RIP Maurie Plant. If you were lucky enough to know him, his presence, personality and charm just sucked you right in. The mark you made in my life both as an athlete & as a friend was extraordinary. I love you, Maurice, and will miss you terribly. You’ll be forever in our hearts.

The news of our great friend and colleague Maurie Plant is terribly sad… however MP has not yet left us, although that outcome is inevitable in the coming hours or days. As Maurie himself would say in his inimitable style… “FFS… get it right.” Good on you MP, one of a kind.

Vale Maurie Plant.
He made an enormous contribution to Australian sport. He was also a ripping fella. Some irreplaceable memories from the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. pic.twitter.com/UKgumN0uxR
