It was only his second public outing since being diagnosed with cancer, but
Milton wasn't going to miss the NSWIS Awards Dinner where he was recognised
as one of the state's most outstanding athletes.
Just two months after major surgery, Milton joined Ian Thorpe, Louise
Sauvage and hockey great Alyson Annan at the star-studded Sydney dinner
where all four received the inaugural award.
NSWIS Chief Executive, Charles Turner, said the award recognises the
outstanding achievement and unique personal contribution of an NSWIS
athlete to their chosen sport.
'It's a pleasure to honour four of Australia's greatest ever athletes,'
