Anyone remember the celebration by Aussie Michael Klem (sp?) in Sydney 2000 when they beat us?

Ooh, yeah. That was an absolutely inspired piece of sledging!

In context though, it happened because that Gary Hall guy from the US had been saying all week prior to the event in Sydney that the Americans were going to "play the Australians like guitars" in the event. Got a lot of press, and more than a few Aussies were a bit cranky about the comments.

So when the Aussies flogged the US, it was probably the most natural thing in the world to do a little "professional air guitar" playing poolside.

Worked for us, anyway!

Primm

PS It's "Klim".
