Yellow athlete's number worn by Raelene Boyle at the 1976 Olympics. Cloth has a black "1" below the 1976 Olympic Games Rings logo. Eyelet in each corner. At these Olympics, Boyle finished fourth in the final of the 100 metre sprint, but was disqualified from the 200 metre-race for making two false starts. Unfortunately, a video replay later showed that she had not false started on her first start. However, Boyle did receive the honour of acting as the flag bearer for the Australian team, the first woman to do so.
