    Default Sportsmanship

    In the spirit of Emil Zatopek:

    In 1966 Zátopek hosted the Australian Ron Clarke when he visited Prague for a race. Zátopek knew the bad luck that Clarke had faced; he held many middle distance track and field world records and had attempted to join his idol in the record books, but had fallen short in winning an Olympic gold medal (he was beaten by Billy Mills in one of the biggest upsets in Olympic history). At the end of the visit, Zátopek gave one of his gold medals from the 1952 Olympics to Clarke. (Sourced from Wiki.)

    We can easily redress the calamity that was landed on the New Zealand cricket team at the World Cup Final.

    Australia has 5 world cups and certainly could spare one for our friends across the ditch.
