The tradition of the team newsletter continued for Sydney – in style

First introduced in 1988, the ‘in-house’ Australian team newsletter, ‘Banjo’s Bugle’, was produced daily during the 2000 Sydney Paralympics. For the first and only time, however, the newsletter was the sole responsibility of a member of the Australian team’s media unit. Each night, the newsletter was printed off-site and then delivered into the Village before dawn for distribution to team members. Outside the athletes’ Village, the newsletter was also delivered to sponsors and other supporters.
