Rod Hacon’s family came to cheer him on

“Rocket” Rod Hacon poses with members of his family and Australian Team Chef de Mission Ron Finneran (centre) at the start of the 1992 Albertville Paralympic Winter Games. They were the first winter Games where the Australian Team was well supported by a good number of team officials, as well as family and friends, demonstrating how support for the winter program had grown and matured since Ron Finneran paid his own way to travel alone to Sweden for the first Games just 16 years before.
