“I thought about it before,” he said of the celebration. “Usually I do a little more energetic celebration after a win but that’s, you know, probably more than punching or flexing muscles.

“It’s special to win but unfortunately I think it’s hard to be happy when all that’s gone.

“It makes the times challenging. I’m grateful to be human — enough to stand up and stop for a winter’s night. I hope this is a learning point for everyone. And I hope no one else goes through what I went through.”

The return will always fall short

Australia’s men’s triple grass bowlers came within inches of pulling off one of the greatest comebacks of all time, falling short of gold medal heartbreak.
