For many the dream begins at an early age and over many years the commitment to be the best in their chosen sport drives them onwards. For many their dream will become a reality but for some it will never be. On this walk we meet John Stanley Nicholes who became a weightlifting champion before he became a major pioneer of the application of weight training and conditioning of athletes around the world. Charles Lawrence who as Captain Coach took the first Aboriginal Cricket team to England in 1868. Richard Henry Whitecross whose dream it was to become a Professional Golfer didn’t eventuate and Jennifer Anne Zeffert was a gifted junior swimmer representing Victoria in the Australian Championships.
