It’s the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, and Australian sporting history is in the making. 

Among the legends are Thorpe, Freeman and the Oarsome Foursome.

Long-jumper Jai Taurima stunned on the track and field team, winning silver with a jump of 8.49 metres.

Not far away, gymnast Ji Wallace dazzled crowds on the trampoline, also taking home a silver medal.

Both Jumping J(a)is, both taking silver.

But Ji Wallace told Neil Breen this morning the connection between the athletes goes deeper.

“That’s unbelievable,” Neil remarked.
