Jeff Horn isn’t a name I’d heard until today. Let’s face it, I could count on one hand how many boxing matches I’ve watched and still have 2 or 3 fingers left over. Jeff is one of Australia’s Olympic hopeful athletes heading to London for the games. Listening to his family speak in this video about their son and grandson I’m going out on a limb and assuming they are a close family and I’m guessing from the country. Hard working, unassuming modest people now bursting with pride that their little boy is going to the Olympic Games.

AussieBum does a lot of good sponsoring the little underdog sporting teams and athletes. This video may not have all the flesh of their usual videos but I was genuinely moved by it. We’ll be cheering for you Jeff.
