John Landy was the Governor of Victoria during the 2006 Commonwealth Games. He wore this tracksuit and shoes when he handed the baton to the Queen, completing the baton relay. Landy’s role in the opening of the Games also looked back to the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, where he won the bronze medal in the 1500 metres.
