Sydney Olympic Park’s most memorable moments since 2000

Sydney Olympic Park’s most memorable moments since 2000
November 18, 2015

In ongoing celebrations of this year's 15th anniversary of Sydney Olympic Park, where thousands of events have been staged since the closing ceremony of the 'best Games ever', Sydney Olympic Park Authority has revealed results of an online poll about the Park's most memorable moments since the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The top three most voted memorable moments since the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games include:

1. The Aussie Diamonds' win against New Zealand to claim the Netball World Cup Sydney 2015 Champions title at Allphones Arena (August 2015)

2. Royal Tour at the Sydney Royal Easter Show at Sydney Showground (April 2014)

3. South Sydney Rabbitohs' 'fairytale' win against the Bulldogs in the NRL Grand Final at ANZ Stadium (October 2014)

Other events which ranked among the most memorable at Sydney Olympic Park include the concert events of global music superstars including Katy Perry (2014), AC/DC (2014), Justin Timberlake (2007) and One Direction (2013) in addition to epic moments of Australian sport such as the World Cup Qualifier (2005), the AFC Asian Cup Final (2015) and the Rugby Grand Final match between Australia's Wallabies and the British Lions (2001).

On topping the list of most memorable moments at Olympic Park, Netball World Cup Chief Executive, Marne Fechner stated “it's an absolute honour to be voted the people's choice. Given the amazing array of moments there have been over the years, it is truly very humbling.

"The Park, netball and its fans share a longstanding relationship, from grassroots to elite levels, and this honour is the icing on the cake.”

The poll was conducted in the past month via the Sydney Olympic Park website and Facebook.

Offering 10 world-class major venues, more than 30 dining options, five hotels, a growing business and residential community, heritage-listed Newington Armory, beautiful parklands and award-winning sustainability practices, Sydney Olympic Park continues to be the place where memorable moments are made.
