The goalball get under way and Rob Crestani unleashes

Rob Crestani throws during a goalball match at the Sydney Summer Paralympics. Male goalballers can throw the large, heavy ball at more than 60kmh across the 18m of the court to the three players on the opposition team, who use sound to detect the ball and their bodies to stop it from crossing the goal line. The Australian men’s goalball team finished ninth of 12 teams at the 2000 Games.
