Aussie Olympic Great Kevin Berry Needs Your Prayers and Support

SYDNEY, September 12.

RE: Kevin Berry

OLYMPIC gold medalist from Tokyo in 1964, Australian swimming historian, former SMH photographer, ABC Sports TV chief, author and all-round good guy Kevin Berry is on Struggle Street at the moment, having lost most of the sight in his right eye and his balance.

You might say he's just come off the third turn in the 200m butterfly and swallowed a rather large mouthful of water, but he's not giving in.

He's a butterflyer and in swimming circles they don't come any tougher.

Big Kev's actually confined to the change rooms for the moment but has access to his computer and would like to hear from as many of his swimming friends, coaches, swimmers and media colleagues as possible.

So send your best wishes and thoughts to Kevin Berry at
