In the 2004 Athens Olympic women’s eight rowing final, Sally Robbins stopped rowing. The media frenzy, and the discussion of national identity that followed are the starting points for From a distance by version 1.0. Using media transcripts and commentary on the ‘no row incident’, version 1.0 investigate Australian identity as defined through sport, probing the dark side of sport and nationalism with disturbing and frequently hilarious results.
