MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, August 28, 2008 15 NEWS Western Suburbs Orchid Society turned on a colourful show at Ashfield last weekend. The Orchid Spectacular event showcased more than 200 orchids. Visit www.innerwestweekly.com.au for more pictures. PHIL BLATCH ~PP183341 Orchids are bloomin' gorgeous A swimmer's tale FORMER Olympic swimmer Lisa Forrest will tell her amazing story at Canterbury Council's next author's talk on Friday. Forrest was only 16 years old when she found herself at the centre of the contro- versial boycott of the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow, in response to the USSR's invasion of Afghanistan. As one of the country's youngest captains of our women's swim team, Forrest faced extraordinary pressure and unprecedented public criticism after the Australian Olympic Federation refused the boycott. The author, broadcaster and actor re- counts the rift in her latest book, Boycott, featuring interviews with the significant players, including former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser, AOF executives, journal- ists and athletes. Forrest retired from her professional swimming career at 19, with two gold medals from the 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane. The author's talk will be held at Campsie Library, 14-28 Amy Street, on Friday, August 22, at 1pm. The talk is free but bookings are essential. Phone 9789 9558.
