    Key points:

    Peter Bol is the first Australian to make the 800m Olympic final since 1968
    The young athlete called Toowoomba home when he moved to Australia
    African-Australians in Toowoomba say his success helps them feel accepted as Australians
    Athing Mu, 19 y.o. USA 800m gold medalist, is also born of Sudanese immigrants.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Neither of which are massive problems in the Sudanese community

    Another interesting point is: Australia is winning many medals: why so much focus on someone who finished 4th? Just like with Freeman one - her medal was so ''special''...something to remind us of what political correctness is all about.

    Perhaps because it's a nice antidote to race-baiters who focus so much on a tiny percentage of crimes when there are so many criminals.

    Another interesting point: If Australians are so laissez-faire and she'll-be-right-mate, how is it that we win more medals per capita than e.g. China, USA and Japan?

    He was the first Aussie to even make the final since 1968, so finishing fourth (in the world!) is still a great result.

    White men cant jump. Obama still can do a great 3 pointer even now.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    "Peter Bol has changed how we see Sudanese people"

    This time last week, we were celebrating Peter Bol coming 4th in the men's 800m Olympic final.

    The whole country was watching.

    There was a 342% increase in viewers for that event compared to the Rio Olympics ...

    I haven't managed to see the whole race yet only when he is overtaken. Tried a few times

    thanks for that. Bol sort of pushed his passed pawn one rank too far too early, understandable when is a slow race. But terrific result against the world's best. Every recently-arrived minority needs good role models to engage their teenagers into society in a healthy way. Especially when there are issues of different colour, culture, social status and wealth.

    Quick on SBS TV

    Where did you come from?
    On the South Sudanese. Civil war created 2 million refugees
