Olympians

Click on the individual’s name to see a profile.

The club has had several members achieve selection to compete at the Olympic Games. In 1956, just after the club was formed, Rod Johnson & Neville Sayers were the club’s first representatives to be selected competing in our home town games in Melbourne. Since then we have had representatives at several Olympic Games, and in 2004 we had our strongest representation ever with 6 club members achieving selection for the Olympic Games.

Special mention should be made of Alex Parygin who was the Olympic champion whilst competing for Khazakstan in Modern Pentathlon at the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996.

National Champions

The club’s members have enjoyed many successes at the National Championships. Our first National Championship winner was Neville Sayers who was also a multiple Olympian. Rifle shooting came into the club in 1994, and our first rifle champion was Kim Frazer, also an Olympian and multiple Commonwealth Games representative. Since the early years of the club in the 1950’s we have had many multiple champions, some of whom have also gone on to represent Australia at Olympic and Commonwealth Games. Particular mention should be made of Susan McCready who has been dominant in the rifle events in the recent times. We recognise all our national champions’ achievements in this honour roll which can also be found on display at the clubrooms.
