Whincup eyeing Greatest Athlete accolade

Jamie Whincup could add the prestigious title of 'Australia's Greatest Athlete' to his V8 Supercar win when he takes to the small screen for a new TV programme.

Whincup, who won his first championship for Team Vodafone in 2008, will go up against seven of Australia's best athletes to dispute the title of 'Australia's Greatest Athlete'.

Taking part in 15 events over different disciplines, although Whincup was forced to miss one of the events to attend the V8 Supercar Gala Awards, he is confident he will represent motorsport in the competition well.

“It was a privilege to be part of production and to be in the company of some of Australia's elite sports personalities,” he said. “I had an absolute ball doing the series and I am sure it will make for very entertaining viewing.

“Due to the timing of the filming I did have to miss one challenge to attend the V8 Supercar awards but it didn't hurt me too much.”
