What Aussie male swimmer has won the most Olympic gold?

My apologies... Ian Thorpe won five Olympic gold medals, the most won by any Australian. I'm chucking that reference book out the window. JennyF again! The quinella this time!


The capital of which country has the territories of Tokelau, Niue and the Ross Dependency?

The "Penguin News" is the local newspaper of which British territory? [Correction to previous trivia. Question should have read "lightning war".]

In 2003, George Bush used the term “Shock and Awe” but who used the term “Speed and Surprise”?

Larry your wrong>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Ian Thorpe is the most decorated Australian Olympian of all time, in terms of gold and total medals. His three gold and two silver at the 2000 Summer Olympics are the largest in a single Olympics by an Australian.[8]
Dawn Fraser and Murray Rose jointly held the previous records for gold medals, and Fraser the record of eight medals in total, prior to Thorpe.[88]

I was on the SIAC pooldeck when the Thorpedo won his first Olympic Gold Medal .. I was there less than an hour later when he won his second Gold. He was very humble and very professional in contrast with the current crop of miscreants.

Bugger ....Got me again Jenny.
