Two legends of Australian sport will be recounting their trials and
triumphs in their sporting careers over lunch at the Coolum Surf Life
Saving Club this Friday 23 September.
The King of Australian Boxing, Johnny Lewis and one of the greatest football players of all time, Graeme ‘Changa’ Langlands will head up the entertainment at a sportsman’s lunch already expecting well in excess of 140 people attending.
Johnny Lewis is best known for his work training six boxing world champions including Kostya Tszyu, Jeff Fenech, Jeff Harding, Gairy St. Clair, Virgil Hill and Paul Briggs. He served as coach for the Australian boxing teams during the 1989 world championship and 1990 Commonwealth Games and also spent the early part of the 1990s as trainer for Australian rugby league teams.
In 2006 Johnny was inducted into the Australian Boxing Hall of Fame, the same year he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for services to boxing and rugby league in the Australia Day honours list.
Graeme ‘Changa’ Langlands is a legend of the NRL code and recognised as one of the greatest footballers of all time. He was the last of the captain coaches and respected by everyone who played with him, and against him. By the time Changa retired, he had racked up an impressive career as the most capped player for the Australian national team with 45 from 1963 to 1975, and captained his country in 15 test matches and world cup games.
