Vale Murray Rose

It’s with great sadness that we note this evening the passing of Olympic swimming legend Murray Rose.

Read the Sydney Morning Herald report (click here).

Mr Rose died of Leukaemia aged 73.

On a personal note, I remember fondly the day that he presented me with my bid volunteers pin at the old bid company headquarters in Kent Street.  It was truly an honor to meet such a wonderful ambassador for sport and such a complete gentleman.
