An Australian Icon

I had the privilege this week of meeting and photographing an Australian Olympic legend, Cathy Freeman. Cathy is an Olympic Gold Medallist and has represented Australia and won medals in many international running events. She is well known for her victory lap draped in the Aboriginal flag, a symbol, as she said, of her origins and one of the most Australian things she has done.
I was asked by Penguin Publishing to cover the official launch of her autobiography, Born to Run. For a woman who has seen and stood in so much limelight, this friendly and unassuming lady was so unaccustomed to it, and her humble, natural manner was refreshing and new. I asked my old friend and offsider, Greg, to take a picture of the two of us.
