Yesterday, at Federation Square the City of Melbourne celebrated our Olympic Athletes who have returned form London. Hundreds of people turned out to cheer on their favourite athletes. Gold medal winners Anna Meares and Sally Pearson were the headline acts at Federation Square.
Sydney became the first Australian city to officially welcome home Olympic athletes on Monday, and Brisbane will hold a parade on Friday. Buoyed by the reception, star athletes in Melbourne say it has spurred them on to compete again at Rio in 2016.
The crowd got into the spirit of things by wearing blue wigs, waving boxing kangaroo flags and cheering loudly as the athletes filed past. Melbourne once again lived up to its name as the sporting capital of Australia.
