Warren Lawton dives to save a penalty throw during goalball at the Sydney summer Paralympics. Penalty throws in goalball are defended by a single player, who – with no vision – has to cover the entire 9m of the goal against a ball thrown at speeds of more than 70kmh. Lawton was NAIDOC sportsperson of the year in 2001.
