Nikki Webster and daughter celebrate 20th anniversary of Sydney Olympics
“There was no written book on how to do it right. We just kind of went with it. Took the experience for what it was and that,” she explained.
“I got to be immersed with so many different people from around the world, I got to make music and clothing ranges and do so much,” she added.
The 33-year-old recently shared with news.com.au just how stressful the opening night ceremony was.
“The only thing I was nervous about was being able to fly, because that was a major part of it,” she said.
“I think in two of the dress rehearsals the week before it was so windy that I couldn’t fly.
“It wasn’t that I didn’t want to, but I wasn’t allowed to.
“Then on the day I remember the wind picked up in the afternoon and I thought it wasn’t going to happen, but thankfully it did.”
Webster was in a harness and was flown across the stadium for five minutes before landing and performing Under The Southern Skies.View this post on Instagram
20 years on, she's now the proud mother of two kids, Skylah, 5 and Malachi, 2.
To celebrate the anniversary of the Olympics with her family, she got out the pink floral dress that she wore on stage and was surprised her daughter could fit into it.
She's also excited to show her children and husband Matthew McMah the entire opening ceremony at the Sydney Olympics.View this post on Instagram
“I think she is ready to watch the whole thing,” she said.
“To understand the culture of Australia, the deep sea dreaming, and how the whole thing was represented.”
