"Eight Women" is a contemporary sculpture created by Imants Tillers, in Cathy Freeman Park at Sydney Olympic Park. It celebrates the eight women who were involved in lighting the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games Cauldron. A ceremonial medley of seven of Australia's greatest female Olympic athletes carried the Torch in the Opening Ceremony to light the Olympic Cauldron, as a tribute to a century of women's participation in the Olympic Games. They were Betty Cuthbert, Raelene Boyle, Dawn Fraser, Shirley Strickland, Shane Gould, Debbie Flintoff-King, and Cathy Freeman. The eighth woman represented is Australian Paralympian, Louise Sauvage, who ignited the Paralympic Cauldron. Since the London 2012 Olympics are currently being held, I thought I would share this Sydney Olympic themed monument now.
