course, there were fireworks

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics ended in the traditional way – with fireworks.

The crowds lined the streets of Torino

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics began with a parade through the streets of Torino (Turin). The locals turned out in numbers to watch the end of a month of Olympic and Paralympic sport.

Time to hand over to the next generation (of one legged skiers)

Michael Milton, who had won his last medal, was selected to carry the Australian flag for the closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics. However, Milton asked that Toby Kane, who had won his first medal in Torino, carry the flag. It was a symbolic handing over to the new generation of skiers. Like Milton, Kane is a one legged skier.

It was the end of a long journey for Milto and his family

Born into a skiing family, Michael Milton starting skiing from the time he could walk. Losing his leg to cancer aged nine, didn’t stop his love of skiing. He represented Australia at his first Paralympics, aged 14, in 1988, retired briefly in the 90s, then returned to win a clean sweep of all events in his class at the 2002 winter Games. In 2006, his family and his partner Penny were there for one more Games and some more Milto magic on the slopes.

Australia at the Vancouver Winter Paralympics 2010

The lead up to the Vancouver Games was the most expansive, extensive and comprehensive in winter Paralympic history for an Australian team. There was a new system of team selection with published nomination and selection criteria, and ability to formally appeal. Australia also sent the largest contingent of support staff to Vancouver. The support staff was matched by an extensive Australian media contingent. The APC communications division implemented a ‚ÄėRoad to Vancouver Media Plan‚Äô, which maximised experience from previous games, existing expertise and opportunities in new media.

 

Performance:

Eleven Australian athletes competed in Vancouver. The Australian team returned home with one silver and two bronze medals, finishing 13th on the total medal tally.

Jessica Gallagher became Australia’s first female medallist in Paralympic Winter history, winning bronze in the women’s slalom event on the first day of alpine competition. Prior to this medal, all of Australia’s 24 medals at Paralympic Winter Games had been won by men.

Of course, there were fireworks

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics ended in the traditional way – with fireworks.

The crowds lined the streets of Torino

The closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics began with a parade through the streets of Torino (Turin). The locals turned out in numbers to watch the end of a month of Olympic and Paralympic sport.

Time to hand over to the next generation (of one legged skiers)

Michael Milton, who had won his last medal, was selected to carry the Australian flag for the closing ceremony of the Torino winter Paralympics. However, Milton asked that Toby Kane, who had won his first medal in Torino, carry the flag. It was a symbolic handing over to the new generation of skiers. Like Milton, Kane is a one legged skier.

It was the end of a long journey for Milto and his family

Born into a skiing family, Michael Milton starting skiing from the time he could walk. Losing his leg to cancer aged nine, didn’t stop his love of skiing. He represented Australia at his first Paralympics, aged 14, in 1988, retired briefly in the 90s, then returned to win a clean sweep of all events in his class at the 2002 winter Games. In 2006, his family and his partner Penny were there for one more Games and some more Milto magic on the slopes.

Australia at the Vancouver Winter Paralympics 2010

The lead up to the Vancouver Games was the most expansive, extensive and comprehensive in winter Paralympic history for an Australian team. There was a new system of team selection with published nomination and selection criteria, and ability to formally appeal. Australia also sent the largest contingent of support staff to Vancouver. The support staff was matched by an extensive Australian media contingent. The APC communications division implemented a ‚ÄėRoad to Vancouver Media Plan‚Äô, which maximised experience from previous games, existing expertise and opportunities in new media.

 

Performance:

Eleven Australian athletes competed in Vancouver. The Australian team returned home with one silver and two bronze medals, finishing 13th on the total medal tally.

Jessica Gallagher became Australia’s first female medallist in Paralympic Winter history, winning bronze in the women’s slalom event on the first day of alpine competition. Prior to this medal, all of Australia’s 24 medals at Paralympic Winter Games had been won by men.
