Australia's Winning Edge
October 16, 2013, 10:23:24
Oz may have found the answer to the failures of Australia's rugby and cricket this year which have overshadowed some real Australian success stories...like um ..netball .
And due to the disappointing performance of the swimming team which was a major contributing factor to Australia's poor display at last year's London Olympics, where the country finished 10th on the medals table.....
The Winning Edge project was subsequently launched late last year with the additional goals of getting Australia back into the top five in the medal's table at the Summer Olympics and Paralympics, top 15 at the Winter Games and number one at the Commonwealth Games.
Since the launch of Winning Edge, Australian sport is making dramatic changes to get back on top in world sport illustrated by the Australian cricket team's loss 4-0 to India and 3-0 to England in test series this year...
The national men's football team also lost two of its last three matches 6-0 to powerhouses Brazil and France but has qualified for next year's World Cup finals,
....while the Australian rugby union team were beaten 2-1 in a series against the British and Irish Lions, not to mention getting their butts kicked by the ABs and the Springboks (for the very first time at Suncorp) in the southern hemisphere's Rugby Championship.
Hopefully for Redsman the Kangaroos can restore some pride Australians have in sport next month and show us they still have ...the winning edge.
