Australia’s swimming great, Dawn Fraser, is returning to Japan to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics where she made history and captured the golden hat trick.

1500m freestyle Olympians Daniel Kowalski, John Konrads and Grant Hackett with 1500m Olympic hopefuls Matt Levings, Jordan Harrison and Mack Horton at the Murray Rose Tribute Dinner at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney on 26 November, 2013.

AOC: Imagine a room where you have Ian Thorpe and Herb Elliot deep in conversation; a table away three budding young 1500m swimmers are hanging on to Grant Hackett’s every word; Dawn Fraser is on the other side of the room reminiscing with teammates John Konrads and Sandra Morgan-Beavis; and London 2012 K4 gold medallist David Smith is down the back getting his Murray Rose book signed by 1956 and 1960 swim team captain John Devitt.

Swimming legend Dawn Fraser has been voted Australia's greatest ever female athlete at an awards ceremony in Canberra.

The London Underground has taken on a new look with Transport for London's Olympic Legends Map. Instead of Piccadilly Circus, Baker Street and Knightsbridge, the map has changed the names of 361 stations to celebrate Olympians.

Hop on the London Underground at Jesse Owens station. After one stop change at Carl Lewis. And then ride the Tube all the way to Michael Phelps.
