Louise Sauvage—legend

Louise Sauvage became the first paralympian and 41st member of the Sport Australia Hall of Fame to achieve legend status on Thursday 10 October 2019.

The nine-time gold medalist achieved several world records on the track and 11 world titles, plus four Boston Marathon wins.

“It should be that Para-sport athletes can be seen and considered in the same light and be recognised in the same manner, so to be elevated is just huge.” Louise Sauvage said.

“It’s tremendous and to be thought of alongside some of Australia’s great athletes, it’s just amazing company to be alongside them.” Louise Sauvage said.
