Grant Hester – Sprint Cup, Erina 2008


Last night during Sprint Cup at the Erina ice rink my son, Sebastian managed to take first place in sub junior category. Needless to say I am very proud of him. He has been training under a watchful eye of Andrew McNee since last November. Taking into account his brief involvement in short track speed skating I think this is an excellent progress.

Fatherly pride aside the night belonged to Grant Hester in his bright yellow skin suit. Grant, in this short track speed skating event, blitzed everyone and in the process posted what probably is the fastest 500m this year in Australia at 45.3s. Well done Grant.

I’ve given you everything I had


I took this photograph of a crying woman few days ago. She was visibly, deeply disturbed by something. She was shouting aloud “I’ve given you everything I had, You gave me nothing I wanted”. She drew a lot of attention from everyone present. She kept yelling that phrase over and over as she walked through the Pitt Street Mall.
