Six Olympians named in Sport Aus Hall of Fame

Six olympians have been inducted into the Sport Australian Hall of Fame.

Dual gold medallist Anna Meares heads up the list that also includes hockey legend Jamie Dwyer, long-distance runner Steve Moneghetti, "Mr Water Polo" Tom Hoad, dual world champion hurdler Jana Pittman, and former Australia men's soccer captain Mark Viduka.

The eight inductees will be honoured in a television special on December 2, when the winners of The Don and The Dawn awards will also be announced.

The Don award recognises the current Australian athlete or team whose achievements over the past 12 months are considered to have most inspired the nation.
