Best Answer

The names of all Australian Olympic Track and Field gold medallists are:- Marjorie Jackson, Shirley Strickland De La Hunty, Betty Cuthbert, Maureen Caird, Fleur Mellor, Norma Croker, Glenis Nunn, Debbie Flintoff-King, Catherine Freeman, Steve Hooker, Ralph Doubell, Herb Elliott, John Winter, Nick Winter, and Edwin Flack. Stan Rowley also won an Olympic gold medal in 1900. He represented Australia in the sprints, and Great Britain in the cross-country for which he was awarded gold. For that matter, Australia was federated in 1901, five years after Flack's victories, and after federation continued to operate at the Olympics as AUSTRALASIA, i.e. combined with New Zealand. In all, 256 Australians are proud bearers of Olympic Gold Medal, but in track and field, they are the hardest medals of all to win. All honour to our 16 Olympic track and field gold medallists.
