Sydney, September 27th 2000 -- Sydney 2000 medallists are helping to create a permanent legacy of the Millennium Games by taking part in daily handprinting ceremonies at the Olympic Rendezvous @ Samsung.

In conjunction with Olympic Aid, Samsung is inviting all Sydney 2000 medal winners to leave their handprints at special hand-printing ceremonies taking place at 11:00 and 18:10 each day.

To date, over 70 Olympic medal winners have attended the handprinting ceremonies including:
 US Swimming 3X Gold Medallist, Lenny Krayzelburg

 US 400m Gold Medallist, Michael Johnson

Many countries have been represented at the handprinting ceremonies, including Australia, France, The Netherlands, Canada, US, Indonesia, Korea, Thailand and China, with many more planning to drop in during the last week of the Games.

At the completion of the Games, all the ink handprints will be donated to the Australian Olympic Committee in order to commemorate all Olympic Medallists.
