The spirit of the XXVII games continued until the summer of 2000 when 10 years ago, on a spring evening - the Games of the New Millennium opened to the sounds of cracking whips as a reproduction of the Man from Snowy River came thundering into the main arena. On Thursday, we reminisced as the 10 year anniversary dawned - so many wonderful memories of not only a city and country united but the world ... if only we could capture that spirit globally once again.
We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own. -- Ben Sweetland
