What they said
He’s been super. We need 10 more Ricciardo’s.
Bernie Ecclestone on Red Bull Racing superstar Daniel Ricciardo
CEO, Formula One Group
Tennis Australia sat me down and said if you want to do this, we’ll support you. And I said, ‘I don’t want to be supported like a wheelchair tennis player, I want to be supported as a tennis player like Nick Kyrgios is, or Sam Stosur is. I don’t care that I’m in a wheelchair. If you treat me equally to them, I’ll do it’. And they did, and they gave me everything that I wanted. They treat me as if I am Roger Federer.
Dylan Alcott OAM
World Number 1 Quad Singles Tennis Player and Paralympic Gold Medallist
In our organisation when we put people on, the number one thing we look at is their work ethic and then we will look at their character, then we will look at how they do their role. Working hard is not just flogging yourself every day. If I can’t answer a question about a player, about what he did at the weekend or what an opposition might do in this situation, or go into meetings or a video session and the clips are not in the right order, that just shows I’m not working hard, so why should they work hard.
Head Coach, Melbourne Storm
I’m calm and collected when I need to be, but why not put on a smile.
Gold Medallist, Men's Pole Vault - 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games
I’ve never known a personality like him, frankly. (Ricciardo) is unbelieveable. When he signs somebody’s program, he does it with passion and he looks them in the eye and he gives them that huge smile. He really believes in what he is doing. So that smile speaks volumes about the man himself.

George Smith is the best player I have ever seen.
Former Wallabies Head Coach
It’s incredibly exciting to see Ella coming through and shining so much. It is one of those things in sport, everything hinges on self-belief. You can train and put in the hours but it is about being able to deliver mentally, as well as physically. Once you have that believe, anything is possible. Once you start running against the best in the world, they’re going to push you onwards and upwards aswell.
Melinda Gainsford-Taylor on track sprinter, Ella Nelson
Australian 100m and 200m record holder
He’s the best coach I’ve ever had and someone I have the utmost respect for. He’s a mentor in a lot of ways and someone I hold in the highest regard. He’s got an amazing work ethic. Sometimes he needs to give you a kick up the bum, and other times he’s there as a sort of father figure. He’s the best coach I’ve ever dealt with.
Brett Finch on coach Craig Bellamy
Former Melbourne Storm and NSW State of Origin player
I’ve worked really hard in the gym and on speed and change of direction. I think I’m in the best shape of my career.
Vice Captain, NSW Swifts and Australian Diamonds Squad member
This is only the beginning! I’ve always been determined. As a girl, I used to have posters of the big powerful track sprinters on my bedroom wall and I’d think – I want to be like that. I was always competitive with my brother – we’d even race to finish dinner. I still want to make another Olympic Games, I’d like to continue my work as a nurse…my dream would be to work for the UN in world aid. I’d also like to return to the track one day after rugby. I’ve heard that women in their thirties peak. I also want to be a positive role model for island girls. I was a village girl at one stage, too.
Ellia Green OAM
Gold Medallist, Women's Rugby 7s - 2016 Rio Olympic Games
When I was 13 or 14, I got my first ever contract. I became pro and I won basically every competition I entered. The US Open, European Open…I was the best junior in the world. No one could beat me. Then I had to learn how to make it in the men’s category. It has taken some time but now I am getting there.
World Champion Snowboarder
Kim’s fitness is incredible, but it’s not her only attribute. Her attacking play is impeccable, and the fact that she averages less than two turnovers per game is astonishing, given how often she handles the ball.
