Sydney Olympic Park, The Sprinter

The Sprinter is a metallic monument at Sydney Olympic Park at Homebush Bay. It was originally installed in 1998, on top of Sydney Tower in the city, with two other figures for the Sydney Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2000. The sprinter was relocated here in 2002, while the other two sculptures, a gymnast and a Paralympic basketballer, were reloacted to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.
