Description

Remembering Amy is the story of the talented and courageous athlete whose tragic death during a training ride in Germany shocked the nation. When news of Amy Gillett's fatal accident broke, millions of Australians were deeply shocked. Amy, one of our talented but little-known athletes, had died far from home while representing her country. The Australian women's road cycling team were on a training ride in Germany prior to a race when they were hit by an out-of-control car. Amy was killed, and her team-mates, Katie Brown, Lorian Graham, Kate Nichols, Alexis Rhodes and Louise Yaxley, were all seriously injured. Remembering Amy is the untold story of the hardworking and ambitious Australian athletes who aren't in the spotlight, and their courage, determination and passion for their sports. It is also about a warm, vibrant and determined young woman whose life symbolised the very best about Australian sport - going as hard as you can and never giving up.
