Australian boccia players Kris Bignall (left) and Tu Huynh with the bronze medals they won in the C1 WAD pairs competition at the 1996 Paralympic Games. The pair, who had nicknamed themselves the “Gruesome Twosome” in an attempt to psych out their opponents, look far from gruesome with their medals around their necks. Their bronze medal was the first and – as at 2019 – only Paralympic boccia medal won by Australia.
