Cathy Freeman standing in front of a cascade of water lighting a cauldron and the 49.11 seconds it took her to win the 400m final at the Olympic Games Sydney 2000 are some of the most impactful moments in sporting history. Images of the Australian, who is of Aboriginal descent, clad in her distinctive suits, are instantly recognisable the world over.
