It's for you, brother

Gutsy Loretta Harrop dedicated her triathlon silver medal to her brother Luke, who was killed in a car accident more than two years ago. Harrop went agonisingly close to winning Australia's first Olympic triathlon gold -- but the winner was as Aussie as they come. Geelong-born Kate Allen, who has switched allegiance to Austria, ran down Harrop in the last vital metres.

Loretta races in memory of Luke
LUKE His name is tattooed forever on her right ankle. His memory, just as permanently, in her heart. Loretta Harrop ran the race of her life in Athens yesterday, the inspiration of her late brother propelling her in the women's triathlon on a torturous course.
