Decathlete Peter John Winter first represented Australia at the World Junior Championships in 1990. He further represented at the World Student Games in 1993. He was a Commonwealth Games silver medallist in 1994 in Victoria, Canada and first broke the Australian Record with 8074 points at that competition. He broke this record again whilst qualifying for the 1996 Summer Olympics with 8084 points after taking a year off due to an operation for a knee problem. He then competed at the 1996 Olympics in the decathlon, only to record 3 no jumps in the long jump. He was coached by highly credentialed former Ukrainian coach Efim Shuravetsky before self coaching from 1994-1996. He now has a mentoree relationship with Efim.

Alison Inverarity was selected to compete at the Games after winning the Olympic trials in August with a best clearance of 1.85 metres. Inverarity’s international career began with victory in the World Student Games in 1991. The same year she made her first senior World Championships team, making the final and finishing 11th in Tokyo.
The following year she was sensational at her Olympic debut, finishing eighth in Barcelona. In 1994 she enjoyed a successful European season, which included a jump of 1.98m to set a new Australian and Commonwealth record. She took that form into the Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Canada, and despite some nerves, she won gold. Her domestic season in 1995 was excellent as she was defeated only once, she moved to Melbourne to link up with coaches Sandro Bisetto and Efim Shuravetsky.
From there she won the national title in 1998 and won bronze at the Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur. In March last year she won her seventh national high jump title, securing a place in the team for the World Championships in Seville.
