For anyone who experienced the magic of the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games, be they spectators, viewers, volunteers, athletes or officials, Sydney Olympic Park will always be a very special place.

It was at Sydney Olympic Park that Ian Thorpe and Cathy Freeman beat the world (words from John Coates AC).
